I did not offer the seeds with the expectation that I was getting anything in return so it was a lovely to receive things in return.
I received seeds and also some lovely seed envelopes from the lovely Patricia.
Swapping seeds with friends and family is such a practical thing to do since most seeds do not germinate as well once they are a year or so old and there are usually more in a packet than you need. Also if you choose to save you own seeds you are likely to end up with enough to supply a commercial market garden so why not share them around.
If you are new to seed saving or would like more information Liz from 8 Acres provided so useful links in this post.
