  • Looking for sites that offer free seeds, trees, etc advice wanted to please.

    Our Eleanor has just started a new daycare and will be there about 20-25 hours a week, she is blending in well and the place is nice but when I looked outside there is nothing there to offer her. There was a bit bamboo in the corner and the rest is grass.
    So I have offered to to their garden free, I want to turn it into a edible garden with flowers, ready to pick veg and maybe a tree. I've got most of the veg myself but looking for places that will help fund them also. Does anyone know of any sites or numbers I can go begging to

    please add as many as you can, might help others to.
    Thanks guys xx

    Here is one I have applied to already

            Brogdale do a pledge a tree scheme, it might be worth contacting them to see if they could add you as a cause to receive a tree.

            Pledge a tree

            It is worth speaking to most of the seed companies. I done it to try and get raffle prizes and I had one company send 5 packs of seeds and another one that sent 10 packs of seed. There are a lot that say no as they get so many requests but they are very kind and understanding. Even supermarkets are worth asking as they allow so much for helping local charities and worthy causes (although they usually do gift vouchers) but if they are doing seasonal goods...

            Good luck

                I can send you some of the spare veg seeds from the VSP - though some may be out of date.

                  Do it all have a garden force that will support local schools - not sure about private nurseries but they might give you stuff.

                        FoodForestation will send you some free seeds for children/schools etc if you pay the postage (1). My free seeds were sunflowers, courgettes and borage. They also sell reasonably priced and unusual seeds.
