I’ve been getting messages from people asking when the next Seed & Plant Share will be – I’ve also been adding interested parties to the event’s mailing list. I’m pleased to say that we’ve now organised it for Sunday, March 16th from 1-4pm at the Laxey Sailing Club. This free event is open to the public and is an opportunity to pick up needed seeds and plants and to give unwanted ones new homes!

This is the fifth year we’ve hosted this event and more and more people are finding that it’s an economical and fun way to get new seeds. You can pay a fortune to seed catalogues and gardening centres and often you don’t always use all the seeds in a single packet. Though the expiration dates for them are often misleading (they can most of the time germinate years after that date) you may want to rehome them anyway. That’s where our event comes in.

How it works…

– Entrance is FREE.
– Organise your seeds + plants into areas provided.
– Look at what’s already there and take what you need.
– If you didn’t bring in any seeds to share, there’s a donation box.
– A raffle will be held to cover costs. Donations of raffle prizes are very much welcome!
– Get yourself a refreshment from the cakes or drinks area and come back for another browse when new items have been added.
– Invite your green fingered friends to come too! Here’s the event information on Facebook.

The event is hosted by the Laxey & Lonan Allotment Association with special help from the Douglas Allotment. It is being held not-for-profit and as a service to the growers and hobby gardeners of the Isle of Man. Everyone is welcome!
