Every year, at the beginning of spring, Seedy Sunday provides a great opportunity to swap your surplus seeds or plants (flowers, veg or fruit) for others.  So, whether you have grown too many cuttings, collected too many seeds for your use or have unused commercial seeds, just bring them along to the event on the day. Alternatively if you can’t be there please ring 07760 425828 and we’ll come and collect.
Even if you don’t have any plants or seeds to bring to swap, come anyway as you can always ‘buy’ these items for a small donation AND there are plenty of other stalls to visit.  The event is not just for experienced gardener: it is particularly useful if you are a novice gardener or have a brand new garden and are looking for ideas to get started.
More Veg, who sell seeds in small quantities, will be present, as usual, and  early vegetable  seedlings will be on sale.   There will also be many other stalls selling local produce, garden related items and crafts.   A garden tool sharpening service will be provided too.
Information on how to grow sustainably will be available plus a Recycling Corner. You may pick up a bargain!   Please bring along any unwanted garden items that are in reasonable condition, but no small plastic pots please.
As usual, you can enjoy a cup of tea or coffee and a slice of homemade cake.
