After seeing this thread I had a look in my local Wyevale garden centre and purchased a pack for £1.99 this afternoon.  They have now been sown in a deep pot in my greenhouse!  Fingers crossed!


Mmmm - we've got one just down the road, best have a look there first!
Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

Seeds are SOWN, planting's for plants (and bulbs & tubers)!

Well, if anyone cared to read my post you have probably a plenty of suitable seed in your cupboard for free. Seems a waste of time to post really. :lol:  :lol:

We read it, gobs, well I did anyway, but if people want to try a new variety - why try to stop them?

On the serious though, as I decided I'm old enough not to court anybody if not desparate:

1 - try anything 8)  but if you don't wanna spend it's nice to know anything already in your cupboard will do all the same

2 - try anything  8)  it's unlikely a variety gonna solve your carrot growing problems

I think I'm lightened up, Ice, I have plenty years of growing autumn carrot behind me. Or does that make me old -fashioned? :shock:  :lol:

None at Brookside Dave,  they stock them but are out of stock .

I've got a dozen packets from our local Wyevale, so it's only going to be the cost of the seed £1.99 + 36p for a 1st class stamp.

I'll PM everyone for details.

There are 11 people wanting them, so have one packet spare. Any takers! First come, first served.
