Don’t miss the annual seed swap


The second annual Boston in Bloom seed swap takes place on Saturday.

The seed swap at Fydell House, from 11am-3pm, will offer opportunities to swap seeds and plants, pick up more unusual varieties and receive growing advice from experienced gardeners and Lincolnshire master gardeners.

You don’t have to bring seeds to swap, but can make a donation to get a packet.

There will be a pea and bean corner and free sunflower seeds for junior gardeners.

Food4Life will demonstrate practical cooking skills with home-grown produce, and visitors will be able to enjoy free samples of parsnip soup with home-made bread and beef and bean Thai curry.

Bells Nursery and Willoughby Road Allotment Association are sponsoring the event. There will be items for sale and proceeds will go to the Butterfly Hospice.
