    Sorry seasprout, havent heard of this one.

    And when your back stops aching,
    And your hands begin to harden.
    You will find yourself a partner,
    In the glory of the garden.

    Victory Seeds in the US have them, and it looks like they ship to the UK. I went through to the shipping selection and the UK is on their dropdown list.

    Thanks for that sparrow, I've placed an order.

    The only other U.S. Seed supplier I found who would ship to the UK wanted a $25 surcharge. :-/

    Ok it is highly unlikely I will offer Lucky Leprechaun seeds now (see minor rant thread)

    I've created a spreadsheet with my varieties and those I'm considering from the VSP.

    Name, type, colour, size etc.

    So if anyone wants to use it to help out, be my guest. It's my second time round shortlist so not all varities are included.

    (Oh and please don't nab the ones I want so there aren't any left).

    I have seeds of all the ones that aren't labelled VSP, except for Moneymaker, so no loss there.

    Argh... the agony of my vsp tomato shortlist being 21. Which baby gets cut? I need wine....

    (PS. When I am bagging up my seeds to send in, I believe 5 per packet is the number preferred, yes? What other info is needed, other than variety)

    Rosie - are you talking about seeds for the tomato circle (Scarlet suggests about 5 seeds) or the VSP (6-10 seeds). VSP info at http://www.growfruitandveg.co.uk/gra...cel_83432.html
