Seed swap

Posted: 13/12/2012 at 22:45

I'd be interested in veg seeds.

I've a few different varieties of bean seeds spare - purple podded and yellow plus yard long red noodle, best grown in a GH.blackeyed cowpea and Hyacinth beans. 

Chilli seeds - Apache and cayenne.

I'd like some sweet pepper seeds, a variety which can be grown in a GH bed and grows fairly tall.

What's the weather like in your area?

Gardengirl. The shed was dark brown to start with so after an undercoat painted it a very pale green. It wasn't quite what I wanted, the paint seemed to slip off the undercoat and the undercoat didn't go on very well either.

Growingspuds for Chistmas...

I find if growing for one or two people, growing in bags is ideal especially If you don't have an allotment or much room to grow stuff. I've found summer grown spuds a really  reliable crop too, and 1st, 2nd and main have always done well in bags. This year for instance I didn't need to buy a spud from June till November and grew five different varieties none of which could be bought locally.

Bitterly cold all day and freezing tonight. At work someone had parked their car all day in the car park and had to scrape ice of the windscreen come home time.

 Just want to add when the original Q was asked, I was fully expecting to be in the UK  for the worst of the weather over the New Year and had visions similar to last year,slipping and sliding on ice but I'm now going to Tenerife.

 It's along story but to cut to the chase, was asked a couple of days ago if I'd like to take the place of some who can't go, it wasn't a difficult decision to make and we've changed the flight names today so I'm going to climates warmer.

Your advise has still been good, I've friends coming down from Scotland after the New Year, staying whilst I'm away, and advised my road maybe closed off, they change their car tyres to a winter grip and are confident the weather conditions here in the NW won't be worse than Aberdeen.
