Calling all Vegetable Gardeners

Take the opportunity to extend the range of vegetables you grow by bringing spare seedlings or plants to our Seedlings and Plant Swap and getting others in exchange.

The Foxlowe gardeners organise this event, supported by Transition Leek, to follow the (Feb-April) Seed Swaps each spring.  The aim is to help to cut gardening costs and avoid seed and plant 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.  Although this event is predominantly about plants and will be held in the garden, packets of seeds are also welcome, as are jars of homemade jam and chutney.

There will be direct swaps between 11.00 am and 1.30 pm but after that individual plants can be taken without the need for a swap.

Surplus stock will be given away on Moorlands Freecycle.
