    Default Tomato VSP seeds anyone?

    After reading NGs post earlier with regard to old seed and germination problems I'm happy to post out tomato seed this week to anyone who is interested in saving seed.

    Normal seed swap rules apply - must have been a member for 3 months or more/ 50 posts.

    You need to send me a stamp for return postage. Max 10 varieties.
    It's not too late to sow more. Go on, give it a go!

    List of tomato seeds can be found here :

    Scarlet it sounds like you are "giving away" 10 seeds from the VSP as they're coming of age, wanting nothing in return but the postage paid back?!

    Scarlet, I would love them but I will have to go to Northern Ireland to get some stamps.
    Please keep me on your list as I will grow them out for you.

    You will find yourself a partner,

    Scarlet - Just sown the following from the VSP getting old and need new stock list

    Alaskan Fancy, Cyril's Choice, Egyptian, First In The Field, Kenilworth King George, Lukullus, Petit Moineau

    I will select two for this years Seed Circle but how many packs of seeds from the others, assuming they actually germinate! do you want to keep the stocks of the VSP fresh?

    Hi Scarlet, I'm a tomato newbie and have never saved seed, but happy to give it a try. Do I message separately for the address? I have some this-year seed of Tiny Tim and Windowbox Red I could contribute (from VC's early tomato challenge, both growing away now). I'd like Alaskan Fancy please.
