Seed Swop: Saturday March 13th 10 am – 1pm
The Plough are kindly allowing us to hold a seed swop in their coffee shop. So often a packet contains more seeds than we need, so this is the opportunity to give them away in exchange for some others. Even if you have no seeds to swop, for a small donation you will be able to buy a “pinch” of seeds, perhaps of a plant you hadn’t thought of trying!
Beccy Middleton, a student from Rosemoor, is championing this for us, and is arranging for there to be a stock of seeds from Heritage Seeds. There will be also growing advice and ideas on how to save and store seeds.
