Mine arrived (NZ) yesterday, the 16th. Jolly good for the other side of the world. Of my 25 first choices I received 21 and the 4 second choices would have all been firsts if I'd had room for them. So I'm a very happy bunny. One, a Gaultheria, looks a little larger and darker then I would have expected, and there are a lot of them, but time will tell.


Warm thanks to all donors and packers.

Take a photo of any you're a bit doubtful about, Lesley.

Good idea Diane. I might photograph the lot, on general principals.

I am also waiting and it is hard, but usually worth waiting for.
Kind regards

Thank you to all involved in the seed exchange.  This was my first year as a member and was impressed to find only one substitution which, I am pleased to have anyway.  So thanks again.

Received my second tranche of seeds today with a lovely little anonymous note from the packer. I was chuffed!

Once again many thanks to all the volunteers involved and particular thanks to the donors.

The 2010 Seed List will not be available until November of this year, after all the seed donations have been received and catalogued. If you are a member living in the States you will automatically get sent a copy of the list. I would expect the seed list and ordering ability to also be on-line again, but only for SRGC members of course  ;D
