    Default Aubergine - Black Beauty - Free seeds

    While sorting out my seeds I've discovered that I have somehow acquired tonnes of Aubergine seeds in the last year (all new from packets). Problem is they're all identical - Black Beauty. I'd like to see them go to a good home, so if anyone would like some please post in this thread and PM me your address and I'll send you some in the post

    On the off chance anyone has any spare of the few seeds (1. Large traditional-type sunflower, 2. Cucumber Beit/Beth Alpha, 3. ANY other Aubergine variety!) I'm after I'd be more than grateful for a swap, but I'm not looking to gain anything in return - just want this vast quantity of seeds to be used!

    I grew dozens of these last year for myself, friends, and family with great success. I wouldn't mind some packets if you have any spare.

    If there's any still spare, I'm collecting any and all spare seeds for a seed swap (it's the first time it's run, so I want to have some stuff to start it all off)- I think I've got some sunflowers I could send you back.

    I'd be interested in a couple of seeds if there are any left - literally a couple as it would be an experiment so wouldn't want to deny others from auberginey goodness. I have no greenhouse but I do work in a very hot office! Might as well make the most of it and see if they'll grow. I'm afraid I don't have any of what you want to swap... I do randomly have over 600 brussel sprout seeds if you fancy any - overrun!

    Hi all, just replied to everyone who PM'd me. I've been away from the board for a few days so my apologies for the late reply - I though I'd get an email if I got a private message. If anyone else wants any let me know - those of you who have sent me your details I will get them in the post today for you
