  • Seed Circle Number 11 - The Exotics! 2012

    This circle is for the Rare, Unusual, Heirlooms and Exotics in the way of Fruit and Veg
    The stuff you don't normally stumble across in the catalogues

    The rules are the same as the other circles
    I'll need your seeds by December 1st 2012 for distributing the following January 2013

    Open to ALL - Newbies/Oldies (!) all are welcome, you just need to save the seeds from your interesting crops

    No max limit on number of people in the circle and you don't need to pick more than one crop to save seeds from

    I'll start (received in red)

    1. Vicky - Bloody Butcher Sweetcorn
    2. Jeanied
    3. Northepaul
    4. BarleySugar

    Oooh ooooh * waves hand in air!
    Mee tooo
    Not sure what I can offer yet but I am hoping to have something interesting in the chilli / tomato line. I have just sown the seeds so who knows??? Maybe it will be squashes / pumpkins in the end!
    Whooops - now what are the dogs getting up to?

        Please count me in!!
        I have around 15 cape goosberry bushes on the go at the moment.
        And if that doesn't work I have a load of other stuff on the go

          May I join? I'm trying to grow groundcherry/physalis this year. It might be a total disaster, but so far the plants are growing nicely...

            Super trowel and gan heather you're both in (but cape gooseberry and physalis are the same thing...)

              I didn't see Super Trowel's post before I posted. But I have other things as well. Will just wait and see what turns out nicely.

                    I'd like to join too, but also not sure what I can offer yet. I've got some interesting peas, but they should probably go to the peas/beans circle. I did save some seeds from some French beefsteak (red and orange) tomatoes last year from when we went on holiday, but I don't know what varieties they are .
                    I've got plants going, but are probably not exotic enough.
                    I could not live without a garden, it is my place to unwind and recover, to marvel at the power of all growing things, even weeds!
                    Now a little Shrinking Violet.

                      Me please.

                      I am hoping to have either some cinnamon vine tubers, some yacon, and have some other strange stuff as seedlings which I don't want to get people's hopes up so I will post as and when I know they are looking slightly successful.

                          Hi, Please could I join? I am not really growing exotics, but unusual or old varieties of herbs - woad, vietnamese coriander (fingers x) and sweet cecily or similar (unsure yet still deciding!! ).....not sure if this what you are looking for?? If not, no worries

                              hello - love the idea of this but i have a question - does it have to be only self-saved or can it be interesting bought seed too? BR
