Growing our own vegetables relies on a good source of veg seeds and this can be a hefty annual expense. If we learn to save some of our own seeds we not only save money but over time we actually nurture varieties that do especially well on our own plots. Sourcing seeds locally is also a great way to fast track this so visiting seed swap events in your local area during late winter and early spring is a great way to find suitable varieties including some unusual and heritage varieties that need to be kept going by growing. Seed swap events also bring together fellow gardeners who not only swap seeds but ideas and growing information.
