The Free Pot Swap Shop

Welcome to the Free Pot Swap Shop!

This is a matching service to link any organisation or individual who wants donations of used pots, trays, modules or any other gardening equipment, with gardeners who have a surplus to give away.

Below you will find a county-by-county list of school gardens, community gardens, CSAs, allotment sites, individual gardeners and any other organisation which wants to get its hands on your pots.

Please get in touch directly with the organisation and arrange a drop-off within the times specified in each entry.

Please clean donated pots first and make sure they are in good working order. Thank you!

If you are interested in receiving donations, please scroll down to the bottom of the page where you will find a form to fill in! Alternatively you can get in touch with me on Twitter (@sallynex or using the hashtag #gardeningwithoutplastic).
