    Hi Nellie M - got a lovely surprise from Germany this morning. To say I'm thrilled is an understatement...so shattered after all that wallpapering and this made my day today. Thank you so much - will post my pics when I start germinating, well not me personally

    Hi VVG, you're very welcome - you see, the postage was the same, whether I sent one bag or more - and I really saved enough so...

    I just hope they'll do well in your different climate and soil conditions, and that you'll like them all.

    Oops, it seems the post I tried to make just before the forums went down this morning didn't actually get posted.

    My seeds arrived on Thursday and what a lovely surprise Nellie - you didn't have to send that many!! Thank you so much indeed Merry Christmas!

    Well I am delighted - there must be something you would like but can't get maybe...have a think and let me know. You deserve an early Christmas present too

    well, there was an article about them that really made me curious. I have friends who live near Blaby, who had never heard of them before - retired people who should remember something, at least someone talking about them, because according to this article, the Blaby tomatoes were famous and very popular. It made me wonder whether it was really a special variety, or whether the farm was just very efficient in growing a normal, commercial variety of the time.
