Vegetable Seed Swop

Zoomer - I thought they might be Marshalls mini pop as I bought quite a bit of stuff from them but they are Johnsons.  If you are still interested PM me with your contact details and I'll pop them in the post.

Hello Lyn - no, I found that mini pop plants grow really tall, even taller than normal sized sweet corn.  I don't know if Zoomer's grew like that too.

Zoomer - I can't remember where I got them from and it's a bit dark out there tonight.  I will look tomorrow and let you know.  You are more than welcome to have the seeds as I think you and I were growing them for the first time this year.

Oh dear.  I bought a coreopsis this year which is a beautiful deep pink ,so does that mean I have to dig it up and keep it somewhere sheltered overwinter?

Vegetable Seed Swop

The seed and plant swop thread is doing really well, but seems mainly to be flowers so I thought a vegatable thread could be separate as folks will be saving bean and other seeds just now.

To start it off I have Sweet Corn Mini Pop seeds (38) in original used packet viable up to 2015.

Talkback: Dealing with bindweed

Posted: 14/09/2014 at 13:36

I have used Glyphosate, bought from Wilkinsons about a month ago, on bindweed that was infesting the edges of the allotment fruit frame round my strawberrys and fruit bushes.  I covered the fruit with a heavy duty cover (an old boat cover) and sprayed the leaves.  Three weeks later all the bindweed has died back.  If it pops back up in the spring I will do the same again, but hopefully the killer has gone down into the roots.

Does anyone want to try Sweet Corn Minipop.  These are tiny sweet corn cobs that you harvest when they are 4ins long and used in things like stir fries.  I grew them this year but husband didn't like them so I won't bother again.  Consequently I have 38 seeds left over which I didn't use and they are marked as sow by 2015.

Anyone interested?
