    No I'm all fine.

    Just worried nobody is requesting Seeds. They need to be sow and grown, that's what seeds do!

    Go on Deano...loads of peeps would ask for your rosella seeds.
    What are you after?

    As Seasprot has said, they need to be sown and grown. The seeds will get to old to sow if you don't request them...I'd love to try them all but I can't sow them all in the same year. If you use the VSP our little seed bank stays fresh...

    Please don't see the VSP as being scroungey. The VSP is there for everyone and is fantastic for trying something new but it is also great to be able to grow other grapes seeds (if you like being sentimental). As previously mentioned they do need to be sown regardless.

    Hi Scarlet

    Many thanks, but pretty much have what I need for the coming season, but tell you what I will offer!

    If there is anything in short supply and needs growing for the sake of saving seed, I'll gladly give it space and grow it on for the purpose of keeping seed fresh.

    Also still a little "Jubious" about the "Rosella" being an F1! so out of the original packet I bought, still have about 20 seeds left.

    I'll need at max two plants, so will sow 4 seeds and send the rest to the VSP, along with the remaining saved seed I have left over, clearly marked as to which is which obviously!

    At least if no one else gets to taste the "Tomato from Heaven" You will!

    I have no such qualms - unfortunately I have no seeds to speak of this year so can't swap....
