Morning everyone, I've been trying to post this for two hours, is anyone else having problems? My #mondaymotivation is to grow these from collected seeds. I'm not having much luck so far though , any #advice would be most welcome 💗

Morning Jeremy, there is a man around the corner from me who sells his excess plants off for his charity. These cost me 60p each and they were full of buds. I see he’s got some more out, guess where I’ll be going today 😍 @jpea

I'd be right beside you Jane, we have a donation table at our local shop which is fine but its only got some straggly tomato plants now so I visit most plant stands at the shops @pelly

Morning Elise, thank you. I’m quite impressed with myself as for once it wasn’t an accident 😂 @auricula

It’s such a cheap was of buying plants. If I have any odd bits of change I always sling it in the pot because the plants are worth so much more 👍 @jpea

Agreed, its such a shame to throw excess plants away when charities can benefit @pelly

It’s such a good idea. We do the same in our village. £1 for each plant which then goes to charity. Everyone wins and no poor plants wasted 😊
