Sydenham Gardeners Swapfest 2014

Sydenham Swapfest 2014

Save seed and take cuttings from your favourite flowers and vegetables for a fun event at Sydenham Botanic Park on March 16.

The Swapfest, from 1-4pm, will be a chance to trade seeds, plants and inspiration with like-minded gardeners – whether you swap, give away or sell is up to you.

It’s a chance for people gardening on a budget to increase their range and for people with old favourites to share seed, plants and knowledge.

Seed of heritage plant varieties are often passed down through families – here’s an opportunity to share it more widely and make sure it isn’t lost.

If possible, plants and seeds should be named and packaged to be taken away.

Bring your own table and gazebo/sun umbrella. Having a stand will cost a gold coin donation, the money going to the botanic park project. Nothing to swap? You’re still very welcome!

For more information phone: (07) 577 6676 (evenings) or email:
