The Great Library Seed and Plant Swap 2018

Spring is on its way and to celebrate the season of growing and gardening we are hosting seed and plant swaps in the first half of September.

Bring in your extra seeds and small plants and we’ll put them out to share.

We welcome vegetable, herb, flower, native, and heritage seeds. You can bring any spare potted-up seedlings. Seeds can be dropped in anytime before or during seed swap season, 1 – 15 September.

    Love this activity
    Would really like it if you could also swap gardening books! Seems like many of us Gardeners have a few too many books and garden magazines we could share along with our seedlings?
    Thanks!

    GREAT IDEA havin a seed and plant swap but 1Sept is at least a month too early to have seedlings ready. Most gardeners will start planting seeds in Sept ready for transplanting in October.
    How about another swap mid October.
