The BIG SEED SWAP
10 am – 2 pm, Saturday 7th February, 2015
The Courtyard Theatre, Hereford
All welcome at this FREE event!
11 am – TALK: ‘Saving seed made simple’, Pauline Pears.
We’re very pleased to welcome Pauline who has worked for Garden Organic for many years, written 5 books, and been editor of the Organic Way.
The usual range of stalls to browse including: garden tools, wildflowers, all things honey bee and our ever popular tool sharpener… plus kids activities!
Bring: saved, heritage varieties and commercial seeds, cuttings, plants, tubers. If you haven’t anything to take this year come anyway and could still leave with enough seed to fill your patch of ground with edibles and flowers throughout the summer.
PLEASE: make sure all saved seed has the name, variety (if known) and date it was harvested on the envelope – Thanks!
Meet old friends and make new ones at this friendly event for green thumbs and green horns; gardeners new and old. Lots of interesting stuff turns up on the table including old, rare varieties but commercial seed packets, plants, cuttings and tubers are all welcome. And there will be plenty of seasoned gardeners there to share advice for new growers – questions welcome.
