SVP Eco Shop

 

Do you have any spare or unwanted seedlings? Give them a good home through the Stroud Valleys Project’s seedling swap/sale. Bring along any seedlings that you have spare and exchange them for others. Both vegetable and flower varieties welcome.

Even if you don’t have any seedlings to swap, you can still take some for a donation. It’s a great way to meet other gardeners and to share advice and knowledge.
