    Have seen the Sutton’s grafted veg in a local Garden Centre - VERY expensive - and I’d just like to try it and see what the difference is between a “normal” seed raised variety and the same variety grafted on to a tough old rootstock.

    Hi. I'd like to join please. I plan to save Cyril's Choice, Lukullus, and Raspberry Oxheart. Please note that there is some room for confusion, as I see that PaulieB has joined - you might want to reflect that he is he and me is me (!) on the master list at the top of the thread.

    Thanks to Scarlet for running this again - it is very much appreciated!

    Scarlet - Just sown the following from the VSP getting old and need new stock list

    Alaskan Fancy, Cyril's Choice, Egyptian, First In The Field, Kenilworth King George, Lukullus, Petit Moineau, Sallisaw Cafe, Stupice.

    I will select two for this years Seed Circle but how many packs of seeds from the others, assuming they actually germinate! do you want to keep the stocks of the VSP fresh?

    We don't seem to get much interest in the VSP these days. Possibly because the criteria is a bit tight? But it's hardly worth swapping a load of interesting or unusual tomato seed for gardeners delight or money maker as no one ever requests those back out.
    If anyone has any ideas - please let me know.

    Scarlet - How many other apart from me have requested packs from the VSP in the last 12 months? That may give us an indication of perhaps better ways of dealing with it, if the conclusion is that one actually wants too.

    Personally I think its a great resource and have listed those I requested with photos and information on my blog, more in an attempt to recall why I wanted them in the first place as I was on the search for mini and micro tomato plants to add to my growing personal collection which is mainly as a result of this seed circle and I'm now running a Tomato Seed Circle on the Mind Your Peas and Cues Facebook Group.
