    Default Chilli plug plant swap

    Would anyone be interested in swapping spare chilli plants?
    I've got a few, hopefully there will be more by time germinating has finished.

    Obviously not yet because the babies are to young to survive travel. Just seeing if there's any interest

    I'd like to keep it simple, like me

    1 plant for 1 plant , 2 for 2, 3 for 3 you get the idea.
    I'll cover cost posting to you if you will do the same.

    I don't have anything I could safely package them in, I don't think. Also I HAVEN'T GOT ROOM FOR ANY MORE VARIETIES - when will I get this simple idea into my thick skull? I have to confess to having thrown out several surplus germinated seedlings already - I feel like a murderer.

    You could package them in toilet roll inners plus some bubble wrap.

    And when your back stops aching,
    And your hands begin to harden.
    You will find yourself a partner,
    In the glory of the garden.

    Now that's a good idea. OK, I'm in! Some of my spare seedlings are looking rather lanky at the moment, though, as they haven't had any daylight.

    I'm very easily pleased I'd be happy with anything as long as I'm not growing it already and it's not pretty in purple . I'd even consider varieties I grew last year but have dropped . The way my germination is going I'd probably be over the moon if you had a lemon drop available!

    A plastic takeaway meal box is good too. Wrap the seedlings in cling film and pack them closely in the box. Pad with bubblewrap, put the lid on and stick in an envelope.

    Ok...I really like this idea, it's made me think I need to sow more
