CARE Suffolk Seed Swap 2022

Back for a second year, our seed swap basket will again be available for you to browse through at your own leisure!

Swapping seeds with friends and other gardeners in your neighbourhood is a great way to increase the variety of what you grow, share spare seeds (whether bought or saved yourself), as well as a good opportunity to exchange gardening tips and planting plans.

In preparation for the growing season ahead the seed swap basket will be available inside St Mary’s Church, Flowton from 1st – 10th March inclusive.

There may also be a small selection of plants available with a box for donations.

1. Bring your extra seeds

Swap in date: excess packets, unwanted varieties, self-saved seed, magazine packets, and even partially used packets.

If you don’t have any seeds to swap, there will also be a box for a small donations. All monies will be shared equally between CARE Suffolk and St Mary’s Church in Flowton.

2. Pick your new seeds

Choose seeds from the selection we and others have made available, and use some of the small envelopes also available if you don’t need an entire packet. There will be a few pens for you to copy any notes over on to the envelopes.

Does anyone use 1000 carrot seeds?

3. Grow your new seeds

Enjoy the opportunity to grow a new variety of your favourite, or a new type of plant entirely.

Perhaps even save some of the seed to swap next year!
