Trans-plant 33

With no printer, and no envelopes left, I found a great little tutorial for origami envelopes. After folding some paper and writing a little bilingual message (with the help of Google Translate - my new best friend) we headed off to leave some Petersilie (parsley) seeds while on our evening walk through the parks and markets of Kreuzberg, Berlin.

If you picked up one of these packets, we would love to hear from you through the comments at the end of this post.

Take care

This was really done over 2 days but the locations were so similar that I thought I could get away with one post.

Trans-plant 29

Wanted to let you know 10 packs of sunflower seeds have been dispatched in Melbourne and Woodend.  Such a fun project, I felt pretty conspicuous taking photos, but it’s great to be a little silly sometimes. 


Another packet of seeds has been found. Woohoo!
Read all about it here.

Spring into Sowing

With Spring not not far away in the southern hemisphere, many of you will be getting seedlings underway for your beautiful new season vegetables. This is a great time to think about the 'trans-plants' you could be doing in early September. We thought this would be a perfect opportunity to have another Giving Day on 1 September. Who's in?

If you aren't too sure what you should be planting at this time of year, no matter which hemisphere you are in, head over to some of the links in the sidebar that give great planting calendars.

It will be really exciting to see how many people think they might like to join in. Why not leave a little message letting everyone know that you would like to play. You might even already know what you will be planting.

Remember that enthusiasm is contagious, so please spread the word.

I just wanted to let you know that the daughters and I had an action packed morning dropping off half a dozen seed packets around the place (North-west Melbourne outskirts). Have posted about it on the blog

This was SO much fun, I can't wait to try it with actual newspaper pots...

Sharing with 720ABC

This morning I headed into the ABC studios here in Perth to be interviewed by the wonderful Roots and Shoots team. James, Sabrina and Olivia were so welcoming and excited to hear about Sow. Give. Grow.

There has been a great response this morning following the chat.

I hope that those of you who listened feel enthused to join in the fun.

Take care

I trans-planted 5 more Cape Gooseberries while on a little trip to East Perth.
I hope these all manage to get rehomed.
Are you the new owner of one of these little plants? Which one did you find? Where was it?

Trans-plant 25

Hi, I left two packets of Poor Man’s Beans at Nanango markets this morning.  I got a bit shy and didn’t take a photo of where I left them!  They were next to the toilet block.  I didn’t see if anyone took them, so I hope they found a nice new home today.

WARNING: If you are the lucky recipient of one of these fabulous packets, look at what you have to look forward to. It's a biggie.

Trans-plant 24 - Giving Day

Hello there.
I have just returned from trans-planting 10 little Cape Gooseberry seedlings. I hope that they are all on their way to a new home.
If you happened to find one of these and take it home, I would love to hear from you: either send me an email or add a comment to this post. It would be great to find out which one/s you found and what were your initial thoughts.

I had a great time going around and dropping these around the northern suburbs of Perth.

Yours in sneakiness

Friday the First

It has been wonderful to have so many positive comments coming through about the idea behind Sow. Give. Grow.

We were thinking that to really kick-start things, we could have a Giving Day. Get yourself prepared.

The plan is that on Friday 1st July seeds and seedling will be trans-planted all over the world. We would  love for you, the Sowers and Givers, to mark this day in your diary.

If you are unsure of how to get started, read all about being a Sower or a Giver and join in the fun.

Once you have trans-planted your seeds or seedlings, take a photo and then email it to us, making sure to include

  • who you are
  • where you left your seeds or seedling
  • when you trans-planted

We look forward to sharing your adventure with other through the blog.

Take care

Trans-plant 23

Hi Guys, So I guess you've heard I've done my Trans-plant. It was FUN! I felt really nervous leaving my little package behind and I do wonder all the time if anyone ever claimed it. I hope so, hope it's snug somewhere in someones garden! Be nice to hear from them. I was hoping for a photo to stick on my post today too, but it did not eventuate, have you ever had one of those moments when your all geared up for the shot of the year and your camera batteries die.. :( Just Plain Old Bad Luck! I was so mad and nearly didn't leave it but I went to the mountain for a purpose and I did my little job. I sowed, I gave and now I hope it will grow! I'm hoping to do another one soon anyway, maybe even a couple and I'll make sure I get some snaps over to you. Happy Growing!
