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
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

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.
