  • Seed Circle 9 - the All in Circle 2012

    As a result of the poll that ran for quite a long time, I am opening the doors for the most popular Circle - an All in Circle.

    A document that gives info about seed saving in schools is here - you can pull out instructions on how to save different types of seeds from it.

    There are no limits on what seed to save - I'd suggest for newbies to save from tomatoes [using the ferment method which takes 3 days] or peas/French beans which can be left on the plant until dry and then hardened up indoors.

    If you are wanting to save from Squashes you will need to isolate the flowers from before they open and hand pollinate.

    Brassicas - also need isolating, a large number of them are needed and so you will need quite a bit of space.

    Beetroots - from last year's specimens - will need taking or a cage around them as they can get quite big ones flowered.

    That's the basics! Let the saving begin.

    Post on here if you are interested in participating and I'll add names to the list as we go.

    We don't know who voted on the poll, so even if you voted you still have to tell us that you want to join in!

                          Erm - just donate what you want to - if we did get two of the same then we just get two of the same, doesn't happen often.
