Secret seed swap

The Secret Seed Swap is a postal seed exchange where participants make a decorative seed packet, fill it with seeds and send it to a mystery recipient for them to grow in their own gardens. We'll then all share pictures of our seed packets and seeds using the hashtag #secretseedswap on twitter and Instagram. It's a great way to make new gardening friends online and grow something that you might not normally grow. 

Last year's seed swap was a big success, with dozens of photos being shared online and lots of people posting beautiful seed packets for others to sow at home. 

One difference this year - A few people who registered last year sadly didn't get into the spirit of it and didn't end up posting a packet, leaving their recipients disappointed. So we are running the 2016 swap with just one change to last year - there is a deadline of 18th March for posting your seeds and anyone who hasn't received a packet by the following week can let us know and we will send you a packet of our own creation. This should ensure that everyone gets a some seeds to grow!

We're looking forward to seeing your creations and watching your seeds grow!
