HOW TO FIND PLANTS ON

SOCIAL MEDIA

-

Twitter

Search for “#seedswap” and filter by “latest” for the most recent results. Advance search will allow you to narrow down your search area if you’re after something closer to home.

Instagram

Tap the save icon on the bottom left of the image. I keep an album specifical­ly for plants I’d like to grow in my saved images, which I refer to when making orders.

Facebook

Join local and horticultu­ral groups to see who might have things to spare. Facebook Marketplac­e can be a haven of bargain plants, seedlings and other accessorie­s (genuine anecdotal examples include free slate tiles and a £20 shed) but those who check regularly will get the best finds.
