Thursday was cloudy with drizzle but we headed off with our neighbours to Conwy where the sun was shining for the seed fair. It’s organised by Conwy Beekeepers and takes over much of the town centre.
What’s really brilliant about it is that they don’t charge for stalls, although a donation is much appreciated, so a lot of the stands are individuals selling home grown plants rather than just a few commercial stalls.
It’s not just seeds and plants, there are stalls with honey and hive products, local crafts, home produce such as jams, pickles and cakes. The quality of the produce was first rate and most of the plants were top-quality at affordable prices.
There was a stand selling over 60 varieties of seed potatoes as well as seeds which took my interest. I’ll gloss over finding a stall selling Turkish delight. Val doesn’t believe it’s a slimming product 🙂
I came across Ian Sturrock showing his Welsh fruit trees. I’ve got to pop over and get some from him soon – they’re in pots so no rush. As well as the soft fruits we want some damsons, plums and cherries. We didn’t chat for long as I didn’t want to get in-between him and the paying customers. A few photos below to give you a flavour of the day.
