Autumn Gathering

October 22, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Seed Swap – how does it work?

On the Seed Swap table, the seeds are placed in boxes by type of seed, eg annual flowers, wildflowers, perennial flowers, and vegetable seeds as brassicas, roots, peas, and beans etc.  If you have seeds to donate, just place them in the appropriate box.  Help yourself to the seeds you would like to take.  If you haven’t any seeds to donate, then feel free to help yourself to seeds and then give a donation in the bowl on the table.

If you are bringing seeds they can be part or full packets.  Make sure they are still in date.  If they are seeds you have collected yourself, note the type of seed and date collected on the envelope or packet.

Plant swap – how does it work

This is a good time of year to split perennials and dig out excess plants from the garden.  Why not put them in a plant pot and bring them along to swap?  The plant swap works just like the seed swap.  You bring along plants that you want to share and take away plants that you would like to grow.  If you would like to take plants, but have no plants to share, please make a donation to the bowl on the plant table.

It’s a good idea to label the plant and add any useful information such as the conditions best for the plant.

Donations will go towards the costs of the event.
