People got down and dirty with a seedy event which took place in Boston in February.
Seedy Saturday was staged at Fydell House on the 6th February 2016 and it featured some exotica but was not x-rated.
The totally free event was the second annual Boston in Bloom seed swap and this year it featured some unusual plants favoured by the 13th century Incas, but thought to have been cultivated to be eaten a thousand years before that empire came to prominence in South America.
The Seedy Saturday seed swap at Fydell House offered opportunities to swap seeds and plants, pick up more unusual varieties and receive growing advice from experienced gardeners and Lincolnshire Master Gardeners.
There was a pea and bean corner and free sunflower seeds for junior gardeners.
Food4Life demonstrated practical cooking skills with home-grown produce and visitors enjoyed free samples and parsnip soup with home-made bread and beef and bean Thai curry.
Bells Nursery and Willoughby Road Allotment Association sponsored the event. Proceeds of items for sale went to the Butterfly Hospice.
The town’s other allotment associations were also represented.
