Give the Plants a Chance seeks to encourage the sharing of excess plant material and horticultural supplies.

Is your garden overrun with volunteer plants? Are the seedlings you started too numerous for your plot? Do you have a shed full of old garden tools, or does your favorite house plant need dividing? If so, share the info on our site and help these worthy plants and supplies find new homes. And it works both ways: before you run to the nursery or garden center, you can check to see what your neighbors are offering—the perfect plant could be right next door.

A beautiful and diverse garden can be cultivated from very little if we just give the plants a chance!
