Oh dear,  will the seeds I'm after all be gone by the time I get my request in?  I only have a debit card so it's paper list and a cheque for me.  I found it so easy to do the AGS one online last year as they do accept debit cards.

Roma, sadly it is too costly for the SRGC to set up a capacity to accept debit card payments.
The Club is very careful to minimise costs and work within budgets.

A reminder that our sister society across the Atlantic has a super facility on their website, which may be very useful when making seed choices.... it is a link to the Seedlist Handbook:

I paid for my order with Visa Debit on line last night and received confirmation. I also used the card last year without any problem. I don't recall seeing the Maestro symbol however so it presumably depends which type of card you use.

This is the first time for me to participate to seed exchange, and I'm very excited. So many seeds to choose from!! :) I have a question about surplus seeds: do I need to order them at the same time now, or can I order them later? Will there be a smaller list of seeds left for the surplus ordering?
Another question is that I don't quite understand who needs to send  stamped addressed envelope? I don't think it is possible for me (from Finland).

Hi Paul, that's good to know.... I do know the Maestro doesn't work.

Leena, you should order the Surplus seed at the same time,  even though it will be sent later.  The surplus seed is ordered from the same list.... some seeds may be out of stock , that is why is it a good idea to choose blocks of numbers to allow for a greater selection.

You can email me with any other queries you may have, of course ...   info@srgc.org.uk

You are right Maggi about Prof. Pawley's ways being a mystery to many. In the first place he refused to accept that I was donating a dwarf form of Clematis fusca (dwarf? Can't be fusca) until someone else also donated seed of the same very dwarf (30cms) herbaceous form. Even a reference in Barry Fretwell's book "Clematis" didn't seem to convince him.

Then I sent seed, among others, of Gaultheria prostrata v. pentlandii, listed OK but also of an entirely different Gaultheria which I sent as Gaultheria ?species crimson (or red) fruit aging to black). This is not listed at all, only two forms (mauve and purple) of G. prostrata. Either he has renamed mine for no reason or he has omitted it altogether. This second unidentified Gaultheria is an outstanding plant and well worth growing from seed (very easily) but G. prostrata is is NOT!

Having said all this, I fully acknowledge the huge and arduous job the Prof does with the seed exchange but it does leave one wondering what is going on sometimes - see's John's post above.

Hi
I just want to say thank you very much for arranging the seed exchange and many thanks to all the seed donators! :)
I got the list in my mailbox and...wow  :o! Soo many seeds to choose from! I hope that i get some of my first choices, but there were so many treasures that the packet will be exiting whatever comes my way. I used VISA card and it worked fine. Do SRGC have Paypal account by the way? That is even easier to use.
Regards

Now I'm in real trouble because I didn't get my application finished yesterday and now can't find it, maybe I didn't log off but just closed it down so I thought I'd start again but can't because the password I chose is already registered and I can't just use a new one because my email address is already registered as well.

Begging for help here please.

I've just placed my order.

1634 Erythronium Craigton Cover Girl
1646 Erythronium japonicum
1653 Erythronium revolutum hybrid
1654 Erythronium revolutum Gods Valley
1799 Galanthus plicatus byzantinus
1908 Geranium pratense Splish-splash
2091 Hepatica nobilis japonica Kagiroi (bulb)
2093 Hepatica nobilis japonica Touyamasigure (bulb)
2285 Iris reichenbachii
2290 Iris schachtii
2419 Lewisia cotyledon Ashwood White
2420 Lewisia cotyledon Drakes Sunset strain
2952 Paeonia rockii
2954 Paeonia rockii hybrids
2955 Paeonia rockii linyanshanii

It is the first time I have taken part in the seed exchange and I expect I have chosen all the fashionable items that will be in short supply.

Where the hepaticas have (bulb) does that mean a plant rather than seed?

I don't know who has donated seed of Erythonium Craigton Cover Girl... but it iws worth making a point about this plant: all the seed we have raised from it has come VERY close to the original.... but it is always worth noting that there may be some variation out with the acceptable 10%  and for some cultivars there will be little resemblence. Happily the Cover Girl seeds should please you when they bloom!

The "bulb"  notice is just that.. a small plantlet/bulbil/rice ... these items are only available to members inside the European Union.
