    I'd like to join too, but also not sure what I can offer yet. I've got some interesting peas, but they should probably go to the peas/beans circle. I did save some seeds from some French beefsteak (red and orange) tomatoes last year from when we went on holiday, but I don't know what varieties they are .
    I've got plants going, but are probably not exotic enough.

    I could not live without a garden, it is my place to unwind and recover, to marvel at the power of all growing things, even weeds!

    Me please.

    I am hoping to have either some cinnamon vine tubers, some yacon, and have some other strange stuff as seedlings which I don't want to get people's hopes up so I will post as and when I know they are looking slightly successful.

    Thea, Just butting in here to say that Vietnamese Coriander roots very easily from cuttings. I have some rooting here now, ready to pot up.
