How to share your seedlings

Do you have seedlings to spare after your spring sowings? Did you take part in the RHS Big Seed Sow? Why not share your plants with your community or neighbourhood! 

How we make a difference

We’ve collaborated with Project Grow to bring you a set of handy plant label templates, so that you can pass on your excess seedlings and give their new owners all the tips and information needed to nurture them. Keep reading to download your labels and find out more about Project Grow.

As part of our season of summer support, we’ve teamed up with Project Grow to create these bespoke plant labels which you can attach to your spare seedlings and plants. Use the pre-filled or blank labels to help share the power of plants – together, we can form strong social connections and create a sense of belonging in our environment and community.

Who are Project Grow?

Project Grow is a Gloucestershire based community growing project growing, distributing produce via food banks, pantries, community kitchens and charities in Cheltenham and surrounding areas. Project Grow also creates campaigns and resources to inspire people to grow, take back control of their food, health and wellbeing, and work together for a sustainable food system.

As part of the RHS Big Seed Sow, Project Grow created colourful plant labels to help volunteers match the plant with their colour-coded care guidance. The labels drew people to the plants, and directed people to digital growing instructions via a QR code - with the colourful nature of the labels attracting both children and adults!

“The colourful labels really stand out against the green plants and bring a smile.”
