A swapshop would be good especially if you are looking for particular plants etc.I do alot of cuttings and have some rare ones such as buddejlea "summer gold" which is easy to grow and has bright yellow flowers instead of the common blue or white ones.
I live in a street of 30 houses and find that the neighbours want LARGE plants only(for instant gardens) or are suspicious of me and come up with comments like"....why are you doing this?" Maybe they think that I want something from them!! Yet they go into garden centres and buy plants which cost the earth and want to know why they died!
As a result, my garden is full of pots, very like a garden centre! I do give plants to school fetes but this year they told me that they could not sell them as they were too small.
