    Eg: Post10 packs of toms/and or chilli seed to scarlet. And choose 10 from NGs VSP - peas beans etc....post the sae to NG for the return seeds?
    You'd probably find that someone would want seeds from all the VSP holders.

    I think if you take the time to read and piece together the info it becomes clear.

    For me the most complicated thing is when you look at the forum and see posts stickied from years aback. You've got the different seed circles and the different Vsps and for each one you've got the years before, presented at once on the page.Sometimes if the mods didn't bump the thread I wouldn't know if it was still going on or ended last year. And if you didn't read properly you mightn't catch the difference between the groups.

    Having said that I think it's fine, still grouped and not like one person for one veggie.

    Yes I would like seeds from all groups but I'll just have to work out for myself what's best r.e. postage costs to different holders and circles.

    All the Stickied posts are "Live" ones - either 2018 Seed Circles or VSP - and some essential information like the Seed Swap Rules and Seed saving.
    Previous years are not Stickied. You don't need to read back unless you want to see who participated.

    Sorry I didn't explain myself properly, some of the stickied posts originated in, for example 2016, so for a newbie to the forum it was a bit confusing.

    Actually I just realised that, if on a tablet in portrait like I am, you don't see the far right column with the date of the latest posts. You have to turn the device to a landscape view.

    Well that was awfully stupid of me.

    The 2016 threads are the VSP Seed lists which are updated as the stocks change.

    You'll get there!!
