    Sorry for dense question but why is f1 no good? And how do I know if it is f1? I'd love to be in if I can identify some good possibilities

    Because seeds saved from F1 parents will probably not grow the same as the parent plant.
    Seed packets should state if the seeds are F1.

    I'm hoping that all the Grapes who joined the Random Excess Seed Swap that is open at the moment, will also join this one. They'll all meet the 3 months membership criteria and just need to make 50 posts before closing date. Easy peasy.
    Join it, it'll be even more fun than the Random one.

    The best way to reduce your seed collection is by sowing them.

    I'd better follow my advice.

    Reduce?!?! Ha - good luck with that I bought myself a folding bookcase so my small collection isn't so noticeable
