  • Butternut squash seeds for SAE or radish seeds

    You know me, I can't throw away a handful of seeds when I see them, so I saved loads of seeds from a squash from my local farm shop. I planted one and left it on the windowsill to make sure they are fertile. Sprouted within a week and so I have a nice little squash seedling :-)

    Anyway, I have tons, so if anyone wants some then PM me. Either an SAE or swap for some cherry belle radish seeds.

    Serene she stand amid the flowers,
    And only count lifes sunny hours,
    For her dull days do not exist,
    Evermore the optimist

      Have heard somewhere that saved seeds from squashes etc wont be the actual variety and will be a cross which may be inedible? is this true?

        I have french breakfast growing atm, the ones that came free with last month's GYO. But thanks for the offer.

        No idea. I'll have a look around and see.

          It looks like they will still be edible, but might be weird and wonderful shapes :-)

          This sounds like a competition to me...

            Oh wait, it seems that the main issue is when squashes cross pollinate with courgettes, and apparently butternut varieties won't cross pollinate with courgettes so I think they should be OK.
