Yay, we were kindly given a £50 voucher for Jungleseeds last year and hadnt used it until tonight. Ordered lots of seeds for normal fruit and veg but also some really nice specials such a Custard apple, hardy pawpaw, cobra lilies, black toms, etc etc

Getting exited now as its been sunny all week here and quite mild (minus the wind)!

Always an exciting thing, choosing seeds and ordering. But wait until you get them delivered... :lol: I just got them a few days ago and the indoor sowing frenzy has started.

Hope you get great results with the exotics. Let us now!

Very exciting indeed. We just received our seeds too. :cheers: :cheers: :cheers:

Need to finish decorating the new conservatory so we can plant the seeds. Hoping to paint it Friday nite and then take kids to Garden Center for some fruit bushes and compost on Mother's Day :flower: :flower: :flower:

Need to get busy digging and building raised beds in time to plant potential seedlings too ! :roll:

I ordered some pak choi and salad onions that I had forgotten on the first order. They turned up today with packets of leeks, swedes, onions and beetroot, all for free! :thumbright:

They sound exciting, I'm still using seeds from last year. I think I got a bit carried away in a seed sale at the garden centre we go to sometimes :roll: :?

Next year maybe I can have a browse through a catalogue and get to order, but knowing me I'll probably see a load on sale this year and be left with them to plant next year again. :oops:
