I have heard stories about people swapping suspect little packages in brown paper bags with scribbles written on the bag - sounds very intriguing!
I am also a complete fanatic about growing heritage, heirloom and saved seed and keeping old varieties alive - in fact keeping a massive gene pool of a variety of edibles alive. Its exciting - there's lots out there we can grow. Wouldn't it be fantastic to save a variety from complete extinction? Well it floats my boat anyway!
So much so that I am a very keen member of Garden Organic's Heritage Seed Library
Last summer, I was saving seed for the first time and have a selection of chilli seeds, tomato seeds and gem squash to share. I've bagged all my seeds ready for the big swap on Sunday.
Got any tips for a newbie to the Seedy Sunday experience?
