Take a stroll around Charlton and buy some plants this Thursday

Plant sale flyer

If your garden or window boxes could do with brightening up, Charlton Community Gardens is offering you the chance to pick up some new plants and to get a spot of exercise at the same time.

The group traditionally ran a plant sale at Charlton station each year, but during last year’s lockdown opted to hold it from people’s from gardens instead. It was such a hit, the group is doing the same again this year.

So this Thursday evening, you’ll be able to pick up plants from front gardens on Wyndcliff Road, Sandtoft Road, Inverine Road and Elliscombe Road. It starts at 5.30pm, and you’ll be able to pay for your plants using honesty boxes or the group’s JustGiving page.
