"You Call,you dig,you haul, that's all"
Updated almost every day with new offerings, the Adopt-A-Plant list is accessible as a PlantAmnesty membership benefit. And now we've added GREEN SHARE! It works like Adopt-A-Plant, but it's about accessories. That's right! Adopt-a-Plant is not just about plants any more, it's also about all those important accessories for your garden.
Although only PlantAmnesty members have access to these orphans to add to their gardens, anyone may list plants, or other garden-related items, for adoption -- and we hope you will. Just contact PlantAmnesty (206-783-9813 or email@example.com). Our staff will work with you to write up the ad and put it up online for you. Once up online, the Adopt-a-Plant list is available only to our 1,200 PlantAmnesty members. If someone sees a plant they want, they contact the owner directly and make arrangements to come and pick up or dig up the plant. If they dig it up, they fill the hole as best they can and leave things tidy. There are a few limitations, however. We don’t put plants taller than 10' on the list, nor do we post magnolias, madronas, daphnes, or camellias because they rarely transplant successfully. Below is the information we need to write the ad:
Name of plant (both common and botanical names are helpful, but if you only know one, that's ok)
Adopt-A-Plant is free; there is no charge for giving or receiving. Shrubs and trees over 10 feet tall are most often too big to move privately. If you have a tree that is a better candidate for removal than for Adopt-A-Plant, the PlantAmnesty Referral Service has names of professional diggers.
