Garden Swappers

Gardens and computers are an unlikely duo but for thousands of WA green thumbs, Facebook is blooming with inspiration.

Sharmain Devereaux created the 'Perth plants' Facebook page: an online community obsessed with gardening--where members can buy, sell and swap plants.

While the page is a fantastic way to get into gardening, it's important to point out why plants from accredited nurseries cost more.

They don't sell declared weeds

All plants are produced hygienically

And they're certified pest and disease free

As for the page, Sharmain hopes it continues to blossom.

If you want to become a part of Perth's green thumb club type 'Perth plants seeds or cuttings, free or for sale' in the Facebook search bar and request to join.
