advice for starting a seed swap event

Posted: 11/05/2013 at 18:09

Hi cotty, only started seed swopping this year, mainly on here, but I did go to one locally and that was in March. It was a very relaxed swop so much so that I forgot to take any seeds, and just gave a donation for any seeds that I wanted.

The one I went to was advertised in our "green book", maybe check with the council and other groups to see what's out there already or as a way to advertise.

Think the hardy plant society has a yearly one which might be useful for information.

Good luck with yours, I've really enjoyed all the swopping I've done so far

Garden spending is so much more fun chicky. 

I could easily make room for another. Are you just starting new compost in each  or are you moving it between the bins?

garden before we started our garden design 3 years ago..
