There seems to be numerous websites claiming to give away plants for free, from vegetebles, shrubs, to trees. The idea is very honorable, and has attracted the attention of all the people that love a good solid free gift, but when they ask you to pay S&H charges, that takes all the fun of "free" out of it, right?

After searching through several website that claimed to give away plants for free, we have only found one for you to try.


FreePlant did not ask us for shipping and handling. They only required you to register, and only make one request per day. Of course it is unknown if the plant we chose will show up in our mailbox, or not.
