    I'm in and will hopefully be saving Di Chioggia beetroot, Avon Resister parsnip and from a range of tomatoes, peas and beans.

        I'm in and hope to save Babington leeks and something unusual - who knows what will grow this year?

          I'm in too and hope to save from beans, peas and tomatoes. I'm also going to be adventurous and try to save from a chilli pepper "Lemon Drop" with the glue method, if someone will teach me

            This is a Circle. Not a parcel.

            We aren't going to support any additional Circles; because I now have the issue of tracing and sorting out someone else's Circle as it all comes to us if it goes wrong.

            So we are going to ask any other Circles to be run outside of the Vine.

              I still don't know how this will work?? Will it be just like last years all in circle?? What do you mean when you get to choose what you want???

                I have a couple of new tomatoes to grow this year, haven't sown them yet - so can't remember both of their names

                I also have some white devoy beetroot that's still in the ground so I'm hoping to save seed from that too. It's white (obviously), and shaped like a parsnip. Will need to do a bit of research on how to isolate mind.

                  Once we have the list at the end of the year, you can choose what you want.

                    Tomatoes, Peppers, Black Hungarian chilli, and hopefully peas and beans depending on the weather.

                      It's probably me being thick, but I'm sure I will understand it eventually lol

                        Bit like a mini VSP?

                          Well that's definitely me being thick - but what's the difference to the Virtual Seed Parcel then?
                          and what if more people want one variety than there's packets?

                            There will be a list and you can say what you want.

                            some people will want as many bags as possible, some might want just peas and beans or tomatoes; but having individual circles is great until the harvests are bad but this way, everyone will still get a decent amount of seeds and it will save on the postage.

                            Lets see what people want to save first...

                              The VSP is donated seeds not saved seeds.

                              Copied from post number 1 'Then once we know who is in or out, and what harvests we have, we can decide how many packets to split yours into before you send it in. '

                              In quite a few cases, people have donated to both the tomato circle and the all in with the same seeds; so this way we just keep it all in one big circle.
