Meet some fellow plant lovers and add to your collection by swapping some treasures from your garden. 


  1. Bring along any plants and/or cuttings you are willing to trade
  2. Bring one or a few, it’s up to you! Participants will swap for an equal amount to what they have contributed
  3. Contributions should be healthy and pest/disease free
  4. Label your plant (if you know the name)
  5. Like will be traded for like (plant for plant, cutting for cutting)
  6. Have fun!

Tondoon Botanic Gardens have also generously donated various plants from their Port Curtis Collection to include in the swap!
