Problems finding seeds this Spring – Thoughts of a Virtual Seed Swap

We have heard from several members that they have had difficulty in obtaining vegetable seeds this season – with many firms quoting long lead times for delivery or even suspending trading (e.g. our own link with Kings Seeds).

I wondered whether those of us with more seeds than we need could find a way to share with those who missed out?  Would members be interested in this if we were to set up a blog on our website where people could offer or request?  Obviously we can’t organise a traditional seed swap due to social distancing, but two individuals could negotiate a swap or exchange and find a way of safely handing the seeds over …

Would this be useful to members? Please let us know what you think using the Secretary’s email.
