Southampton Seed Swap is a community seed swapping, gardening and environmental living event which happens every year in Southampton, Hampshire.

The next one will be on Saturday 25th & Sunday 26th February 2017, 11am – 4pm both days.

Ziggy and Keith give advice and drink tea at the seed swap table.

Inspired by Seedy Sunday in Brighton, has been running since 2006 every February. 

The swap gives growers can choose seeds from dozens of traditional varieties of garden vegetables in return for a donation or in exchange for seed they have saved.

It’s also a great place to meet likeminded people, from newbie gardeners to people who have been giving away free courgettes by the tonne for years!

The seed swap is organised by Ziggy Woodward of The Art House Southampton.

...oh look, more seeds :)Open-pollinated, ‘heritage’ varieties of seeds are often no longer commercially available, but have adapted naturally to local growing conditions.  They also make for unusual, yummy and colourful additions to your garden and table!
