  • Swap interests

    I'd like to swap with local people and I'm particularly interested in obtaining small colourful alpine plants, but I'm happy to consider anything which I don't already have in my garden. I could swap (subject to availability), various sempervivums, saxifrage, grasses and some perennials.
