Sorry Fermi, but I don't expect you'll be as keen to get armeria as I am lol.  I'm trying to get a National Collection together.  The list is now on line anyhow, so you will be able to browse the list and order now.

The last couple of years I've requested surplus seed along with my regular request for seeds.  Rather than waiting for the post with my seed list to arrive here in Canada I wanted to submit my request for seeds using a modified 2006/07 form. Would this be acceptable?

If I do this what is the extra cost for surplus seeds?  Previously it was 2 pounds stering for each additional 20 packets.  Is this still the rate that is being charged?

As most are aware the quicker I submit my list the more likely I'll get my first choices.

Rob,
I am pretty sure that overseas members get put to the top of the pile to componsate for the fact the post takes longer. It used to be Overseas Donor, Home donors, overseas non-donors, home non-donors, surplus seed requests.  Think it will still be the same.

Thanks for the encouragement Susan.  I did manage to get my request for seeds in the mail last evening.  Now it's just a matter of waiting.

Although, it would be the best to get my first choices I've never been disappointed with what I've received and it's just as exciting to get something I hadn't even considered as to get something I had placed a higher priority on. The arrival of those seeds during our cold snowy winters can't help but fill me with expectations of the new growing season even if it is sometimes an additional 4 months away.

Ya have to love this country - the great north strong & free.

I received mine yesterday and posted it back today.  Half my first choices were donations from Rafa - thanks Rafa for your generosity!

Still no sign of the hard copy, and while I have managed to make my selection on-line (thanks, Maggi, for the link) there is no form to download to send back the requests!
Can someone post a form that we can download? I know that we have to post it back by snail-mail, but the hard copy may still be in transit!
cheers

I agree with Fermi.  No hard copy here yet either. Have you received yours Lesley?  Please can someone scan an order form that we could download and post off by snail mail.

Thank you,

I've found a copy of the 2005/2006 form which I think is the same!
If the hard copy hasn't arrived tonight I may take my cahnces and use that!

I must say a big congratualtions to the Team to actually have the Seedex list out so quickly considering the closing date for SRGC donations is the last of the major Seedexes!
cheers

I am hoping to get a copy of the order form from this year's list to send you, but if you have an old one, please use that with a note attached to explain why! I will email you, Susan and Fermi, with a jpeg of last year's form which will help a bit meantime!!

Isn't this organisation the best?  I don't know any other gardening org. (and I belong to the lot) that will go this far to make sure members are served.  Maggi, you are really a star!!!!
