      I have been mostly buying blight resistant tomato seed, following this year's bad season.

        Let's hope you have more success with those. I've given up trying to grow tomatoes here as I don't have a greenhouse now and the climate isn't good enough to ripen them.

        My seeds arrived today. The only veg I grow are runner beans and they were sent to me by a family member. Not having them to hand I think they're Scarlet Emperor.

        Edit: Asclepias Tuberosa is already sown and stratifying in pots on the front door step.

        Flower seeds for next season from Chilterns.....

          Still got some of your GD tom seeds so no need to buy any for next year :biggrin:

          Received a 2022 copy of Kings and Suttons large catalogues, such a vast choice, some Sweet Peas top of the list ....

                They look nice @Lem very unusual with the purple colouring.

                I'll order my seeds first week of January, already jotted what I am after and from where nothing special so far. I did buy some seeds from chiltern seeds they have a sell off at the end of the season, I got 20 random pack of seeds some I wouldn't of grown otherwise , closest I've felt like a kid on Christmas opening the parcel of random packs of seeds and seeing what I've got :).

                  after making a bold statement that I wont be bothering with toms in 2022 I've now got seeds of F1 Crimson crush, F1 Tomande and F1 Oh Happy Day, stupid prices for eight or ten seeds per packet.
                  Also got Broad bean master piece green longpod.

                  Aloe polyphylla.

                  Probably get more as the season gets closer.

                        Just received my 30 packets from Alpine Garden Society. Woo hoo! This year I was lucky enough to get some pleione 'Kate' bulbils and calochortus barbatus rice grains in the order. I never remember what I've asked for so it's always a bit of a surprise.

                            Just planted the last of the garlic from Marshalls. It was time for a fresh batch of bulbs. About 150 :doh:cloves planted up in rootrainers.

                            Will only keep about half, the strongest looking ones when planting up time comes.
