Free Seeds Giveaway!

It's been such a gorgeous day here - Spring is well and truly arriving :)  I've been pottering around outside and planted up loads more seeds ready for this season's harvest of pretties and noms.  I've been happily flicking through seed packets seeing which are ready to be sown now, and which ones I need to be patient with for a little longer.  There is something magical about seed packets with their glorious pictures of "when I grow up" on the front.

Anyway, amongst them I found some I'm not going to plant - either because I already have a zillion packets (rocket) or because I've already planted a different variety (tomatoes) or because I really don't like the finished veg enough to grant it precious soil space (sprouts!).  They came with the seed potatoes last year, need sowing by the end of April and are good until 2012.

The seeds are: Wild Rocket, Tomato (Moneymaker), Tomato (Gardener's Delight) and Brussel Sprouts (Falstaff - a purple variety).

Um.  I took a picture of them for you.  But my mind was still thinking "must plant more" instead of "clean table up a bit, remove coffee mug which I was unable to carry from kitchen to garden without spilling before taking pictures".  Sorry.  It's my favourite coffee mug too, and very apt ;)

(ooooh, Blogger has finally altered photo-shoving-in tool to shove them in where cursor is rather than dumping them all at the top of the blog!  Wooo!)

I have two sets of each of the 4 packets of seeds to give away.  As they're seeds, you need to be in the UK to enter.  Just leave a comment and I'll do a random drawing at the end of the week.  Make sure you leave some way of letting me contact you.

I feel a bit nervous doing this - not sure if anyone apart from the lovely Anita stops by here on a regular basis!

Right, back to the garden to clean up after myself!

Edited to add - thank you to the Ravelers who've come to my rescue on this one!


  1. That is such a lovely idea!! I love growing things with my lil girlie ^__^ She usually just sows the seeds then waters them when they need it. I would love to be considered for the seeds (and yes Im in the UK)

  2. ah you still have no comments! Well I would love any seeds!

  3. This is a great idea! I've just started looking into growing plants with my tutor for science so this would be great!
