Recycling Plants

Searching for bargains!

This year the Plant Bring and Buy Sale was over the weekend 22nd/23rd May at Marbury Park.  Members of FoAM were again very generous in contributing their surplus plants.  Some had taken cuttings, divided plants or grown on seedlings and labelled them.  There was a good supply of garden plants including assorted herbaceous perennials, pelargoniums, cowslips, carnations, primroses, herbs and tomatoes.  Remaining plants went on sale at Marbury the following weekend.  It was particularly encouraging that a number of youngsters wanted to take part.  We asked for 50p per pot, but we received many appreciative donations for such bargains and in total we raised about £130.  If we are to do the same again next year, you will soon need to start thinking about what cuttings you need to take or which plants need splitting in your garden.
