Welcome spring at Victoria Seedy Saturday!

Shop for locally grown, organic seed from over a dozen of the islands’ finest seed producers. You’ll also find an abundance of other delightful and delectable things to grow from tubers, corms, bulbs, whips, and starts, all sold by knowledgeable local growers.

You’ll also find things that will help you grow: tools, soil amendments, and buckets of new ideas. Bring your gardening problems and mystery plants to the Master Gardeners for wise advice. Talk to the vendors, because the people selling those plants and seeds are the people who grew them: they’re an excellent source of advice about growing your new acquisitions in our climate. Check out the many local garden societies, volunteer opportunities, and educational programs available to Victoria gardeners.

And the talks! Don’t forget the talks: they’re many people’s favourite part. We run a full speakers’ program all day, with all talks included in the cost of admission. Hear some of the islands’ finest and most innovative growers talk about everything from basic techniques for beginners to more specialized topics for the advanced class.

The ever-popular seed exchange is Seedy Saturday’s heart. Trade extra saved seeds from your garden for something you’ve never tried before. A few years ago we added a book exchange, which works on the same principle: bring in garden books you’ve outgrown and trade them for ones that suit your current interests.

You can stay all day (lots of people do), listening to talks and browsing the exhibits. We’ve got the Seedy Cafe on site to keep you going, an ATM in case you suddenly spot a must-have fruit tree, and a kids’ activity area. Yes, bring the kids – you can’t train up young gardeners too soon, so anyone under 16 gets in free. Want to come for free? Consider volunteering!
