Title: Browns seeds
Post by: ACE on November 23, 2021, 12:52:03
I don't do anything that involves Black friday, but some of you might, Brown Friday promises half price seeds from their basic range. I have had good results from these in the past. Just sign up to their newsletter, then when the seeds have come cancel it as they do spam you with a lot of junk.

Thanks for the tip.

I usually get the bulk of my seeds from Kings. But was disappointed last year about various issues. Have bought mostly from D T Brown for next season.

Had a really good crop of onions this year using D T Brown heat treated sets.

I had to smirk when I placed a late order for parsnips with DT Brown this year - I got a freebie packet and what was it? You guessed it, parsnip seed!

Yes, a variety called "Sabre" which have done very well for me. I'd given up growing parsnips but sowed them anyway "as they were there". I will try them again now.

Maybe I should have sown them instead? - I got bugger all from my parsnips, bar the five in pipes at home, and not a single swede either - this after a glut in 2019. Harumph!

You're not going to like this: I had a good crop of swedes too, from the out of date packet that's been sitting unopened for several seasons. Sorry!
