National Seed Swap Day is celebrated on the last Saturday in January, to honor the great U.S. tradition of swapping seeds with neighbors. At seed swaps, gardeners can share seeds they've saved from their own plants, excess seeds from their stash, or even seeds from another region. It's a chance for gardeners to learn more about native plants and those that are well adapted to the local growing area. You can also make connections with other plant lovers.
Make sure you include enough seeds in each packet to ensure a decent harvest. A dozen tomato or pepper seeds is more than enough, but for a crop like corn or beans, it makes more sense to include at least 20.
