Our second Give and Grow Plant Swap took place on Sunday May 1st in the Library Courtyard. There was a splendid array of plants brought in – everything from an olive tree down to a packet of seeds to a pile of jerusalem artichokes. A steady trickle of people came to enjoy the sunshine and ambience in the courtyard, chat, and browse for items to take home for their gardens.
There are still a good quantity of plants left if anyone wishes to (re)visit and take some – any time the library is open. Part of what remains will be donated to stalls at the forthcoming Garden Street Market, and part will remain on the Permanent stall which we hope will encourage the free exchange of plants and produce throughout the year. So if you find yourself with a surplus of anything (soon we might be confident that the risk of frost is over!?) please take it along and leave it on the stand.
