Rossland looks to growing season with Seedy Sunday

The annual Seedy Sunday seed exchange was back again in Rossland last weekend.



Rossland’s gardening community had an opportunity this weekend to purchase some heritage and rare variety seeds, as the annual Seedy Sunday seed exchange was back again.

Rossland Real Food puts on the event, inviting local growers to come out and sell their seeds.

It was also an opportunity to support the Rossland Secondary School interacts club, was it was having a bake sale fundraiser as well.

The event itself was held at the RSS library.

This year, local seed vendors included the Seed Basket, Cherry Meadows Farm, Mountain Seed Co., and Stellar Seeds.

The vendors had a wide variety of flower, vegetable and fruit seeds, including heirloom varieties, many of which do well in the short growing season that comes with being in the mountains.

Seeds that pertain to Rossland’s climate can also have much better yields and

Patrick Boundry, from Cherry Meadows Farm, said they had been having success selling seeds.

Boundry’s farm specialies in cherries, and they hope to get into the cherry wine business.

Stellar Seeds operates out of Johnson’s Landing. Lindsay Snyder has worked for Stellar for the past two years. She noted that they carry many rare seeds of heirloom varieties, of which they had sold many packets.
