    Default The All In Seed Circle 2018

    Who would like to join in a 'all in' swap this year? Open to up to 20 members.
    Save seeds from at least 2 varieties of fruit,veg or herbs (not F1 or close offspring), bag them up at the end of the year (so if 20 members you'd need to send in 19 packets of each type of seed), post them to me with some stamps for return postage, and grow some new to you varieties next year in exchange.

    All seed families (except flowers) welcome regardless of specific circles. I realise there may actually be sane people on the vine who do not wish for 20+ varieties of tom or chilli (can't think why )

    Tips here for seed saving: http://www.growfruitandveg.co.uk/gra...ml#post1397063

    Anyone interested?
    Closes to members on 31st October. Anyone who hasn't said what they have saved by 31st October will be removed from the list. Peeps must meet the vine swap rules by this date.

    Why do chickens come to mind
    Sometimes you just have to scratch that itch and get dirt under your finger nails.
