Ready, set, grow

Can you find a pot that is pottier than a potty?

It’s competition time

Plant and Share Month is all about making the most of growing your own, sharing seeds of friendship, and of course enjoying local, seasonal produce. And it doesn’t stop at the growing. Why buy new when just about anything can be a container for planting in? As long as you can pop holes in the bottom, pretty much any vessel is a pot waiting for a plant!


We’ll be giving a prize of £100 garden centre vouchers to the most unusual growing container! All you have to do is pick your pot, plant your crop and send us a snap or short video on social media.


At Food for Life Get Togethers HQ, we couldn’t contain ourselves and we’ve started growing already.


Katherine Oliver, Service Design Manager, planted her seeds in paper coffee cups and has pledged to share a lettuce plant with her elderly neighbour. Regional Engagement Officer Anne Merry planted a potty of parsley to share with local volunteers!

Can you find a pot that is pottier than a potty? Submit your entries by posting a short video (show us all angles!) or photo on Twitter or Facebook using #PlantandShare.


The winner will be announced 19th May at our Plant and Share celebration event, and shared on social.
