Seed saving and seed exchange

Beacuse I garden with the school, it's good to have lots of seeds for free so that we can experiment, and not be devastated by disasters. Also, in this world of recession and cutbacks, havening an abundance of anything feels great.

And I'm happy to share some of the bounty so I have the following seeds on offer, and happy to trade or send for free withing Europe - we can discuss sending further afield:

Calendula
Tall sunflowers
Dwarf sunflowers
Large pink poppy
snapdragon
Ragged Jack Kale
Stripey french marigold

Leave a comment if you're interested in any of these...

Also, there is a community of people swapping seeds - see Seed Network

This is a great thing for increasing diversity and building community. Well done for organising it!

I am rather interested in that kale you've got there. Do you still have some seeds from that?

Hi Anna,

i'm a newbie to seed saving and exchange, so I have nothing to offer you in terms of seeds (although I'm happy to re-imburse for postage costs), but i was hoping you might be willing to send out some of your dwarf sunflower, and snapdragon seeds to me?

cheers elise
