A brand new Seed Library will be coming soon to Bayswater Library launching on Wednesday, 27 July. The Seed Library will be a collection of free seeds available to library members to plant and grow at home. Borrowers are encouraged to harvest seeds from their own gardens to donate back to the collection. The seeds collected will be vegatables, fruits, herbs, flowers and natives. The varieties of seeds available will change throughout the year.
To build our seed collection we are looking to our community to donate seeds harvested from their own gardens. Donations of unused commercial seeds are also welcomed. You can donate seeds in any container as long as it is clean and dry. Or you can collect a donation bag from any City of Bayswater Library. When donating please fill out the Seed Collection form with as much detail as possible.

Seed Saving Tips
• Do not save seeds from plants that are hybrids (look for F1 on the seed packet/plant label).
• If you grow more than one variety of the same type of plant, use methods to prevent cross-pollination.
• Save seeds from your healthiest and strongest plants. This allows for natural selection to ensure your seeds produce healthy crops.
• Grow extra plants for seed saving purposes – many plants will produce viable seeds after the crop is past its picking date e.g. lettuce.
• Ensure your seeds are completely dry before storing/donating them.
• The best plants for beginners to start saving seeds from are: Basil, Beans, Broad Beans, Capsicum, Coriander, Garlic Chives, Lettuce,
Marigold, Nasturtium, Okra, Pea, Sage, Snake Bean, Tomato
