Welcome to Seed Swaps

Swapping seed is fun. It doesn't have to be bought seed, you can also swap saved seed too. Just be clear which type you are offering. Also please don't send seed outside the EU as this is against DEFRA guidelines. Have fun!

Will have loads of calendula seeds if anyone interested, but am thinking of putting them in my surplus veg basket by the garden gate too.

Hi. Anyone interested in swapping some saved dill, fennel or sunflower seeds?
Comment by Dim Sum Gardener on September 28, 2010 at 14:52
These will soon be available from the garden: tomatoes (banana legs, cream sausage and grosse lisse), French beans (trail of tears, cosse violette, cupidon) and sunflowers (Australian pollen-less, Russian mammoth). I'm looking for squashes (banana, buttercup, acorn, delicata, spaghetti, sweet dumpling, tromboncino, yellow/golden ball), tomatoes (gardener's delight, any yellow cherry/pear, purple calabash, zapotec, any black plum) or tomato centiflor. Open to other options!

Hi, I have loads of pot marigold seeds, happy to send to anyone who wants some until I run out!

Jan just read your post and was wondering how you got on with your garden gate basket?  Do you have plenty of passers by?  Id thought about having something like this to sell off surplus veg/seed and use the money for next years seeds or something garden orientated (trying to make it pay for itself!!).

Hi debi

The garden gate basket worked really well, at the end of the day, it was all gone-including overgrown courgettes! Noticed that other people in the village started doing it with surplus plums, apples etc, also got requests from people too, eg got any more of those nice kohl rabi? So met some new people too.

Hi swappers, I'd like to try growing cavolo nero, has anyone got a small amount of seeds to spare? Would be happy to swap with some PSB seeds as I have too many.

Comment by Zoe on May 6, 2011 at 11:16
Hi Una. Happy to swap a couple of Cavelo Nero, but I can't get PSB to work so if you have a few yellow courgette seeds going spare that would work as I forgot to buy any yellow this year.

Hi Zoe, it's a deal! :) Had a quick look and hadn't realised my yellow courgette Floridor F1 (a round variety) seeds need to be sown this year, so I'd be very happy to swap so that they don't got
Comment by Zoe on May 6, 2011 at 11:30
Oh a round yellow courgette that sounds perfect.  I'll email you my address.
