Can I just say that I put some seed packets in which were officially out of date, but had been stored in sealed up tins with silica gel sachets inside, so were nice and dry...and I only put in seeds which I know are long lived..( ie not parsnip!)

Hope that is ok with any of you who were wondering which cheapskate stuck in old seeds.......

and I grew stuff from all of them last year!

I did ask, Jelly, but Mrs N hasn't replied yet...

maybe..it crept in while on route from her to me? and is nothing to do with her...

maybe it wants to be planted? and it read that we were doing this ..and wanted to join in?

maybe my cold cure is making me think odd things......

Maybe the next person to get the packet should just plant it and let us all know what happens!

Hmm that could be an idea, I must admit I thought it was Cws' artichoke bits so didn't take any as I have an idea I might just have some growing in my compost this year...

Just to say I've posted off the package, it's kind of going south and sideways from here

oh and whoever does it next, don't do what I did and forget to put the list back in BEFORE you seal it up :geek: had to undo it all and slip it back in

Forgot to say that the jiffy bag full of seeds arrived with me yesterday. I'll go through it this weekend and try to get it back on its way on Monday!

I failed at getting it in the post yesterday, but have just been through it and am about to package it up and get it back on its way in a northwardly direction (assuming the post office hasn't shut early today!)

Excellent - glad it arrived OK. Managed to hand it to the post man as he walked out of the post office to ensure it went on its way on time!
