    Default *Who's Up For A Squash & Family Members Seed Swap Parcel*

    The Name of this parcel is "The Squash Club" Seed Parcel.

    Anyone is welcome to join in, experienced, not so experienced, down to the "just fancy a go at growing squash" peeps, etc.

    The Begging bit

    If there's anyone who has spare Squash, Pumpkin etc seeds they would like to donate to the parcel, to help get it up and running, I would be very grateful to you. I have a selection of seed to start off with, but any donations would be very much appreciated.

    What is allowed in.

    It's open to all the "Cucurbitaceae" Family, this includes:- Squash, Pumpkins, Courgettes, Cucumbers, Melons, Gherkins and Ornamental Gourds.

    What's not allowed in.

    ** I would be grateful if those adding seeds to the parcel would NOT collect/add the seeds from rough plants (Those that have crossed with any other squash etc) as we all know...squash can be very promiscuous . And they may not come true to the parent plant, Thanks.**

    The Interesting Bit

    The Parcel will be launched on Monday the 26th of April (at the latest).

    If you would like to receive "The Squash Club" Seed Parcel please add your name to this thread below or pm myself (ginger ninger) or enrich100.
    (if you pm me or enrich100 please write "The Squash Club" in the title, Thank's)

    The Boring Bit

    RULES

    The parcel works in the same way as The Chilli Head/Tomato Seed/Pass the Parcel i.e you take some seeds out, you put some back in, preferably putting more back in .

    (Standard Vine Rules)

    We reserve the right to remove you from the list.

    When you receive the parcel, please post it on as quickly as possible so as not to keep other's on the list waiting too long.

    You must have been registered on here for at least 1 (One) month, have posted at least 25 (Twenty Five) non-seed-swap related posts, and have logged on within the last fortnight by the time I come round to asking you for your address. Otherwise I just won't be contacting you.

    You will be removed from the list if you are banned from the forum.

    No member can receive 2 (Two) different parcels at any one time.

    Sorry but the parcel will not be sent Internationally.

    The Parcel

    When you send your parcel, it needs to be by the tracking method; otherwise if/when it gets lost/goes missing - we won't be able to track it.

    When you have posted your parcel, you need to PM me AND the person who is receiving the parcel with the tracking number.

    Don't worry if their is some duplication of seeds when you add your own seeds to the parcel, as some packets may only have a few seeds in them.

    Please try to take only what you need, you can always have the parcel again next year or sooner if your really keen .

    Some people have sugested putting your vine name on your packets of seeds, but this is optional.

    Any seeds left over from this years parcel will be rolled over to next year.

    If you think the Parcel has become too large/expensive to post please let me know.

    This is a link to "The Squash Club" Social Group Grow Your Own - Growing, How To Grow Tomatoes Growing Fruit & Veg - Recipe Advice, Organic food Gardening, Chickens, Seeds for Sale It's for you to post your comments GOOD or BAD on the contents of the parcel, we'd love to hear what you think, Thank You.

    Please do not pm your address until I ask for it. I will also require your VINE NAME AND YOUR PROPER NAME

    Thanks
    Janet.

    I don't want to join - but I used my Chicago Warted Hubbard (HSL seeds) this weekend and as a result I have a shedload of seeds. Should come true as I only grew Chestnut squash on the plot and they were miles away.

    Let me know if you want a load.
