Count down to the big Plant Swap Event (just outside Brighton)

IMG_2336New meet ups this week with the Chelsea fringe in Brighton Group have picked up the excitement for the event. It is now only 3 weeks away…

I had my posters and flyers delivered today (c/o Ty Abiodun), so I will be on the road this weekend to hand them out.

On Tuesday evening I’m having some volunteers around to help make signage and bunting for the event, helped along with a few nibbles and a glass of wine, of course.

I am now on twitter – check out Wendy A Rose, and a Facebook page called Recycling Plants.

We have more plants being offered for swapping

Scabious, Crocosmia lucifer, Irises, Day lilies, House Leeks and Plumpton College have offered quite a few annuals.  Please do join in the conversation of what you might be bringing.

Can’t wait to see you all on the 18th May Newtimber Place, 1 – 5pm BN6 just £2 entry.  If you don’t have a plant to swap just come along to enjoy the garden, tea and cakes.  Carol has started baking already with some gorgeous lemon drizzle cakes..

Proceeds will be going to the charity
