Hi Italophile,

I will save some seed and try them that way. I thought the were like the British Breakfast Tomato especially as there are 60 tomatoes per truss, so maybe they are very small. If I save seeds now will they last until next spring to sow them? If so I will dry them out and I will send you some if you want them.

Got gorgeous tomatoes today from the veg shop. tiny little ones, 1/4 the size of cherry toms. TOMBERRIES. Has anyone grown  these? I found a website that sells them, Robinsons. They have a great selection of different types of tomatoes. Has anyone ever bought from this site? I wonder would they grow the same if I saved the seed from the ones I bought?

Sorry folks, I just read the square where the seeds should be and it says "For distribution reasons, we regret that seeds are not available outside the U.K."

Sorry folks, forgot to say I am in the Republic of Ireland. But that shouldn`t be a problem because everyplace sells seeds eg. Unwins and Thompson & Morgan. They have to come in from abroad same as the mag. I don`t think anybody is taking them, cause all the other magazines have their seed still on them.

Morning folks,

I buy the GW magazine every month, but the free seeds are never on it. Asked the newsagent about it and he said they are never included with it. I was in Tesco this morning and the same thing - no seeds- so asked the manager why and he didn`t  know either. All the other mags have the seeds on them, I wonder why GW ones are missing.

Please can anyone tell me what this is.

I used old window boxes to put geraniums in    for the winter, takes up less space, and got 10 into each one. The info above is great, will do that.  BTW I hate the smell of geraniums, but the look great in pots, and are so longlasting.

Thanks folks, will do that.

Why are geranium seeds so dear?  last year I got 96 plugs for £20.90, but the seeds for Moulin Rouge are 6 for £3.69. Last week I cut back all the ones I had to get them ready for the greenhouse for the winter, but I never noticed any seeds.   Didn`t take any cuttings because I was going to buy seeds. Now to buy or not to buy!!!
