I've Red Baron, Bedfordshire Champion and Golden Bear onion seeds from 2010, never got round to sowing them, would they still be viable to sow this year.

Sam. recieved the sweet pepper seeds today, thank you.

Yours should arrive tomorrow or the day after, posted mine the day after you posted. 

What's the weather like in your area?

NW - Dull and wet although mild enough to open the GH door today. The roof vent had leaked and a tray of sweet pea was almost over flowing with water so I hope it doesn't freeze tonight otherwise they maybe lost.

Rain- I've found a local garage selling those shoe grips, only £4.99 but they didn't have my size, supposed to be getting more in this week

It's rained all day here in the NW. Been out driving in it most of the day too. Was driving south on the M6 just before mid day in heavy rain and for some reason the over head signs were warning drivers of the sever weather conditions in the NE  giving the impression...if you think it's bad on this side of the country... it's even worse on the other side

Best runner bean

I tried Painted Lady and Scarlet Empire this year, they were both good croppers and tasty. Much prefer runner and french beans to broad beans.

Seed swap

Sam. I'd be interested in all three, what would you like to swap.

I also have some tom seeds, mainly common varieties but I do have some Xmas grape which is a nice cherry one.

How do we exchange addresses!
