Looking back in this thread I see I was struggling with a cold last year when the seed swap parcel arrived. And this year - same again ! Sorry, I will get around to sorting it out soon ...

I presume I am next, CH, so please don't hurry on my account. Take as long as you need.

Nearly back to rights.

I've had my rummage ... I assume it is Freebird next, it usually is, but I seem to have lost the address. Hopefully someone more organised will remind me ...

I will get around to posting these seeds on to Freebird soon, honest. Sorry FB Embarassed - work panics are overriding most things at the moment.

Seed pack arrived this morning, thank you. Had a quick look. Nice to see quite a few saved-seed packages. Definitely going to try the Tutankhamun peas.

You can start the Tutankhamun peas quite early in pots, if you have a cold frame/greenhouse, and plant them out later. They are quite tall growing (and VERY delicious!)

Recommendation for King Tut from here. I'm a pretty useless pea grower but have been successful with these and I've managed to save seed - twice.

...and the seed pack is back with me again! I'm looking forward to trying a few things (but not until after the family wedding at the end of March: everything has stopped for that!)
