    Ophiopogon, I'm not sure that's a good idea, because of the risk of introducing a disease or pest into another country. Also, plants that thrive in Valencia might struggle even in a greenhouse here. What do the others think?

    I thought it would be ok (He's in my pumpkin circle, growing pumpkin Casper) as I checked to make sure we are allowed to send to Spain (postoffice site) and there's no restrictions.
    I also mentioned that he would have increased postage costs.

    Can i join in? I might need a little help along the way never having saved seed for anyone other than myself!
    I have Parsnip - White Gem, Carrot - Autumn King and Flat Leaf Parsley - Italian Giant still in the ground from last year, hopefully they will set seed this year.

    Scarlet, welcome.

    Ophiogon, I'm attending a beekeeping course at the moment, and it's rather depressing to see the number of diseases bees get nowadays, none of which originated in the UK, all imported by beekeepers who thought this would be ok, so I'm sorry that I'm not going to let you participate.

    Vicky, sorry for asking your opinion and then doing the opposite. I didn't like to say no, so I felt unsure at first, but now I've come to the conclusion this decision is my responsibility.

    Scarlet, how did the Autumn King do? I grew them in 2009/2010, and they had very little frost damage. This winter was a bit colder, and I found that Lisse de Meaux had more frozen and then rotten tops, so I was wondering whether it was the variety or the winter. Of course, you live further West, so you might have had a milder winter.
