Those members receiving their Journals by post need to REGISTER by first accessing the system via  the password in Journal 133 (on page 5)-

but please note - a mistake has been made in the password printed in the Journal: please note that the first two letters there should be in upper case, the next four in lower case - the password in the printed seedlist is correct........
after that they enter their full details and choose a personal password and will activate their seed accounts. If the activation email does not appear to arrive, please check the spam filter online on your email provider's site - such automated emails can be caught up in that way by some providers. After activation, postal members will then LOG IN with their membership number and their own personal password.

 Those members holding an "E-subscription", who only access their Journals online,
  LOG IN with their e-number and the personal password they use to access journals.

Done. And I thought I was being attentive, checking every day .. but I find I've missed the start gun by over 24 hours!! lol.

You should arrange for signal guns to be fired all down the east coast, Maggi, at least from Aberdeen to Montrose!

Thank you for interesting seed list this year too.

My online order and payment process finished smoothly :) All that remains is receiving the seeds now :) :)

Perhaps I found a mistake in the seed list. The #2811 is described as “Narcissus clusii romieuxii petunioides”. If the seeds are from me, that is “Narcissus clusii cantabricus petunioides” ;)

These links to Google are very useful (in most cases) but can result in a lot of time not exactly wasted but used unproductively ;D  I spent a while studying Vireya rhododendrons.  Did you know there is one called 'Margaret of Scotland'?

To all who had problems to order seeds: Especially as a foreigner who's mother language is not English, it's hard to understand the instructions. But Maggi is always  around to help you out. A big hurray for her!!!
After 2 years having problems, this year was the first year I had no problems at all. Was able to complete my order within 15 minutes. So don't despair: if you have problems, Maggi will help you and after a while you will be able to do it all on your own.

A huge thank to the team who made it possible to order so easily.

I'm presuming you mean the seedlist, Graeme. The  printed seedlist is only sent out  in the UK to seed donors and  those UK members  who have specifically asked for it to be sent.
 If you requested a list  I would think it would  arrive by this week - I think John is probably correct in his guess when they were  sent out.
You have until mid December to request a paper list from Stuart Pawley, see the details on the first post of this  thread  ( Prof. Stuart Pawley, Acres of Keillour, Methven, Perth, Scotland, UK, PH1 3RA )
 but the list is available online both for anyone to browse - http://seedexchange.org.uk/srgcseedlist.pdf - and as part of the online ordering service. http://www.srgc.net/site/index.php/extensions/seed-exchange

thanks Maggi and John

not had any seed for years from the exchange as something work wise always gets in the way - but I really do need to get back into growing things from seed

Maggi you are a marvel, have you had any sleep in the last 24 hours?
Thanks to all the back room & seed distribution team, you all do a great job.

Well, you know I don't sleep well at the best of times, Mike!
I shut down this machine at around midnight last night - and had a European fellow furious this morning because at 7.30 in the morning he'd had no reply......  ::) :-X

I have just re joined after not being a member for about 18 years, what a huge change with the world of computer what a wonderful thing.
So happy to be back
