    Default VSP Chilli, Pepper & Tomato Seed Requests

    THIS SECTION OF THE VSP IS NOW OPEN

    The Virtual Seed Swap is where you can swap seeds you don’t want for ones you do. It's open to everyone who has been a member for 3 months or more, who has made more than 50 posts in the last 3 months and who has a UK return address

    This particular section will be open for swaps between January and 20 March and then 01November - 15 December. It will close for the rest of the year so that I can get on with growing too.

    Instructions:
    Look through the lists of seeds here: VSP Chilli, Pepper & Tomato Seed Lists and decide what you want. Post your request on this thread together with what you plan to send in. I will PM you with my address if the swap is accepted - please read the fine print below.

    Then send your seeds, together with a copy of what you want in return & your Vine name, a self-addressed envelope/sticky label and enough stamps for return postage. No stamps - no seeds.

    Please add a sender’s address on the envelope in case it goes astray in the postal system.

    As a guide for the numbers of seeds expected:
    6-8 Chilli & Pepper seeds
    10 Tomato Seeds

    Please write legibly on each packet:
    • Type
    • Variety
    • No of seeds
    • Your Vine name
    • Sow by dates or date seeds collected
    • Anything else you think is needed; such as 'self saved', ‘from Real Seeds’ etc.

    Please make sure the packets that you send in are properly sealed.

    The fine print:
    A maximum of 20 packets will be sent out at a time. There is no limit on the number of packets you can send in, but it must be at least equal to the number of packets you are requesting. Multiple packs of the same variety will be accepted.

    If there are already many packs of a particular variety in the VSP, it will be marked as FULL and no more of that variety will be accepted until these seeds have been requested. This will prevent a build-up of common varieties that no one wants.

    Default It begins....

    Morning.

    So far i'm in a position to send in:

    Cherokee Purple
    Kenilworth King George
    Brandywine
    Matina
    Orange Banana
    White Cherry
    Alaskan Fancy
    Black Russian

    10 seeds in 7 packets of each of the 8 varieties. (That's how it worked out due to packet availability).

    If you require more than 7 packets of each variety, I will remove a variety or 2, and re-packet.


    So far i'm still compiling my wants.

    Will my donations be acceptable.?

    Hey! First one in

    Varieties are all acceptable. Thank you very much
    If you let me know what you want in return I'll start getting them together.

    I will forward my address this morning.

    Could you please remember to include a stamp to cover return post, a label with your name and address on and ensure the envelope that you use to send the seeds is good enough to use for the return.

    Cheers Scarlet, message received.

    I need to get stamps & padded envelope tomorrow.
    I'll finalise my requests and sent you a list when I've decided.

    I've had to order more seed bags, so in a month or two you could receive more seeds from me.

    Anyhow, be in touch soon, and thanks for running this list.
