“If you’re looking for something pretty to plant in your garden or maybe grow a few vegetables, then this Bring & Buy plant sale is the place to be,” the organisers say.

“If you have any pot plants or surplus trays of seedlings, please bring them along and donate them to our Ecology Centre Plant Stand. All money raised on this stand goes to our Wildlife Rescue Fund and directly benefits local wildlife.”
