THE BIG HEREFORDSHIRE SEED SWAP 2013 - has been and gone for this year I’m afraid. Look on the events page for others yet to come.
A big thank you to all of you wonderful people who came with pockets and bags and boxes and trays full of seeds and plants! It was lovely to see all the regulars in the throng and welcome new faces. After the wash-out summer last year I can tell you we were all a little anxious that there would be enough on the table – but you pulled out all the stops and a truly magnificent amount of seed changed hands.As ever a lot of interesting heritage varieties showed up amongst the huge range of edibles and ornamentals – let’s hope we have a better season this year to do them justice.
Thank all of those who supported us so generously with donations and enable this to be an annual event and to our community of stall-holders who help
make the event so much fun. A special mention for Hannah Wilks, Head Gardener, Hampton Court, Herefordshire who gave a truly inspiring talk.
Keep saving those seeds and see you next year!
