Seedy Sunday in Saint Andrews February 25th at the Anglican Hall on King Street

The 15th annual St. Andrews Seedy Sunday Seed Exchange will take place on Sunday, February 25th, from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Anglican Parish Hall, 75 King St. in Saint Andrews. Join your fellow plant and garden lovers at this year's Seedy Sunday. There is no admission charge and no charge for the seeds.

There will be a brief presentation at 2 p.m. on hybrid vs. open-pollinated seed, as well as information on the seed life of seeds, the seed library at Ross Memorial Library, and joining the local garden club. Seed trading will run until 4 p.m. 

You don't have to bring seeds, but you are encouraged to bring extra seeds of some of your favourite varieties. Seeds should be viable and no more than a few years old. Mark them with the name of the crop and the specific variety. Also note the year they were collected or purchased if you know that. Bring samples of your favourite seed catalogs along too to help you inform other gardeners about promising northern-adapted varieties that have done well in your garden. 

There are always plenty of free seeds for folks to take home. It's never too early to start planning your garden. Think spring!

For more information, call Lee Ann or Larry at 506-529-4982, or Mike at 506-529-3629.
