Gardening enthusiasts visited Laxey Sailing Club on Sunday to swap seeds in the third annual event of its kind.

The brainchild of Tanya Highet, secretary of the Laxey and Lonan Allotment Association, the seed swap welcomes gardeners from across the Island to swap seeds and share tips.

Tanya said: 'It's a simple idea but one that has been so successful that enthusiasts flock each year to try and find that special addition that their garden, allotment, greenhouse, poly tunnel or humble window box has been lacking. This year, any items left at the end of the swap will be donated to the Children's Centre community farm for use in their growing projects with children, young people and families.'
