    Hi Scarlett,

    I didn't see that Summer Cider wa taken. I'm growing about 27 varieties altogether this year, but most of them are relatively common or ones I haven't grown before so I don't know what they're like and didn't want to offer them for the swap until I've tried them for myself.

    So what if I swap Summer Cider for Tamina?

    Norfolk Grey has said she is happy to offer another variety so ive put you down for Summer Cider. Its only a guide, things change towards the end of the season, some toms fail, peeps drop out etc so its not all set in stone. I'll add in Tamina as alternative if needed.

    They could well have come from me. In which case I'm glad you liked them enough to share them with others.

    Right! Gunna challenge myself n dig in at the deep end!
    Growing "Rosella" this year, a new one to the breed, Almost seedless it say's on the tin!

    I'm just a "Fool"

    But gunna have a bash at saving seed from these! If they have any! the sound of sweet but smokey undertones is just doing it for me!

    Count me in for this one alone!

    Can you stretch to 2 varieties Deano? it's easy, you only need about 2 or 3 toms of each variety

    I'll do my best! But wanting it to be an unusual variety rather than 'run of the mill" See what I have growing!

    Could you put me down for some time seed swapping.

    I've got probably 10+ varieties on the go so will see what grows well and try not to clash with what others are growing.
