PGG Seed Exchange service

 

Every autumn, PGG members are invited to collect seed of plants in their gardens, and send it to the seed exchange. In January, a list of seed for exchange is sent out to members, who can then request seeds from the list. Those donating seed can request up to 20 packets of free seed, whilst all other members can reuest up to 5 packets of seed.

There has been a diverse range of seed offered over the years but there is always room for more, so if you have something special in your garden that you think others would like then please do send in some seed. Please clean the seed as much as possible and label the envelope clearly, and if you have any helpful germination tips then add those too. All seeds are welcome, from annuals and perennials to shrubs and vegetables.

Professional Gardeners’ Guild Seed List 2012

The list for January 2012 is reproduced below for information…

Thank you to all those who have contributed to this bumper selection of seed. I hope you find my catagorisation helpful.

Please send your requests to me by 1st March, including a jiffy bag with a large letter stamp. Tracy Lean, 4 Madmarston View, Green Lane, Swalcliffe, Oxfordshire OX15 5EQ seeds@pgg.org.uk.  Thank you to all those who have contributed to this year’s seeds. Those who have donated seed can request up to 20 different packets, other members may request 5 packets.

*Jimmy Reid at Logan supplied the Monkey Puzzle seeds.
After seeing Hugh Fearnley-Wittingstall eat them on his Veg TV programme I was inspired to try a few.
Jimmy has a lot more, so if you would like a larger quantity for sowing or eating contact him; details in the Members Handbook.
