Seed packets

Share seeds and seedlings

Take the opportunity to extend the range of vegetables you grow by bringing surplus seeds to our Seed Swap/Share and getting others in exchange.

The Foxlowe gardeners organise a couple of seed shares each spring (March & April).  The aim is to help to cut gardening costs and avoid seed wastage, while increasing the range of crops that gardeners can grow.  It is also a great opportunity for gardeners to get together and talk about their favourite (or otherwise) plants.  Half packets and saved seeds are welcome.

If you don’t have any of your own seeds to swap, feel free to take some packets in exchange for a donation.  We always have plenty.

Seedlings are also welcome. The Foxlowe gardeners aim to bring some – details to follow.

Heritage seeds grown and saved by the Foxlowe gardeners and supporters

These are seeds that are ideal for home growing rather than commercial use because they don’t all mature at the same time.  They cannot usually be sold on the commercial market. The gardeners will bring as many as they have available.
