    Default Seed Circle 2 2010-2011

    14 September 2010: This circle is closed.

    Since zazen999's circle filled up in no time, I thought I'd start a second circle. Again for 16 grapes. I'd suggest we all grow two varieties, and enough for 15 others, obviously.

    To keep it simple I'll just propose two to start with, but if participants want something else, I do have other things I could be growing.

    squash summer crookneck

    See zazen999's thread for details:

    Hi
    I think that is a great idea, I had been looking at the posts the last couple of days and thought that it was a pity it was full.
    Put my name down please, I will look at what I will grow the next few days
    Seasons greetings to everyone

    I would be interested, however I am quite new to growing, so not sure if I would be suitable?

    Northepaul, just pick things that are annuals and don't cross easily, like tomato, lettuce, some herbs, peas, french beans (not other beans, and you would need a bit of space to grow enough seed for both peas and french beans), some of the things that you normally sow after midsummer can be sown in spring to grow seed, like fennel, chard, some brassicas like chinese cabbage, provided you let only one member of each species go to seed (e.g. not chard and beetroot at the same time). See here for more details:

    Also very interested but do the seeds have to be heritage varieties.

    count me in as well, don't have any saved seed from last year but will have a think about what I can grow this year (plus I can see what I can pick up on my next trip to Slovakia)

    as for heritage seeds, i think i read on the other thread that anything can be saved.

    ps does restricting this to 16 people class as a clique? (sorry couldn't resist)
