    I enjoy the Chilterns catalogue as it has humour as well as great goodies.  Plant World have good things too.  If you belong to the RHS you can also get seeds from their seed collection and distribution service.

    Shan't be ordering any myself thiough as I find I have an embarassment of seeds in my box, both bought and collected - the perils of sorting out the garage and organising the new womanshed.  I shall be good and sow those and see what grows before I buy any new ones.

    I've resisted so far this year obelixx. I didn't order from the Hardy Plant Society.

    I have loads to sow from the seed swap last year, some were autumn sown and some of those have germinated already. I see an out of control pricking out/potting on/space available situation looming again.

    But then I look at Chiltern and PW and they've got some exciting seeds. Maybe I won't look

    That's what worries me too Nut.   Too many babies and not enough space to prick out and pot on till they're big enough to fend for themselves in the garden.  I'll be working on that when the weather improves - making a new work and grow space behind the garage so they're more easily supervised.   No frost protection yet though so no point getting excited too early.

    I lost my big growing on space along side of the house last year. It's shaded from about midday, just right. New drains had to be laid. But I've got it back this year and it looks an enormous space. I know how quickly I can fill it.

  • Obelixx, Nut, Dove, you all KNOW that no amount of slapping on wrist stops that NEED to buy more seeds. However many are in your (now massive) box. You know, the box that started as a margerine tub, then a biscuit tin, and is now probably a big plastic box from poundland or similar! But the space for the plants gets no bigger! My back lawn gets smaller every yr. I'm going to give lots of baby plants to charities, the school, etc so they can raise money from my obsession, but I'll still have the fun of growing them. Except soon, I'll need to cover the whole garden with a polytunnel!

    I go on seed swaps to get rid of some, then end up with more. Like knitters with wool, (or any crafters, really!!!)

  • I have to agree I went and bought only two grow bag trays yesterday and found my self coming out with two extra packets of weeds with them I can't stop buying seeds

    but I like the idea of giving away to schools I already give to friends and family

    I have more seeds than garden but is that going to stop me no way

    I even have veg seeds but no where to grow them yet LOL

    Nut what's that number image

    clueless

    I think it's too late James, we're too far down the slippery slope
