As part of our aim of encouraging local food production we are holding our annual plant swop stall at the Farmers market this year on
Saturday 14th May 9am – 2pm
This year we are teaming up with the North Pennines AONB and featuring not only the usual edible plants but also those which are attractive to bees, moths, butterflies and other pollinators.
Gardeners – don’t throw away all those surplus tomato seedlings – swop them for another variety or try something completely different ! Please bring any spare veg, fruit or flower seedlings to the stall to swop. Trees and wildflowers also welcome –it’s surprising what turns up !
2016 is United Nations International Year of the Pulse. We are particularly keen on having plants and seeds of these to swap and we will have seeds available.
If you have nothing to swop but want advice and plants to start growing your own – this is the place to come !
