    We would love to have some new savers on board! Tomato saving is easy.
    We can give you some hints and tips - don't be afraid to ask any questions.
    What varieties are you growing?

      I'd like to join if possible - is being in foreign fields a problem? I may be able to persuade my Mum to be a UK post box (sounds very clandestine!!).

        No problem. Happy to send to you......




        I think I owe you a stamp as well. I also owe VC, NG Farendwoman, selkirkalex and a few others
        #Edit: It's Roitelet that I owe ( got my French grapes muddled) OMG it really mounts up how many peeps send you seeds

          From wild boar farms I've got:

          Berkley Tie Dye, pink Berkley Tie Dye and Black Beauty.

          I've also got Tumbling Tom and Gardeners Delight not sure if these are F1 but I will check. I've got Sungold too but they definately are!

              So I've had a look at my grow list and it is very bland compared to you lot - very much at the Moneymaker end of the Exciting Tomato Scale.

              I'm thinking to avoid duplication -
              St Pierre
              Cherry Roma
              Omars Lebanese

              I've not grown the last two before or saved tomato seeds either ...

                Count me in again, please Scarlet.
                Maybe Violet Jasper and Black Icicle
                If no one else is going for those.
                Otherwise I’ll come up with something else hopefully.

                  Hopefully me too if we can still be friends after Brexit
                  I dream of a better tomorrow, where chickens can cross the road and not be questioned about their motives....

                    I would like to join in if possible. Only growing two varieties this year, Red Alert and Riesentraube, with an outside chance of some Italian plum Pomodoro S. Marzano 2 from some old seed.

                      I haven't made my mind up what ones yet, just soooooo much choice
                      Will have at least 4 types to choose from when the time comes.

                      Happy sowing everyone
                      I got a bonus 2 seeds of Jersey Devil collected in 2011 in last years seed swap. Amazingly both have germinated and have gained the coveted position of the ones that get the Glasshouse and are romping away. I even think that one is showing signs of flower buds forming. These are large red paste/plum tomatoes. If they do well they shall be 1 of my submissions. I have already said Evergreen, currently not doing as well as the rest, hopefully I will get some fruit from it.

                        My plants are in and growing. Is there a list of what people are proposing yet?

                        My contribution (assuming all goes well) could be from Estler's Mortgage Lifter, Radiator Charlie's Mortgage Lifter and Summer Cider but I've others if these would be duplicates.

                              Scarlet did say elsewhere she had enough of the forum update problems and she wasn't coming back, no idea if she will return or not.
                              If I'm not on here, I'm probably fishing.
