    Default Seeds for swap / sae

    Hello, new to the website and love the idea

    I have the following for swap or sae (prefer swap for owt):-

    Tomatoe - Purple russian
    Tomatoe - Shirley (from last yrs crop, nice toms)
    Chilli - Apache (last yr crop, loads of chilli)
    Herbs - basil / coriader jantar / sweet basil / parsley grune perle / oregano / sweet marjoram / sage / dill / chives
    Beetroot detroit 2
    Radish saxa 2
    Onion ramrod
    Lettuce ice king
    Lettuce Misticanza

    Basically got loads of seeds as a leaving present from work and cant grow everything. Interested in any type of tomato or any other plants that are remotely interesting.

    Not a big garden and growing mainly in pots so pot friendly stuff is bestish.

    Hi JG

    Do you fancy trying some Reisetomate tomato seed to try?

    They certainly look different

    Hi Jedi, I'd like to try some sweet marjoram & sage seeds, here's a list of most of my toms, any you'd like to try? Are the Apache chilli self-saved?

    I think I've still got seeds of all of these, depending on how many you'd like all (but Sungold F1) are open pollinated.

    Garden Pearl (for pots)
    Costoluto Fiorentino
    Principe Borghese
    San Marzano
    Zapotec Pleated
    Matina
    Sungold F1
    Sub Artic Plenty (bush type)
    Roman candle (I think, but name's in Russian!)
    Gardener's Delight
    A black tom (with name in Russian!)
    Orange Banana
    St Pierre
    Bloody Butcher
    Garden Pearl
    Black Cherry
    Red Calabash
    Paul Robeson
    Eva Purple Ball

    Got some applegreen aubergine that might be okay outside, if its somewhere warm, in a pot.

    PM me if you're interested.
