We are calling upon all gardeners to spring clean their sheds, clear out their bookshelves, gather up their garden plants, and join the first RHS Great Garden Swap at RHS Garden Hyde Hall on 3 – 4 June 2011.
The Swap is open to everyone, and visitors can bring gardening books, magazines, seeds, tools or any kind of herbaceous plant material to swap with goodies from other people’s gardens and garden sheds. We will also be contributing plants and seeds, so visitors will have the chance to go home with their own piece of an RHS garden. RHS experts will also be on hand to help identify plants and give advice to swappers about where to plant and how to look after their new plants or seeds. In these times of austerity, when everyone’s watching their spending, sapping plants is a great way to get more for your gardens with no extra cost.
Please, no trees, shrubs, other woody plants or electrical items.
