  • Flower Seed Circle 2019

    Who would like to join in a Flower Seed swap this year?
    Save seeds from at least 2 varieties of flowers (preferably not F1) enough so everyone in the circle can have some, bag them up at the end of the year, post them to me with some stamps (for small parcel excess stamps will be returned) for return postage and your forum name, and grow some luvly flowers from our gardens next year.

    Anyone interested?
    Closes to members on 31st October. Anyone who hasn't said what they have saved by 31st October will be removed from the list. Peeps must meet the vine swap rules by this date.

    Feel free to combine your circle seeds with my others circles (inc. those outside this forum) and the VSP.

    Struggling for starter seeds?
    I am happy to send some seeds in need of T.L.C. should you need them, however you will need to send an S.A.E.

              Me too please. I haven't saved flower seeds before but my plan was to grow more flowers this year so this is very timely! Do they have to be named varieties?

                Added No need to worry about varieties, isolation or if they come true for this circle (lovely if you do) but most of us are just happy to get more and any flowers on the go in our gardens

                    I am going to tentatively stick the rim of my hat in. Can I join please?! I got so many lovely and unique seeds from the last year's circle, not sure I can make a fair contribution.

                    This year I am trying nasturtium black velvet, asters, and mesembryanthemum for the first time. Also sowing datura they germinated but seem very finicky so I'm not expecting much 1st year.

                          I'd love to join although I don't think I will have anything particularly unusual or special to share. I'm planning to grow easy and common flowers this year.

                            Sorry for picking on you but I may have to start a new rule 'no punishing yourselves on your contributions!'

                            You have joined a brave new circle, be proud, any seed you save and share gets to live on in someone elses garden - because of you.I think that deserves a ruddy big pat on the back.

                            You have all been added

                              I have eryngiums that seed around a bit so as long as I remember to collect seeds when they ripen that could be one contribution.
