Chorlton Plant Swap

Chorlton Plant Swap has been running since 2008, helping people in south Manchester to swap their surplus plants and seeds.
We swap online all year round on our Facebook group: Please join us there!
We also try to run live swaps in south Manchester in spring, summer and autumn. If you know of any events where we could hold a stall, please let us know by emailing Danielle at [email protected].

Our next live swap - as opposed to swapping via the Facebook group - is:
Saturday 21 September, 10-4pm at the monthly Chorlton Makers Market. This is based on Manchester Road in Chorlton outside the library.  We will be by the Community Garden next to the library; use the postcode M21 9PN. Bring healthy indoor or outdoor, ornamental or edible plants to swap. Bring seeds, including any you have saved yourself; but keep any found in your grand-dad's shed from 1972 for your own experiments ;-)


leaflet with propagation info

Pick up a leaflet with some free seeds and find out how to propagate plants so you'll have loads to share.  You can make new plants by collecting and sowing seeds, by taking cuttings and by dividing existing plants. Why spend money when you don't need to? You'll also save on paying for and over-accumulating endless plastic pots. Win-win. You can download a copy of the leaflet here, although we can't send you free digital seeds ;-)
