    Default The Tomato Seed Circle 2019

    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!

    Hey Scarlet can I join in? I’ll post a list tomorrow of what I’m growing so you clever bunch can double check there’s no f1’s or just too boring if that’s ok?

    I'll let you off SP!

    Chrissy, most tomatoes are acceptable but lots of us get the monthly mag and the same tomatoes are offered every year....money maker is one of them.
    Also most people have gardeners delight - I sow it most years and so do most other tomato growers I know so seed for that one is usually plentiful.
    Put your list up....there will one or two you can save I'm sure. If you haven't got one I'm sure I could send you something

    Thank you VC - you are in at number 1!
