Seedling Swap

Place:  Outside the Association shop on the Scarcroft Site
Time:  11.30-1pm. (not 11 o'clock start as it said on the first e-mail)
Date:  Sunday 9th May 2010

How to do it:
  • bring along any spare seedlings you have, with full name (species and variety - i.e. tomato (cordon): moneymaker or pumpkin: jack frost ), and perhaps even a picture from the seed catalogue
  • you can make labels by cutting up yoghurt pots - but a stock of labels will be provided too
  • use clean pots so diseases aren't passed on
  • make sure seedlings are hardened off ready for transplantation (so give yourself at least a few days to get them ready)
  • be on hand, if you can, to swap information too, about why you grow this variety, and any other cultural tips you can pass on to your swap-friends
Don't worry if you don't have any seedlings to swap.  If you've nothing to swap, come along anyway and make a donation (whatever you think appropriate) for seedlings you want.  All proceeds will go to the Association.

This is the first time we have tried this event so please support it and come along.

Laura Potts and Linda James will be on hand to help out.
