For anyone in the locality there is the annual seed swap event this Saturday in Exeter.  I went last year and thoroughly enjoyed it.  Gave me a good chance to get rid of duplicate / unwanted seeds and pick up a couple of interesting things in return.  They also have various sellers there - one of my faves is Thomas Etty for wierd, wonderful heirloom varieties.

Hoping for sun - see you there? Cheers

Oh Ruth I would love to be there, but perhaps it is just a tad too far away!  Big_Laugh

Your seed swap site is a really good link, Ruth.

Very informative Doh

I wonder if there are many more such events all over the country that we never hear about?

We had a seed swap with our wee gardening group but as there was only 5 of us managed that day, I don't think it could be classed as an event.  Big_Laugh  But it was worthwhile.

Try here for other details.  Annoyingly it's alphabetical rather than in date order though.  For the Exeter one I'm a member of their FB group so get notified that way.  Ok

Another good and informative site, Ruth. Makes me think that we should compile a list of links to great seed sites like the two you mentioned.

Anybody up for it?

My time is really restricted but it would be a great resource for all gardeners and beginners or wannabes.

(love your seed evening, Danast!)
