    My seeds arrived yesterday, I'm looking forward to planting them! This might be a stupid question but I don't know the answer - does each individual plant produce different fruits or does each seed produce a plant with the same fruits, and the plants are all different? Sorry to be such a thicko!

    The plants will/may be all different.
    I used to have an Organic veg shop. The bloke I got our Squash from had fields with all different squash. When the bees pollinate the fruit runs true for one season but after that it's anybodys guess.
    So it's a complete lucky dip. You could get 6 Butternut and 1 Crown Prince plant or 3 Turks Turban 1 Gem and 2 Harlequin or absolutely anything else across the Squash spectrum as they've come from fields with about 20 different varieties.
    He saved his seed and so do I. The 'parentage' is vast though.
    It's great fun but a bit difficult to work out if you've got Bush, Climbers or trailers. I wait till I can see if they want to climb or not then bung in a frame or wigwam for them. Or just let them make their own way to the nearest tree or whatever.

    Default seeds to swap

    hi, I am working in a secondary school and have started up a gardening club I would love any winter squash seeds. We have some interesting seeds like purple tiger pepper and cypress vine and bolotto beans so could do a swap. We also require a water butt and composter if anybody in the Norfolk area can help?

    Thanks Claire

    Claire I've not got much left but will happily send you what there is. PM me your address. Probably best to repost this as a new post in the seed swap thread so that everyone sees it. This is an old thread which noone really looks at any more.
