Well I got my confirmation through, so I do recommend that folk still try to sign up as it seems that they haven't hit 10,000 yet...

The web site just talks about signing up to the newsletter so I guess all the seeds have been allocated now.

Well, the seeds arrived yesterday, and having said that I would 'do anything' for free seeds, I'm a bit underwhelmed. One packet of Gardeners delight (I already have two packets) and a packet of carrot seeds (I can't grow carrots easily in cold clay)

Likewise a bit underwhelmed. But what can you expect for free I guess. I have had more free packets of gardener's delight than enough. I even grew some once, but I wasn't very impressed - watery and split very easiily. Not to my taste.

Queer carrots though. They seem to be for overwintering. Never seen that before.
