It must be a sign that folks in the County are tired of winter and itching to get their hands dirty and digging in the garden – the Picton Seedy Saturday was packed right from the get go. Dozens of vendors were there selling seeds and other garden related do-dads; local horticulture related societies were there providing information; presentations were made and everyone, I’m sure, left the school gym feeling inspired, loaded with seeds and making plans for spring planting. Next seedy stop for me will be March 24 at the Quinte West Seedy Saturday in Trenton.
The busiest spot was the seed exchange tables:
Fuller Native Plant Nursery was there – I’ve written about this great Belleville nursery before; it’s where I purchased my first Echinacea pallida and Silphium perfoliatum seeds two years ago.
There were lots and lots of heritage, hard to find and unusual seeds available, and a number of booths with seed and gardening related stuff.
