    Default The Tomato Seed Circle 2018

    Yep! It's that time again

    C'mon you know you want to join there's nothing better than a parcel through the door around Christmas time full of seeds there's no better present. Everyone welcome.

    Save 2 varieties of tomatoes (no F1's) with 6-8 seeds per pack. Last year we had to save 12 packs of each variety. I'm happy to reduce to one variety if we can double our numbers??!!

    No pressure, register your interest - and the tomatoes you fancy saving if you know what you are going to grow

    #things don't often go to plan while growing so you can change your mind on what varieties you are saving. Remember there's loads of seeds in a cherry Tom, so you only have to save one or two but you do have to label them!

    I'm in. I don't know exactly what I'm growing this year but it will include:

    Oleron Yellow - a yellow cherry (These are seeds I've been growing out for 6-7 years so I think they're stable)
    True Black Brandywine (A potato leafed black beefsteak)

    Mind you, growing all the ones from 2017 means I haven't got a lot of space.
