Get down and dirty with the return of a seedy event

The green fingers of Boston in Bloom are returning to present their annual Seedy Saturday on February 24 between 11am and 3pm.

The totally free event will be the fourth annual Boston in Bloom seed swap and is known for featuring unusual plants, along with being a fantastic chance for anyone to gain advice and expand their knowledge from long-term horticulturalists.

Chairman of Boston in Bloom, Alison Fairman commented "The seed swap is always a delightful event to hold, with experienced and novice gardeners and green fingered enthusiasts coming together to share knowledge, and exchange seeds which they'd like to either grow for the first time or have excess of."

This year's event is being held at Boston's historic White Hart Hotel, a continued supporter of Boston in Bloom. Hotel Manager, Neil Williams said: "We are delighted to host the forthcoming Seed Swap at the White Hart and are very proud to continue our partnership with Boston in Bloom. This event is a great initiative which we hope will promote and develop relationships within the community, bringing people together to exchange not only seeds but ideas as well."

Special thanks go to The Coaching Inn Group and Willoughby Road Allotment Association, who have kindly sponsored the event, of which, all donations received will go to The Butterfly Hospice Trust.
