    My seeds keep failing to germinate for the past two years and haven't really got much time to try again.

    If anyone has any spare they don't want I will happily grow them on. Would pay for postage too.

    @Zigs I might be in (Somerset then) Dorset in the preceding week, so could get some in PDQ (propagator, then lights) to be taken to Shineyland via Dorset with some 8 week old seedlings. @Jungle Jane any preferences as to varieties?

    Cor, foodmiles has got nothing on this!

      Oh no, I composted my spare seedlings when I pricked out the best. I still have a few spare up my sleeve in case my grafting experiments fail. You are welcome to those but it won't be till May until I know if I don't need them, by which time they will be pretty big plants.

      Hi Jane, I've not sown my tomatoes yet, I've been meaning to do them all week but not had time....that's my main job for the weekend :dbgrtmb:. I don't know if you have an Aldi near you but they are selling them at a reasonable price at the moment.

      Change of plans.

      I moved my propagator into our kitchen and now all the seedlings have come up. Perhaps I will have a glut of tomato plants now and I went and sowed a second batch.

      :doh:
