    Default Soft Fruit Circle 2017

    Following on from the successful soft fruit circle ran by Norfolkgrey I thought it might be good to try one again this year.

    At this point I'm just seeing if enough people would be interested for it to be viable but if you have an idea of what you may want to submit that's great.

    Obviously a lot can change between now and next March so if you find you wont be participating or find you would like to join at the last minute that's fine.

    Anyone is welcome to join, as long as you meet the vine rules by March time.
    ***IMPORTANT*** Seed/Plant Swap Rules and General Guidance

    As with last year ideally two varieties of fruit would be good but one is fine as long as there is enough for everyone in the circle (based on this years probably 4-10) The aim is to swap everything by March 2018.

    As Norfolkgrey said last year I haven't ran anything like this before so please feel free to make suggestions.

    There seems to be some interest in this. Ive combined the replies from the now closed Soft Fruit Circle 2016 comments and the ones on this thread:

    GardenGayle - Whitecurrants, Loganberries, Japanese Wineberries (possibly)
    Elfeda - All Gold Raspberries
    Vixylix - Depends how the season goes
    NickG - Raspberries (Joan J, Ruby, Buckingham) blackberry Reuben
    Flynch - Raspberries, Tayberries, Blackberry, blackcurran and gooseberries
    Maverick451 - Dwarf Rasperries, Snow White Strawberries
    Veggiechicken - Jostaberries (possibly)

    Obviously this all depends on how life and gardening goes over the next year. Anyone else who would like to join is welcome

    Well done, GG, for volunteering to run this next year.
    I may join in with some more jostaberries.

    I "donated" my cuttings this year, as I didn't need anything in return. Hope the worcesterberries weren't too aggressive when you unpacked them!
    Look on the bright side

    They're good for keeping intruders out of the garden

    There seems to be some interest in running the circle again so assuming theres still a few interested coming up March 2018 there should be some nice packages again
