    Hi Enrico - I've taken over the Virtual Seed Parcel from Zazen! You'll have seen the list of seeds that are in the parcel http://www.growfruitandveg.co.uk/gra...nce_68032.html
    That's an amazing list of seeds that you have, and I may need translations of some!! The problem may be that most of the seeds in the VSP are small quantities. Where there are larger quantities they have been bought in and are mostly Franchi or Seeds of Italy seeds . So your friends wouldn't want those.
    If you want to choose from the list I could tell you how many seeds I have and you could decide whether you want to swap perhaps. I don't know how many friends are in your seed circle so its hard for me to know how many you would want. let me know what you think

    hi veggiechicken the group is made of over 800 people but everyone help the other... with one of my old post about swapping seeds with italian i had some variety and some of them only 15-20... a quantity of 15-20 is enought for tomato so i can share between 3 -4 people and then they will share with the other...in few words they are responsible of reproduce the plants for seed making so to share the year after with the other....so don't worry about big quantity even if you have 10 of something and i give you 30-40 i don't mind... the important is share this wonderfull variety of veg..

    Thank you Enrico, I understand now Have a look at the VSP list, decide what you would like and let me know when you're ready. I'll send you my address and we can take it from there. Thanks

    Hi VC.i'm wondering if my packet is arrived. I don't want all those packets of seeds ( over 90 packets) gonna be lost. I start to worry considered that is already over 1 week that I send it to you.
