Free Seeds
« on: February 20, 2017, 16:56 »
Hi,
I have a few unopened packets of veg seeds that were free with gardening mags that I will not use.  It seems a shame to throw them away so if anyone local to me (Markfield, Leicestershire) you are more than welcome to them.

Hi Kaycee  and welcome to the site :)

That's a very nice offer - I'll pop it over to swap shop and also add you to our personal mail system.  That way forum members can email you and you them so you can exchange contact details privately  :)

Thank you very much  Do you want my address or the the schools, I'll ask a mod to let me personal message you, you need a few more posts to allow it.

Thank you to Kaycee, the seeds have arrived today so will be off to school in the next few days, I'm sure the children will be excited to grow strawberries, anyone know how long before seed sown plants produce fruit?

Thanks Val, I thought it might be years & wondered how that might pan out in a school!
