Seedy Sunday 12 March 2017
2-4pm in the Memorial Hall, Downton, SP5 3PD
Seedy Sunday is now well established in Downton as the event promoting sustainable growing. It has something for all gardeners and veg & fruit growers, whether experienced or novice. And if you are considering planting a few vegetables this year for the first time, there will be experienced people around at Seedy Sunday to give ideas on how to start – you can pick their brains!
At the heart of Seedy Sunday is the Seed & Plant Swap. If you have spare seeds (veg or flowers), either ones you’ve collected yourself or spare commercial ones, please bring them to swap for others. Alternatively just come and pick the seeds you’d like for a donation. Also present will be ‘More Veg’, who sell seeds in small quantities. You can find out about topics such as composting, keeping pests under control and gardening for wildlife. Bring your garden tools to be sharpened by the charity ‘Tools for Self Reliance’ whilst you wander round the many and varied stalls. All children will receive a vegetable starter kit and if you have any unwanted garden items, tools or books (but no small plastic pots please) do bring them along for the Recycling Table.
Items on sale include nest boxes, vegetable seeds, wildflower seeds, pea and bean sticks, planters, lavender and other gifts.
And of course tea, coffee and homemade cakes will be available.
