Why Seed Swaps?
By saving and swapping seeds gardeners help to keep alive the genetic diversity of flowers, herbs and vegetables. They also enjoy the adventure of growing something unusual.
Seed Swaps also can offer varieties that do well in the local environment.
Commercial seed companies must pay a fee to register each seed variety that they sell. Understandably, they choose to sell the seeds that will be most profitable. It is illegal to sell seeds that are not registered on the European or National Seed Lists.
It is also illegal for Seed Swaps to sell seeds as they are not registered, which is why we ask for donations for packets of seeds.
Organised Seed Swaps began in Canada in the 1980s, but gardeners have been swapping seeds informally for centuries.
