Seedy Saturdays

It is no secret that Seedy Saturday is by far my very favourite gardening event of the year. It’s a great way to trade and purchase local, organic and heirloom seeds and support small gardening and seed suppliers. It is also a turning point in moving forward from out of winter and starting to think about how much ass your garden is going to kick over the coming year!

Seedy Saturday events are starting to pop up across Canada and it seems to be spreading and growing every year. In fact some cities have already had their’s this year!

  1. Here in Victoria, aka The Garden City, it was Saturday February 17, 2007… the 14th annual Seed and Garden Show. Oh to my delight… spring is near! (:
    I missed it this year… I was really looking forward to listening to Des Kennedy about organic gardening. Nonetheless, it was hosted by my beloved James Bay Market Society (which is always a joy on Saturday mornings at the corner of Superior and Menzies) so I can get the inside scoop anyways!

    Qualicum Beach had an amazing get together this year… lots of homegrown talent up yonder!

    Happy Blooming… !

  2. Here in little ol’ Lunenburg Nova Scotia, we are having our first Seedy Saturday on March 24. A bit late since I have already begun the seed trays but I am looking forward to it. Can anyone offer tips on how it all plays out? How many seeds to give out in one packet? What do you usually put them in? Thanks.
