We each need to send 8 packets of each variety , does that sound right ?

Can I apologise. This has been a hard few months and I have not stepped foot in garden all that time/ havent harvested seed. I hadnt thought of coming on to withdraw.
Hope you all have a great 2017 but I will be of no use this year with seed.

Do you have a PayPal account? I'm in Ireland so can't buy uk stamps, if not I'll get my parents to post stamps x

I'm having to drop out due to illness, unfortunately. Thanks to having some medication poisoning me, I wasn't able to do anything all summer except watch the weeds grow. Which they did. I'm halfway through sorting my beds out for this year, but I haven't started on the hedges yet.

Hi all,

I haven't been around for some time, sorry.

I'm wondering if it's too late to join at this stage. My seeds are shop-bought, and I don't know if that qualifies me or not. None have been opened as they're the sale ones from end of season last summer. If interested, I'll reply with my list.

Since we' ve had a couple nt make it I'd be happy to swap for bought seeds, I think the issue will be that each bought pack probably won't have enough seed to go around 7 of us and so you might end up sending us all your seed that are your faves and getting home grown seed from us that are not nec what you want to grow.
For each variety I'm sending I will be sending n-1 packs of seed where n is the number of people in the circle, so if I send three varieties and there are 7 of us I would send 18 packets. What does everyone else think? X sunloving

I've packed up blue boy corn flowers , cerinthe, and pink mixture antirhynums so far.

Iridium , as  Sunloving says if you think you can divide by 7 that includes you ,each pack that would work and if you can let us know ASAP as I think we need to call time now . I'll pm you .
So everyone we are going to be 6 or 7 I'll let you now ASAP and shall we go for it!
Cheers
