    Default VSP Clear out

    Lots of seeds are getting old here. Mostly due to the fact that those that donate are very generous but they are usually the grapes that also participate in the seed circles and can't possibly grow anymore than they do.
    There is a local seed swap that I will be going to in February. I will try to swap the surplus that we have for something that we don't see currently in our seed circles but I will be getting rid of the excess bulk and only keeping a handful of the more interesting and OP. I'm slowing packing them up to take.

    Lots of the varieties are duplicates so I have more than 1 ,F1s, common varieties or varieties that don't seem to get on most grapes grow lists so are several years old.

    If there's anything here you wish to try please let me know.

    Tomatoes:


    Belle F1
    Beefmaster F1
    Brandywine

    Losetto F1

    Tigerella
    Tamina

    Roma VF
    Ruby F1
    Tomato Russe ( French Packet)

    Super Marmande
    SAN Marzano
    Golden Sunrise

    I would love to try Golden Sunrise, Ruby and Brandywine, but don't think I have been here long enough?

    Anyone interested in anything on the seed lists rather than just the ones above?
    I started to go through them but lots of the seed are getting very old and I think they need to be used. I have tried a few and I've had no joy on a few - obviously I can't try everything. If you are interested in anything on the lists now is your chance - send me a message if you fancy anything. No swap required as germination will be suspect.

    Lists here

    You should have received the Alberto locotos in your chilli parcel? The red manazano I have in the propagator.

    I should have more to try - they are ones I saved a few years ago.

    Many thanks for all your work Scarlet - as it is I have more seeds than I know what to do with and the only ones I am thinking of buying are a few specialist tree seeds and some tomatoes to use as rootstocks for grafting - not sure if I will even buy any of these as they could be a waste of money, I have done almost zero gardening over the last 4 months :-(
