Members’ lecture meeting. Guests are welcome to attend up to two meetings before becoming members.

Followed by Seedling Swap

Our annual Seedling Swap has been a fixed event in our calendar for several years now and is eagerly awaited by many. It is a practical and fun way of sharing excess seedlings with other members and we really want to encourage everyone to take part by growing some seeds. If you haven’t participated before, here’s the lowdown on how it works:

  • Sow your seeds in the normal way, and when you have pricked out what you need, bring any surplus seedlings to the meeting with a clear label.
  • Help yourself to empty plastic cups, select the seedlings you fancy, and using the available knives, forks and spoons, carefully lift seedlings out of their containers, and into their temporary new home and label.
  • We will supply plastic cups, spare compost, blank labels and pencils. There will be a small charge of just 10p per forkful to cover costs, with any surplus going to Kent Group funds.

As usual at our lecture meetings there will also be:

Plant display – Plant sale – Seed exchange – Book sale – Raffle – Teas
