Seed swappers

In this group, you can list the seeds you are willing to share when you can't make it to the Garden visits. Anybody who wishes to get seeds can become friends with the donor and send a message to get their postal address. You then send your own self-addressed and stamped envelope and seed packaging to the donor for them to return by post. Hope this makes sense :-)See More
