Thanks to all the members who have worked so hard to bring all of us another seed list of endless dreams!  My selections were made during that boring time of having ones hair "beautified"  (I hope!)

Charlotte: Great idea to read the list at the hairdressers'....... it's much more interesting than whether or not Tom Cruise has got married, which is the usual reading matter when I get my hair done!


Any new seed list is exciting... but I must say that our SRGC list and those from other specialist societies are really mouth-watering!  I hope to choose some species this year that I wouldn't normally try... maybe to be a bit more adventurous with what might like to live outside  here in Scotland.
Congratulations to Stuart Pawley for collating all the donations for the new SRGC Seed list. Good luck to those wonderful Volunteers packeting the seed, even as we speak. And, to the Distribution Team, revving up for the start of their task... are you taking your vitamins to keep your strength up?

I know that many people reading this forum will be involved in a seed exchange for their own speciality or society but perhaps the majority have no idea of the volume work put in by so many people to ensure the success of a seed exchange like ours.  Even if you do believe in  elves and fairies, I can assure you that in truth, nothing is acheived by magic, it all takes hard work ! Well done, all you Seed Folk, especially the donors... it couldn't happen without you!

Hasn't arrived down here yet, perhaps by the end of the week. How can I wait? Hopefully an online version will be available next year.

Seed list has arrived here today.  Looks scrumptious - am now looking for the list of must haves.  This is going to keep me out of the garden all day!

Mine's here too (22nd). One small query if any of the adminners or seed people are out there. Roger and I have a family subscription and in the past have applied for and received 2 doses of seed, accounting for the extra sub. Is this still the case? and if so, does one need to photocopy the form and fill out that as well? There's no indication anywhere in the list and the spaces for choices are hardly enough to cope with 2 applications unless every number asked for, was sent.

Hi there, we are just in the process of putting down what seeds we would like off the seed exchange. We have lost our year book and can not find page 2. Can anyone help and let us know what is on page to before we send off the list.
Many thanks Ellen and Dan

How's that? Obviously you can't read it till you click it to make it expand!

Hi there;

Just received my list here in Canada and was wondering if the listings with a bulb symbol beside them can be sent to Canada? I'm guessing no, but hoping yes.

Hi, Lori, sorry for delay. The items marked with a green oval in the online seed list , or with a little black bulb-shaped icon in the paper seedlist are designated as "live" material... that is: these are frit. rice, pleione bulbils etc and cannot be sent outwith the E.U.  So, you were correct, you cannot have those sent to Canada... you will have to have seed items instead! Not good news if you are a pleione lover, I grant you, but there is nothing to be done about, I'm afraid... rules is rules!!
Enjoy making your choices : I'd advise you all to get your orders in sooner rather than later !
