    Default Tomato seeds to good homes

    Well, the whole point of a heritage is to pass it on, right? So, if anyone would like to try some of the tomato varieties I grew this year, I'll be happy to pass some seeds on. This year's three toms were:

    - Black Russian
    - Striped Roman
    - Gelbe Koenigin

    Also I have some
    - Orange Favourite (from a swap, I haven't got too many seeds of those but will gladly share)

    All 2011 seeds, all vine tomatoes

    This is not a swap (I can't get hold of Royal Mail stamps as I'm not in the UK, and your SAEs wouldn't work in this case, either). Just drop me a PM with your address during the next, say, two weeks, and I'll send you some, hoping you'll like them and pass some seeds on to someone else next year.

    You can see pictures of the first three varieties in my photo album if you visit my profile, also a brief description of each variety. I got them from G. Bohl's "Private seed archive" which tries to save more than 2,000 varieties from all over the world. I'll soon send my surplus seeds back to the archive and swap there but if some of you Grapes would like to try them, that would be great, after all, that's the whole point, isn't it?

    I would love to try your black russian. I'm sure I can send some seeds to wherever you are, as long as it' not australia....only because they're a bit funny about it....

    Where are you based? I'd love to try a couple black russians too, depending on your location as taff says!

    Hi all, I'm in North Germany, Lueneburg Heath, not too far from Munster which some may know. Very flat, very sandy soil, very few people and lots of landscape You can walk for days on end and hardly ever meet anyone, apart from roe deer, hares and birds of course. Absolutely lovely!
    But to get back on topic - yes you can all gladly have some, but you need to give me your address Santa is too busy at the moment to help me with seed orders!

    My heart fluttered just a little when I read that, how very lucky you are. I hate living in the city but who knows, maybe one day

    fab. I can do in return....

    brads black heart if you havent got that. Doesn't split, big heart shaped beefsteak.
    Black trifele [ but you will have to sow a handful of seeds and pick out the potato leaved ones because i mixed up a load of them with black krim by accident - I didn't save any from this years so I have to do that next year ]
