@sweetestsin:  Although I generally don’t like this kind of ad on Craigslist, (because people waste time coming across town for something that might already be gone),you could just mention that you are putting the plants out by the curb and that you will delete your ad the minute the plants are taken.

Yeah, I do Craigslist freefrom that kind of thing. I email my address to the first person who responds and tell them they are outside by the mailbox. If they don’t show up, I email the next person. That way no one is in my house and im not posting my address online. Alternately, you coud just put them on the curb with a big free sign. If people pass by, they’ll get picked up.

Eta: just saw you’re in a condo. Is there a share mailbox or common area? Put them there with a free sign (note that they’re healthy but you’re moving and can’t take them). I imagine theyll be picked up within an hour!

@sweetestsin:  You can see if there is a Freecycle group in your area. It’s a Yahoo group, and as the name suggests, it’s made up of people giving away and/or requesting free items. I’ve given away plants this way in the past and often see them advertised.

You could chec k with your local women;s shelter. They often take donations for women who are looking to start up new households and some potted plants might be a nice addition. No Guarentees on that one though!

In addition to freecycle or craigslist, how about a nursing facility? Ask if you could donate them to the facility itself, or give them to the residents.

 

And I’ve had better luck putting things by the curb with a sale sign. They seem to disappear faster than items with “free” on them.

Maybe put up a sign/send out an email at work and see if anyone wants them?
