    I agree that they're totally fab - they don't sell everything I'd want but pretty much all my chillies and peppers have come from there plus a load of other things. Save the seeds and have given loads to other people. Also if you have a query you get great customer service and really helpful advice by return.

    Some of us live in the past, always talking about back then. Some of us live in the future, always planning what we are going to do. And, then there are those, who neither look behind or ahead, but just enjoy the moment of right now.

    Which one are you and is it how you want to be?

    Oops, just put in another order and worked out why I had never noticed the 8 minimum order either

    Ha ha VVG, you sound just like me.

    I ordered a couple of seeds from Real Seeds earlier this month, not used them before but I was impressed by their approach to things and like the fact that they tell you how to save seed, and seem to have so many unusual varieties (well unusual to me anyway). Not sown anything yet from them though.

    They have these funky tri-coloured radishes, when I saw them I just had to try them

    Helgalush, have also ordered the winter radish, amongst many others. That's it now, I'm stopping...until seed swap day at Ryton's potato day. Just the one more and then that REALLY IS IT!

    Their leeks, celeriac and toms are through already. I'm impressed and as you say I too shall be able to save seed.

    I would definately recommend Real Seeds, i've used them for 4 years now. Big thumbs up from me.

    The only issue I have is the minimum order too. I placed a big order for this year but forgot a coulple of things and placed another order and would you believe I STILL forgot to add celeriac to the list. There is always next year

    Real Seeds - First Class

    Very helpful and genuinely interested in their clients. A couple of years ago I was cheeky enough to ask their advice about a variety of bean I had been given at a seed swap - they couldn't have been more helpful in their advice and response and even asked me to let them know how I got along with the crop. What lovely people all round
