Plant exchange in Lanvallay in Brittany
Each year I take part of Lanvallay plant exchange also called “Troc plantes”. Organised by a few local French people – keen gardeners -, it takes place twice a year, the last Sunday of October and March. It always falls the same day as when we put the clocks forwards and backwards so it is easy to remember!
How does it work?
Just bring your “unwanted” plants, cuttings, seeds, bulbs, etc and in exchange, you will take different plants home. At the beginning, 4 years ago, I used to leave with more than you came with. Now it is the opposite, I go there with a whole boot full of plants (perennials, flowers and herbs). It is a great way to get free and healthy plants!
If you wish to take part, just come along, you don’t have to book. You will find us on the car park opposite the church in Lanvallay between 10 am and 12 pm.

If you are a keen gardener, you might also be interested of the plant sale which will take place on Easter Sunday this year. Here is the post about it.
See you there!
