The Department of Agriculture is offering a limited stock of free cabbage, cucumber, bok choy (Chinese cabbage), cauliflower, broccoli and other seedlings to the public.

According to a press release, the initiative seeks to stimulate interest among backyard gardeners in growing quality produce in the hope it will lead to more entries and participation in the Cayman Islands Agriculture Society’s show next year.

Twelve types of vegetable seedlings are available. They may be collected from the Department of Agriculture Nursery, 181 Lottery Road, Lower Valley, as long as supplies last.
