  • VSP Clear out

    Lots of seeds are getting old here. Mostly due to the fact that those that donate are very generous but they are usually the grapes that also participate in the seed circles and can't possibly grow anymore than they do.
    There is a local seed swap that I will be going to in February. I will try to swap the surplus that we have for something that we don't see currently in our seed circles but I will be getting rid of the excess bulk and only keeping a handful of the more interesting and OP. I'm slowing packing them up to take.

    Lots of the varieties are duplicates so I have more than 1 ,F1s, common varieties or varieties that don't seem to get on most grapes grow lists so are several years old.

    If there's anything here you wish to try please let me know.

    Tomatoes:


    Belle F1
    Beefmaster F1
    Brandywine

    Losetto F1

    Tigerella
    Tamina

    Roma VF
    Ruby F1
    Tomato Russe ( French Packet)

    Super Marmande
    SAN Marzano
    Golden Sunrise

      I would love to try Golden Sunrise, Ruby and Brandywine, but don't think I have been here long enough?

        Anyone interested in anything on the seed lists rather than just the ones above?
        I started to go through them but lots of the seed are getting very old and I think they need to be used. I have tried a few and I've had no joy on a few - obviously I can't try everything. If you are interested in anything on the lists now is your chance - send me a message if you fancy anything. No swap required as germination will be suspect.

        Lists here

            You should have received the Alberto locotos in your chilli parcel? The red manazano I have in the propagator.

            I should have more to try - they are ones I saved a few years ago.

              Many thanks for all your work Scarlet - as it is I have more seeds than I know what to do with and the only ones I am thinking of buying are a few specialist tree seeds and some tomatoes to use as rootstocks for grafting - not sure if I will even buy any of these as they could be a waste of money, I have done almost zero gardening over the last 4 months :-(

                  Have a look and get back to me - if im successful with the manzanos we could do a seedling swap? they were from the 2016 circle I think. send me a Pm.

                      Well you were right - Alberto's Locoto was in the seed circle and I had put the packet aside ready to sow, then misplaced it. Fingers crossed I don't need Manzano any more - I received some in another swap last year, sowed them almost four weeks ago, thought they were duds, then one appears to have popped this morning. As long as it grows on OK, that'll be me sorted.

                        Wondering if you might have any tomato seeds still available?


                        Having been in work what feels like 24/7 with the current covid-19 I've missed being able to buy any tomato seeds and now everywhere is closed or have massive delays.

                        I've dozens of root veg seeds to donate to any cause, the only missing seeds are the ones I need.

                          Fuzzy, I'm running a Random Seeds Swap and there are some tomato seeds in there from the VSP clear out that I could send you. I have plenty that you could have too.
                          If you'd like to send me some Root veg seeds, I'll swap them to the others.

                            What's the likley post date as I'm hoping to get them going early next week whilst I have some rest days before the next batch of crazy hours?
