    Default The Tomato Seed Circle 2017

    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 6-8 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!


    Tips here for seed saving : Seed Saving

    1. Jack - Ruby tomato, Pink Bulgarian, Rose de Berne ( real seeds)
    2. VC - something black icicle shaped
    3. Cadalot
    4. Norfolk Grey - Giallo D'Inverno, Bananalegs, Moonglow
    5. HappyHumph - Latah, Amish Paste
    6. Thelma -
    7. Sea Sprout -
    8. Ms T - Orange Banana, Purple Ukraine
    9. JJ -
    10. Deano -
    11. Trip -
    12. Scarlet -
    13. Mark P - Japanese Black Trifele, Green Grapes and Ananas Noire
    14. MollieDollie -

    OK I'm in but have not decided what to grow yet apart from Rapunzel which I think is an F1. This year I shall be growing from F3 generation crimson crush seeds, and as far as I can see the line I'm saving and growing is giving me tomatoes very much like the original. I will be saving Rapunzel seeds as well.
