    Yep. The truss that those seeds came from was over 1 meter wide. It was crazy. Never seen anything like it before

    I'll be sowing some of those seeds this weekend ����

    • Just choosing varieties from the seed circle parcel to grow this season and wondered if any might lend themselves to ‘sun’ drying? Urban’s mega truss sounds possible but open to ideas.

      I’m definitely growing Blush and Nectar Rose for salads etc. Will hope for your tomato guru advice

      • Very late I know - but excited about growing even more of everything in the lockdown.
        (Keeps me off the streets!!)
        Had some seed from Elfeda labelled Guntur India.
        Some of these seeds are bright red.
        Anyone know anything about them?
        Just feel I ought to try sowing some of the red ones to see what comes up.

        • I have a bag of those Guntur seeds and know absolutely nothing about them either! I did message Elfeda about 6 months ago to ask if they were hybrids but didn't get a reply. The red ones I presume are treated seed.

          • I think you’re right TMTT - I sowed a few of the red ones on the surface of a bit of kitchen roll and they have stained the paper pinkish, and are now just the same colour as the other ones in the bag.
            Shame - I was imagining some sort of deep, deep, vibrant red tomatoes where even the seeds were bright red!!
            Dimwit that I am!

                Will do - hope they are interesting

                • Don’t think anything is going to happen with these, TMTT!
                  As I had such a big packet I sowed about 30 red ones and about 30 “normal” coloured ones on kitchen roll.
                  no sign of life at all. Shame, was hoping for something different!

                  • I've sown 20 odd on kitchen roll to see if mine are viable.

                    • Any sign of growth yet? I’ve chucked mine!

                      • I've got 3 non-red seeds germinating so far. Nothing from the reds. Would you like me to send you the rest of the packet so you can have another go?

                        Comment


                        • Well done on getting some to germinate.
                          Three out of how many germinated?
                          Of the other seeds I sowed from the seed circle I had getting on for a hundred percent germination. It was just these that refused to budge!
                          i won’t take you up on your kind offer to send me some seeds (thank you!) as I’ve still got a large packet of them left (I only threw away the dish of non germinating ones) so I may give it another go next year.
                          Not going to bother with any more this year.
                          cheers!

                          • Now 4 have germinated, out of 20 or so, but still nothing from the reds. I think there's probably more than 1 variety in this packet with the seeds being so different in size.

                              I'm growing Gardener's Delight and Urban's Delight side by side. No megatruss on Urban's - shame. Anybody else got success?

                              • Growing 2 plants of Urban Delight here in the greenhouse.
                                They look no different to Gardeners Delight.

                                And when your back stops aching,
                                And your hands begin to harden.
                                You will find yourself a partner,
                                In the glory of the garden.
