    Default Tomato Seed Circle 2016

    C'mon, you know you want to join there's nothing better than a parcel through the door around Christmas time full of seeds there's no better present. Everyone welcome.

    Save 2 varieties of tomatoes (no F1's) with 4-6 seeds per pack. Last year we had to save 12 packs of each variety.

    No pressure, register your interest - and the tomatoes you fancy saving if you know what you are going to grow

    #things don't often go to plan while growing so you can change your mind on what varieties you are saving. Remember there's loads of seeds in a cherry Tom, so you only have to save one or two but you do have to label them!

    Yeah I am up for it,
    I know for sure i am in for Gold rush currant, i have just saved 1000s and have been isolated so 100% have not been crossed, as i know currant tomatoes are a little harder.

    I can do 100s and 1000s and so many others

    I grow 70% for us and 30% for the snails, then the neighbours eats them

    I ordered very naughtly the other day lots which only have a few seeds per packets are none Fs so will hopefully get some of those, like indigo rose, indigo blue berries, artisan purple, the list goes on and on but who knows what will fail, i had a bad year last year, due to my own stupid mistakes

    I'd like to take part.

    As an opening gambit I'll propose to save Gartenperle and Chocolate Cherry. Hopefully things will go to plan.
