ive ordered mine from ( seed direct ) at 95p , per packet we dont pay vat over here so the cost of vat pays postage. but in England they are post  free even peas and beans are 95p over here in guernsey they are three or four pound a pack

Again I would suggest looking at Moles Seeds for peas if you can't get to a local nursery. (I pay £3.99 a kilo which, type dependant, gives you up to 6,000 seed).

For a smaller quantity, Moles cost £2.80 for half a kilo (up to 3, 000 seed). You'd pay £9.50 for this quantity from Seed Direct.
Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

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

yes ordered all my seeds, tubers and the like a while back when two of my usual online retailers (sutton and TM) had free delivery and half-price seeds etc. I resent paying almost £5 for post and packing when the seeds theselves when at full price are not exactly the cheapest around, but when the offers are on that is when I go mad and clean them out!

I have lists and orders ready to go - just need some cash to come in so I can afford them. As usual I shall buy more varieties than you can shake a bamboo cane at - I know how you feel Mickwood - why do I need 5 types of beetroot!! :D :D never mind the 6 different beans, 5 peas... the list goes on...

I'd settle for being able to see the plot - i.e. NOT under inches of snow please ::) Managed to get there Sunday and get some winter celery and leeks. No chance now again for a while  :(

I bought a load today from a local shop mainly because I wanted something to do since I cannot see me getting anything done on the allotment for at least a week.
