"Free Plants, Seeds and Flowers"
Home gardeners give away free plants and flowers almost every day on new GardenHere Internet site. Home gardeners save $10's, --even $100's on their landscape and home gardening projects. It's easy, fun, and a great way to make new friends. Visitors to GardenHere forums find listings of free plants, flowers, and seeds or place a notice telling other members what they are looking for.
“Giving away extra plants is a tradition for many home gardeners,” says webpage owner Al Stubblefield. “Just this year, I sent Fuchsia starts to a home gardener in Arizona and Wisteria, Ivy, and Daylilies to GardenHere members in Wisconsin, North Dakota, Montana, and Oregon –all free. It took only a short trip to post office for me and cost of postage for my new home gardening friends.”
One forum member from Adair,Oklahoma said, “I have just recently found this forum (Website) and absolutely love it. If anyone would be interested in some Bearded Irises, please let me know. I have three beds that are extremely out of control!” Another home gardener from Boulder, Montana had this to say about GardenHere Website, “I just wanted to thank you for this wonderful website you have created. This is a great idea . . .!”
Winter Gardening FunWritten by Ben J. Mann
“Exchanging Plants, Seeds and Flowers for Winter Gardening Fun”
Exciting New Winter Garden Fun!
GardenHere turns grey cold weather months into exciting home gardening fun. While other gardening enthusiast are waiting for Spring plant and seed catalogs, GardenHere members are busy growing landscape and flower starts in their window sills to trade with other home gardeners around country.
“Winter can be a really fun time of year for home gardeners,” said Al Stubblefield, designer and owner of GardenHere Website. “Many of our members in North root plant cuttings in kitchen glasses to offer in exchange for postage or other plants they would like to acquire. Some members offer to trade flower seeds they harvested earlier in year.
“Even though outside temperatures in my state can easily hit freezing or below this time of year, I have Fuchsia starts and Geraniums in my sunroom window that will be ready for trade in a couple of weeks. There is still a bucket of Daylily and Iris tubers in garage that I didn’t have time to get in ground this fall. I’m sure some of our GardenHere members will want them when spring arrives.”
Most gardeners in South never see snow or experience temperatures even close to freezing. Some garden fanatics in North protect their prize plants in home greenhouses. Most of these gardeners have too many of some plants and would like to either give a way some of their extra landscape plants and flowers or trade for plant varieties they do not already have.
The GardenHere Internet site makes it easy to exchange plants, seeds and flowers. It takes about 60 seconds to register and membership is free. After that, home gardeners can place messages in forums offering their extra plants and flowers, or tell other members what they would like in exchange. It’s all very simple and fun.
