Spring is just around the corner and it’s time to start thinking about what you want to grow in the garden, balcony and allotment this year. Come along to the first ever ‘Seed Swap’ event at the Hertford Town and Tourist Information Centre on Saturday 21st March between 12noon and 3pm.
The ‘Seed Swap’ scheme is an opportunity for local gardeners to break open their seed collections and trade seeds for ones they will. This ‘Seed Swap’ is about sharing surplus seeds with others, creating an opportunity to pick up new varieties of produce and save money on buying new seeds. It is also a good opportunity to network with other growers and share ideas and tips.
We ask that you ensure your seeds are clearly labelled including details on which of the categories the seeds fall within: ‘Brassicas’, ‘Vegetables and Lettuces’, ‘Root vegetables’, ‘Herbs’, ‘Flowers’ (Annuals and Perennials). If your seeds don’t fit into the set categories there will be a ‘Random’ area as well but please provide as much information as possible.
The seed exchange event is free for those that also provide seeds to exchange. For those wanting to purchase seeds a fee of 50p per pack of seeds will be and donated to Mudlarks Community Garden.
Hertford Town Council thank Van Hage Garden Centre in Great Amwell who have generously donated seeds for this event. Any leftover seeds will be donated to Mudlarks Community Garden for use at their allotment site or areas within the Hertford Castle Grounds which they attend to.
Date: Saturday 21st March 12noon - 3pm
Location: Hertford Town and Tourist Information Centre
