This message arrived from Lizzy Shepherd of Gone to Seed. I know many plotters visited and enjoyed the Tarland event last year.
I hope you are busy saving seed to share with your friends and to bring along to the 2018 Seed Swap and Potato Day being held in Tarland on Saturday 24th February.
So far I have saved carrot, mangetout, cutting celery and flat leaf parsley seed; hopefully, the leek seed will have time to fully ripen…not sure yet. The photo shows how attractive the carrot and leek seed heads look, it’s worth growing them just for that!
If you would like to get hold of some of the seed envelopes now, please drop me a line and I will try and see if we can get them to you. They will be available in a few locations early next year as well, or just bring your seed along on the day and put them into envelopes there.
In the meantime, there are some really useful clips below on how to go about saving seed and isolation techniques etc:
I hope that you find these useful. We will be running another seed saving workshop at the seed swap and potato day in 2018, so why not come along to that session and learn more.
