Do you have a local Freecycle website, keep an eye on it. I have seen greenhouses, lawnmowers and other gardening equipment offered free, also a handy way to offload surplus plants.

Hi Tussiemussie. I recently joined my local freecycle and you are right... there is all sorts of stuff being given away.

We've been members for over a year now, thanks to our daughter in SW London who told us about it. I was able to take a load of surplus plants round to a lady with an empty plot having just moved in! I was unlucky asking for one lot of terracotta pots, but then got 2 pots and 2 troughs! It's a great way to recycle. I recommend it to anyone. Go to and click on your County or area to find your nearest group. We belong to 2, as our nearest only had a few members.

We used Freecycle a lot recently with our hoped for move. There's endless stuff that you need to get rid of that is too good to dump (although there's lots of that too). We've had so many thanks from people that were "just looking for one of those". I'd encourage everyone to participate and save the landfill.
