Bring your extra seeds packaged in small packets and labeled with the botanical name and/or common name of the plant and exchange for other seeds you need or want.  Leu Gardens’ horticulture staff will check in the seeds and place them in the right category.   The end of summer is a great time to starting thinking about fall planting, so come out to the Seed Swap and start gardening.  Experts will be on hand to answer your questions.
