    I've got garlic seeds :D

    I'm new to this, but as we have space in the garden this year I started to grow more than just mint and rocket.

    I can't believe I ordered 'garlic seeds' from the internetz, because they arrived yesterday and they were just garlic bulbs, doh! Surely I could have just grown the garlic I get from the supermarket?

    Anyway, if anyone has any spare strawberry seeds I'll have them.

    I have nothing to offer, yet!

    You at the clothes swap tomorrow? I've got some seeds, but not strawberry.

    Yep, bring the broccoli ones and I'll have them :)

    I measured the soil's PH and it seems to be between 6 and 7 - surprising I thought but I think maybe the previous owners did something to the soil. Anyway, things should grow well, in theory...

    :D just realised we might end up swapping seeds for tops - I like the sound of that. Who needs money, hey?

    Will do if I've still got them. Definitely have sprouting broccoli and carrots :)

    ok, bring them both, I'll have 'em.

    * Just reading up on different types of broccoli now :)

    ok, I'll bring whatever I'm not planting this year again - some things didn't work so well in pots and might do better in a garden.

    I'd like some calabrese and lambs lettuce. in return i can offer perpetual spinach, french beans (cherokee trail of tears and a flat variety called sophie's coco)

    Happy to just send them to you :) our roof seems to be plagued by snails and slugs, so nothing much survives (only doing spinach and courgettes this year)... will have another proper go at more veg when we live somewhere else.

    PM your address and I'll pop them in the post tomorrow. Sure you don't want any of the others?

    ok, will put the lettuce and calabrese aside for you :)

    Got these left for anyone that wants them...

    the french beans i have would survive slugs and snails - they work well grown up some canes if planted in a very big pot and are very prolific, plus quite pretty

    I have some mixed lettuce seeds, as there are 750 in a packet and I have plenty to spare.

    psycherelic I'm not an old hippy!

    I have chives, chervil, sage, thyme, purple basil, oregano, Italian parsley and rosemary.

    Could be interested in lettuce but I already have probably far more seeds than I'll ever have room for.

    So I also have:
    Peas, broad beans, green beans, carrots, radishes, beetroot, garlic and loads of other veg seeds.

    It's not a vegetable, but I have some honesty seeds that I will mail to anyone who wants some. It's a beautiful and very under-rated plant. Send me a message (? is that how this works) if you would like some. I also have some majorly sexy squash seeds.

    I'm interested in herbs.

    I'd be interested in some lettuce seeds if possible as I'm going to grow winter lettuce (experimental but I saw it mentioned somewhere else). I can swap for some thyme? (Not strictly a summer herb). Or mixed yellow/ green courgette. Or the above-mentioned.

    Ive got some squash seeds to give out.

    Ive also got a spare match book of chive seeds from WRCF-UK.

    Ive got some cuttings which have struck over the winter too.
