    My part of the VSP has halved since I have had it and there is a good chance it will be gone in a couple of years as there are so few requests. Tomatoes are usually the most popular. The VSPs are fantastic but they can't carry on indefinitely as they are

    Just to say, I would have been happy to be part of, and contribute to the VSP. But the rules changed.
    This is not a complaint,,,,,just saying.
    When I joined, a long time ago, the VSP came to me but now it's only within the UK.

    Scarlet, Iíll have a go with purple OSU and try to get some fresh seed going for the seed circle. Itís an amazing colour and looks interesting but, according to what Iíve read, doesnít have much taste.
    Itís not too late is it?

    I think it maybe is a bit late to start now?

    Blue Osu was one of the first of the first high anthocyanin tomatoes to be developed by Jim Myers.
    It isn't a tomato that I would grow again. It was pretty bland. Dancing with Smurf's is one of the antho toms with a good colour, reasonable taste and still fun.

    Shall we forget it for this year then?
    Got enough plants to worry about really! And there’s not a lot of point in growing something that is tasteless.
    Thanks Scarlet
    Please ignore my pm to you ..... I shall wait for next year’s seed circle parcel instead.
    And again - thank you for organising it all.

    They were changed to UK return address after I had some problems with overseas postage.
    If there's anything you want from the VSP, bramble, let me know and you can use my address and I'll forward them on to you.

    That's very kind VC, I am fine for now...
    It was just the fact that seeds might go past their sell by, for the want of someone growing them out.
    Thank you for the offer...I will keep it in mind. ��
