    You were quite right, Nellie -it really was a surprise to receive the seed!!
    And a lovely one - thank you.
    They arrived this morning, and I am just delighted.
    I will let you know how they do in my little patch.
    Thank you

    - Black Russian
    - Striped Roman
    - Gelbe Koenigin

    Also I have some
    - Orange Favourite (from a swap, I haven't got too many seeds of those but will gladly share)

    All 2011 seeds, all vine tomatoes

    This is not a swap (I can't get hold of Royal Mail stamps as I'm not in the UK, and your SAEs wouldn't work in this case, either). Just drop me a PM with your address during the next, say, two weeks, and I'll send you some, hoping you'll like them and pass some seeds on to someone else next year.

    You can see pictures of the first three varieties in my photo album if you visit my profile, also a brief description of each variety. I got them from G. Bohl's "Private seed archive" which tries to save more than 2,000 varieties from all over the world. I'll soon send my surplus seeds back to the archive and swap there but if some of you Grapes would like to try them, that would be great, after all, that's the whole point, isn't it?

    As an exile from Derbyshire, born in S. Derbys, I'd love to try the Bretby & Blaby - if you get any seeds and have a few spare - keep me in mind.
