  • or a garden - If you've got any seeding potatoes that need a new home I'd be most appreciative

    • the plans for the perfect pickled beetroot are in full swing -

  • Noakes' laugh.........., thankyou for that pic! r.e spuds, nah, sorry good luck.

  • I've got the space if you've got the spuds Wayne!

  • ^ Great sentence... :]

  • haz space - needz spudz

    [seederz]

  • I might have some spare runner beans if you want those to finish the dish off Snowy

  • Got no space left Big Daddy. all full up of good stuff.. spuds are for the poor ;)

  • you mean rocket dont you?

  • ya muppets - I've got the growing space, just looking for some seeder spuds to put into me growing space

    whatchya got for haughtycultural swappage Pip?

  • shit man thats all you had to say!
    We are transplanting out a whole heap of stuff today. broad beans/cauli/berlotti/red chard/asparagus pea.. in fact nearly everything shot.

    we has no room for any new plants but i'll stick a load of seedlings in a tray for you.
    you in during the week?

  • get yourself down morrisons
    buy a 5kg bag of maris piper
    get the 5 biggest spuds and just plonk them in the ground
    they'll take care of the seeding themselves
    i chucked some out on the compost heap a month or so back and they are already in full leaf and growing
    alternatively your local garden centre

    Sweetness - I'm gonna hit up Big Red for some chilli plant action as well

  • ^^ wot he said. Can you actually eat that amount of spuds Wayne? You get a lot out of those sack things.

    But, you have prompted the thread that Jayloo and I were talking about a while ago. Plant swap

    I'll have some sunflowers in a week or so if anyone wants any?

    Will have lettuce spare (various) in about 2 weeks once I plant them out, plus hopefully some spinach, parsnips, beets, sweetpeas etc.

  • I like your thinking - I've managed to grow too many chilli plants again this year -Super Chilli (Capsicum annuum) and 'Kevin out of the office' variety - which were also quite hot.

    I know that later on when I repot everything using my worn compost I'll get a tonne of unplanned tomato plants too.

    Anyone up for seed swapping too? I know I rarely manage to use all the ones I have - I've also got a load of wildflower seeds too.

  • BRM is the man with the chillis from hell. I'm still working my way through last years crop from him, and should think about potting up some of the seeds, but everytime I do, June Carter's Ring of Fire pops into my head.

    I'd love some wildflower seeds though, and will have heaps of forgetmenots in exchange.

  • Off the top of my head I've got some Bergamot, cornflowers, poppy, wild garlic (for the autumn)vipers bugloss and a couple of others ... I tend to use them for a bit of guerilla gardening every now and then as I have little room on my balcony.

    I'll do a list.

  • poppy...... Sweet!

  • Please can someone take some tomato plants off my hands. I have a million too many. Lovingly raised and ready to plant out, but the majority now need saving before I chuck them on the compost. I also have spare runner bean plants and courgette plants. Pick up Brockley :)

  • I'll take some of those, we've been really slack getting our terrace veggie plot together... This would be perfect... :]

  • Think I'm in the same boat with the tomato plants.

    Some chilli would be nice.

  • Anyone got any mint?

  • OK Joe, there's plenty, come round!

  • Hmm, Hops I'd love some too. I'll ask Cleftalicious if I can borrow her trailer!

  • They're about 6-8 inches high at the mo, (in plastic cups as i ran out of plant pots), i suppose you could put a few cups in a larger pot inside a carrier bag and transport them off your handlebars without hurting them. PM me for address.

    Anyway, sorry, has anyone got any seeding potatoes for BDW? :)

  • East Dulwich: Free organic seed potatoes and onions

    I've only got a window box thing going on so far this year, but have one or two teeny tiny bell pepper and basil seedlings going spare if anyone wants to do swaps?
