Don't forget to bring all your excess seeds with you to the DS weekend so we can have a massive seed swop

I have quite a few

Will anyone give out of date seeds a try, or shall I put them in the compost?

if no one wants the out of date seeds i am happy to have them for work, we get the old dears out in the sun and plant up small pots with seeds and any that do germinate either get put in the garden or sold at the reception to raise funds but if none come up we just empty out the pots and do it again, and again, and again so they get to do something in the sun when its out.
if anyone actually wants to try and grow them let them have first dibs but rather than the compost heap we would love them.

I will bring enormous quantities of sugar snap peas for the taking. I also have two small pea plants (not sugar snap) if anybody would like (and if Fee has space for them in the car).

Good God - I thought from the title of this thread Jocorless had set up a sperm bank for the weekend...

Don't you DARE! Last year I successfully grew parsley dated 'best before 1984'!

There are lots of flower seeds in there that somebody gave us when we first got our allotment, dunno why I never bother to grow flowers, seems like a waste when there's space needed for veggies

Pilsbury's old dears will appreciate them much more I'm sure.

I'm sure we can make sure there's room, Hamster, even if they have to sit on Paul's kite buggy...which is where my little plants might be sitting too
