Our recent blogging about saving seeds inspired me to write this morning’s article.
For those of you interested in trading seeds, the first ever Fall NRV Seed and Plant Exchange is being held tomorrow, September 23, at the Christiansburg Library.
It’s starts at 2:00 pm and they let you take as many plants, roots or seed packets as you bring. So, if you bring ten plants, you go home with ten plants. They caution you to be on time, because the picking goes fast.
You can bring pretty much anything – seeds, flowers, trees, herbs, bushes, and houseplants. Their recommendation is to bring seeds in envelopes, and plants or trees either potted or secured in plastic bags.
For those of you on this blog that are interested in exchanging seeds or seedlings, feel free to post your wants or offerings here. I can’t facilitate an exchange, but you’re welcome to get in touch via personal emails to make the exchange happen.
