        Hi Scarlett & Everyone,

        I'm going to pull out of the seed swap this year. Earlier in the season one of my plants developed what I thought was early blight. However, it could be Bacterial Canker and has spread to more or less all my plants. Whilst it doesn't seem to have affected the crop as yet (although more green fruit are falling off than usual) the leaves, stems and fruit are affected. I've cut off leaves as they become infected but the cut ends develop grey mould which moves throughout the plant.

        Whatever it is, looking on the web, it can be passed on through seeds and I wouldn't wish this on anybody else so I won't send seeds out this year.

        Hopefully I'll be clear next year, I think its either come from seeds I saved from the allotment or in the compost (the seeds from the allotment are not ones I've shared with anybody).

            Hi all,
            I'm still keen....and have a few varieties drying out as I type.

            Sweetheart (from Realseeds)
            And 2 other varieties which I have saved after a number of years from a 'Summer Sensation' multipack from Suttons. Will confirm what I think the varieties are, but I believe they are Tanaki and ...? let me have a think......its a great tomato that is still holding onto fruit and has not been hit by blight like the rest of my greenhouse toms.

            Any thoughts on numbers and when we might be all in a position to be sending/swapping.
