Get ready for spring gardening at the Library! Gardeners of all abilities are invited to bring seeds to share and discover new varieties to grow from 2 pm to 3:30 pm Sunday, March 26 at The West Seattle (Admiral) Branch Library. Join other gardeners to share seeds at the third annual seed swap. Come even if you just want to get started in the garden and need some inspiration and a few seed varieties to start. Bring as much information as you have about your seeds, such as variety, growth habit and days to maturity. Please – no hybrid seeds, old seeds or GMO seeds.
Library events are free and everyone is welcome to the seed swap—young and old, new or experienced gardeners. Registration is not required. Some parking spaces are available behind the branch. Street parking is free and available near the branch.
Gardeners who are sharing seeds should arrive by 2 pm to set them out, and can expect to exchange about as many seed packs as they bring. Seeds should be accompanied by as much information as possible, such as variety, growth habit and days to maturity. Participants are asked not to bring hybrid seeds, GMO seeds or old seeds (aged four years or more). Seed packs available for beginning gardeners, and the Library will have a variety of gardening books available for check-out.
