    Default GreenPlantSwap

    Has anyone had experience (positive or negative) of using greenplantswap?
    I just joined it and am curious to see how it goes...

    I joined it 6 years ago when there was nobody else nearby - and forgot all about it.

    I've just looked and there are a lot more members now. Only one with something to swap.

    I'd not heard of that before done a vine search and it only brings up one thread from 2013, just had a look and only one person nearish to me.

    I went to local pant and seed swap last year, just in a village hall - seemed to work OK.

    Did you get some to fit you?

    Sorry, it was to good to ignore.

    Yeah, it seems to lack momentum, which is a bit of a shame. The number of members etc is too low to have critical mass.
    Thanks for all responses, which confirm my gut feel on it...!

    The cost of postage is probably a big issue for any setup which is not based locally, so people can meet up.
