Chimaera Posted April 13, 2020 Report Share Posted April 13, 2020 With garden centres closed and with a surplus of plants that I would usually give away to relatives and friends , I have decided to put a charity plant stall outside my house- I am on route to the park and get passing dog walkers etc. I have floated the idea with the local community Facebook page and they seem keen. At first it will be a few spare tomatoes and Hosta divisions, but I have done some divisions of VFTs, Mexican pings and D. capensis that I will put out when they look less scruffy (with a proper care sheet!). Hopefully I can spread the CP love and make some money for NHS charities at the same time. The idea is to have a table with an honesty payment where there is a minimum price (suggesting that more is better) for each plant (I think £3 for VFTs, £2 for small capensis) with the web address of 2 local hospital charity sites to chose from to pay into. I recon most people here are pretty honest. I will launch this coming weekend and if it works well, I will come here and let people know in case they want to do something similar. I don't have any spare Sarracenia that would be suitable for a first timers (short, clump forming such as S. purpurea and purp hybrids) but if anyone has any spares I could have for not much money I would be interested in a few to add to the table.
