    Default VSP - Peas, Beans, Flowers and Herb Seed Lists

    [CENTER]The Virtual Seed Parcel of Peas, Beans, Fruit, Flowers and Herbs is open to all Grapes with a UK return address, that have been a member for at least 3 months and have made 50 posts prior to their swap.
    The PBFFH VSP will be open From 1st Nov - 28th February.

    A Maximum of 20 packets of seeds can be sent out of the VSP at a time. There is no limit on the number of packets sent in, however common varieties may not be accepted if there is already stock in the VSP. (It is advised you offer those on the open forum)


    The instructions:


    If you have seeds to swap, have a look at the seed lists and draw up your wish list.

    Please write legibly on each of your packet of seeds (where required):
    Type
    Variety
    No of seeds (approx. 10-15 for P+B)
    Your Vine name
    Sow by dates or date seeds collected
    Anything else you think is needed; such as 'self saved', 'Mr Fothergills' etc.

    Please make sure the packets that you send in are actually sealed.

    Then put your request on http://www.growfruitandveg.co.uk/gra...sts_91832.html thread stating what you would like and what you have to offer. I will then PM my address for you to send your swaps to.

    When you send your seeds, you need to also send:
    postage stamps to cover return postage (excess postage stamps will be returned);
    a label with your return address ;
    your 'want' list with your name and your Grape name on it.

    I will be reusing envelopes/bags, so please make sure they are not falling apart at the seams! (There is no kitty or buffer for the VSP so you need to ensure you send what is needed for the safe return of seeds )

    Please put a sender's address on your envelope when sending seeds, so that if they get lost they come back to you.

    So in essence:
    Pack your seeds and label them:
    Choose your seeds from the lists.
    List what you want
    Post on the request thread
    Send your seeds with stamps & address label
    Wait for the Postie

    Happy Swapping.
