  • The Flower Seed Circle 2018

    Who would like to join in a Flower Seed swap this year? Open to up to 20 members.
    Save seeds from at least 2 varieties of flowers (preferably not F1), bag them up at the end of the year (so if 20 members you'd need to send in 19 packets of each type of seed), post them to me with some stamps for return postage, and grow some luvly flowers from our gardens next year.

    Anyone interested?
    Closes to members on 31st October. Anyone who hasn't said what they have saved by 31st October will be removed from the list. Peeps must meet the vine swap rules by this date.

              NG! Do me a favour!

              PM your address again please! I do have it somewhere, but I have a "Boat Load" of flower seed I won't be using and will happily wing it your way!

                    Hi and welcome to the vine You are now on the list

                    Incase you didn't check the rules, we like new folk to stick around and chat especially before swapsies. You are relatively safe, they are a good bunch on here (just maybe a little odd ) so jump in anywhere. Have fun

                      In order to keep in touch, I’m hoping to share a cosmos, possibly a marigold, possibly a calendula.... possibly lots of other nice things.

                            Can I join in; or is it not feasible outside UK? I have tons of Gazania seeds of various colours.
