        Yay!! Thank you both.

        I love running it JJ. We get plenty of seed that's guaranteed to be fresh and can try loads of new varieties without spending a fortune.

              I'll probably grow that Thompson's Seedless Grape too but I'll let Chrissy save those.
              I will providing there not completely seedless then itíll be impossible hahaha

                  I'll join too if you don't mind, mine will be Black varieties again, probably Brads Black Heart and Piglet Willies French Black. Maybe others, don't know yet

                  P/S - sorry about the last time, I totally messed them up and mixed them up, so I had to grow them last year to sort out what was what....

                            Thinking of saving some of my more interesting varieties like Pink Berkeley Tie Dye, Cosmonaut Volkov, Olena Ukrainian, Dwarf Tasmanian Chocolate and Dwarf Rosella Purple. Am I better off sending them into the VSP if I don't want lots of seed in return (due to space constraints, not lack of interest!)?

                              We don't seem to get much interest in the VSP and seed isn't as fresh as from the circles. You can always join the circle and not have all the returns? Or use them for local seed swaps? It's lovely to get some interesting varieties in the circle to let everyone try something different.

                              Go on, give it a whirl....would be lovely to have you on board.

                                Hi there! I’m interested in joining, if you guys will have me. Norfolk Grey advised I post here as I want to ask about cross pollination... my garden is small so it might be difficult to isolate too many plants. She seemed to think that cross pollination wouldn’t be a problem though?

                                I started growing last year, so I’m still a relative beginner. But assuming everything survives, this year I have...

                                F1s:
                                Mountain pride,
                                Totem,
                                Ildi

                                Not F1s?:
                                Golden sunrise,
                                Alicante,
                                Koralik,
                                Black Opal,
                                Amateur,
                                Gardeners delight

                                I have seed for but haven’t sewn:
                                Tumbling Tom red,
                                Yellow delight

                                And I ordered yesterday (after reading the thread that made me realise I haven’t sewn many varieties after all):
                                Gold rush currant,
                                Mexico midget,
                                Matt’s wild cherry
