    Just a small reminder that this is open. I am still here (I just don't post much cos I'm busy reading/planning the plot!) and happy to send out seeds for another 2 weeks, then that's it till 2018.

    Open again till the 30 April - please do have a look at the seed lists and see if there is anything you want to swap for.

    I will be adding in a couple of things over the next week or so.

    Sparrow100 directed me so hope I'm in the right place.
    I'd like to try some achocha seeds, any except the exploding in case my dog likes them.
    Read the rules but still confused and not sure what to do now.

    It opens from 01 Nov - I am taking pre-orders...

    We swap packet for packet, so 1 pack of VSP achocha seeds can be swapped for 1 pack of something else from your seeds that fits within the groups (Lettuce, curcurbit and 'miscellaneous'). You send me yours, plus a self-addressed envelope and the right stamps, and I send them back by return.

    Is that what you wanted to know? Do let me know if it's not clear.

    Thanks for explaining Sparrow,
    Therein lies my problem, I've got no seeds to swap, I've only really grown tomatoes and runner beans before and not unusual ones at that so I'll buy some and try it that way.
