A miscellanous variety of plants that will be added to over the week. Plants MUST be picked up weekdays between 5.45pm and 6.30pm by prearrangement or on the last day for pick up being Saturday 19th October between 9.30am and 10.30am.

Basically I'm offering a lucky dip where it's first come first served and you are given the opportunity to view what plants I have available and take those which appeal to you. I welcome swaps for plants, seeds or potting mix of your own (any condition or expired is fine). If you have nothing to swap I will also take gold coins for each plant that you take.

The photos are indicative of some of the plants that could be available but I won't hold items or answer questions about individual plants currently available as it will be consistently changing.

A great opportunity for those willing to take a gamble and get a few plants sorted before the long weekend ahead.
