Seed swap at annual gardeners meet in Sylva

A seed swap and plant exchange will be held at the Jackson County Farmers Market in downtown Sylva from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Oct. 2.

Gardeners should bring seed that they have saved from their non-hybrid vegetables or flowers, bulbs for fall planting, as well as perennial plants that need to be divided. Label everything, and in the case of flowers, it is helpful to give the color and height of the parent plant.

If you don’t have any seeds or plants to exchange, you can participate in exchange for a donation to the Farmers Market.
