A FAIR EX­CHANGE

Country Living (UK) - - Gardening -

You’ll al­most al­ways end up with more seed than you can pos­si­bly use your­self, so you can have the plea­sure of shar­ing the bounty of your gar­den with friends or take part in one of the many seed-ex­change schemes that op­er­ate around the coun­try. Each Fe­bru­ary, at Brighton’s Seedy Sun­day (seedy­sun­day.org) – the UK’S largest and long­est-run­ning com­mu­nity seed-swap event – more than 10,000 pack­ets of seeds ex­change hands. The Hardy Plant So­ci­ety (hardy-plant.org.uk), The Cot­tage Gar­den So­ci­ety (the­cot­tage­gar­denso­ci­ety.org.uk) and Gar­den Or­ganic (gar­de­nor­ganic.org.uk) all run ex­change/ dis­tri­bu­tion schemes for their mem­bers, where seeds of un­com­mon plants are par­tic­u­larly wel­come.
