    Bingo!

    I was thinking of asking the same VC, new starters ideas to try free seeds ;-)

    would be interested for beans, green tomatoes and Okra if available.

    I have lot of amarnath seeds shared by a friend last weekend. can share if any one likes to give a try.

    Subject to the usual seed swap rules, (50+ posts and memberships for one month + and an SAE) would anyone like a random selection of named chilli seeds to test for viability. If they grow, they're yours to keep and hopefully, save fresh seeds for the VSP.
    I'm starting with chillies but if you have a special interest in another category - like tomatoes, squashes etc, let me know, in a post below.
    I'll happily give it a go - I'm all for the VSP having a re-stocking of fresh seed from time to time. At the moment I have a heated propagator filled with the VSP facing heaven chillies. Fingers crossed they will come to something.

    Hi VC,

    You sound like you already have lots of offers but if you still need help let me know and I will send a SAE. I will squeeze them in some where. Anything to help you and the VSP

    Me also is up for trying anything you like,just to help with fresh/more seed,
    we should also bear in mind that special care be taken with such as squashes,as they cross pollinate,

    I have enough fresh seed thank you.

    However, in a few weeks time I can give you some known good fresh viable seed once I have made this years sowing.......
