I swap babies and divisions and cuttings with members of my garden group. I donate plants to a charity sale but, as I help run it, I buy some too and I swap plants with the lady who comes and helps me once a fortnight. She has plants she thinks I should have and I have plants she can use in her garden or give to other clients, including my nieghbour across the road who gifted me half her gardener's time while I was laid up having new feet.
Gardeners are very swappy, generous people but I do have masses of seeds I've put off sowing because of lack of space or time and am determined to get those treasures popped and growing so, like I said, no new seeds - just yet.
