    Default True Potato Seed Offer

    Ihope its OK to offer seeds even though Im new?
    If not I appologise.

    I have some true potato seed / botanical seed
    Not sure if anybody here is interested but they had good germination so thought I'd offer some up

    They came from "Cara" Mothers / Unknown father (pos cara/sarpo mira)
    and are part of my blight resistance project.

    Just tell me you want some and ill send a few across (UK)
    Don't have masses but can probably send to a few members


    Sincerely
    Steve

    Hi Wago.
    The Forum has rules about seed swapping which you can read at https://www.growfruitandveg.co.uk/gr...nce_76437.html

    Basically, you need to be a member for 3 months and have made 50 posts before you can join in the Swaps. This rule had to be introduced because people were joining to grab "free" seeds and were never seen again.
    Seeds will only be sent within the UK and EU because of the various restrictions over the importation of plant materials. If you live outside these countries, we cannot help you.

    Stick around, become an active member - I'm sure you'll find it worthwhile!

    I have since got hold of a few other varieties to swap.
    Neither of us officially qualify to swap seeds (few posts to go for me)

    but they will be here and waiting when we both do...

    Sincerely
    Steve

    Maybe join the all in seed circle Steve? You don't need many seeds per bag?

    Scarlet I just had a look and Im more than happy to..do you mean instead of tom thread?
    Not sure if you think people will be interested in these?, or my tomatoes are too common for the dedicated tom thread? (I tend to overthink things)

    Mine have performed badly this season, si have less than hoped and I would probably not need all those tom seeds anyway : )

    Sincerely
    Steve

    You could join the tomato circle with your marmande - you don't really need huge quantities. Just one tomato usually has many more than you need....and you could also join the all in circle with your potato seed.
