Kenilworth Potato Day and Seed Swap
KSCC Kenilworth - map and directions
Our popular Potato Day event is on Saturday 3rd February 2018, 10am - 2pm. This year we are extending the Garden Vegetable Seed Swap which will appeal to gardeners and allotmenteers who are not potato growers.
The venue is in the centre of town at Kenilworth Senior Citizens Club, Abbey End Car Park, CV8 1QJ. Organically grown seed tubers will be on sale and vegetable seeds can be swapped for free or extra packets will be available for a 50p donation. See below for more information about saved seeds.
SAVING YOUR SEEDS
Please package seeds into small envelopes or packets and label with the name of the plant and variety if known. Flower and vegetable seeds accepted, trees and shrubs too, but please no curcubits (squash, pumpkins, courgettes etc) as they hybridise too readily. For the creative amongst you, have a look on Pinterest for seed packet designs - the origami ones are gorgeous! Real Seeds have some detailed seed saving instructions here, but essentially - collect the seed, dry it if necessary, pack it. Happy Seed Saving!
