7:30 PM Seed Swap 

The Nashua Public Library’s annual seed swap, coordinated by the Nashua Garden Club, will be held Thursday February 27th at the library located at 2 Court Street, Nashua NH. Activities will begin at 6:30 PM with a lecture on Gardening in Small Spaces by Jodie Gilson of Gilson Greenhouses. She will include a demonstration on container, raised-bed, vertical, and row-covering gardening. Learn what to consider when selecting plants and seeds, how and when to start seeds and root cuttings for your garden type as well as seed-saving techniques to get a jump on next year’s garden or to trade with friends.

The annual seed swap will follow and begin at approximately 7:30. If you have seeds, you are invited to bring them, whether you saved or purchased them. Bring each variety in its own jar or bag, labeled with its name and growing instructions. If you don’t have seeds to share, come anyway.  Take some home and you can share next year.
