Well yesterday I received February's copy of Grow It magazine through the post. I receive this every month since subscribing for free using my Tesco Clubcard vouchers.
As mentioned in a previous post, I have already, through my subscription, received a packet of tomato seeds to sew this spring, but this month's issue included even more. A pack of five different early sowing varieties of vegetable seeds: Carrot 'Early Nantes 2' (1000), Tomato 'Gartenperle' ( a small tumbling variety that look lovely and might be worth trying in a hanging basket this year)(10), Radish 'Rougette (140)', Onion 'Bedfordshire Champion '(100) and Salad leaves 'Winter Blend' (300) which can be grown in the winter months.
I probably won't use the onion seeds, as I have sown some onion and garlic sets already in my allotment in November, as the garlic needs frost to develop its multiple cloves, but all the rest will be sown as soon as weather allows. In total I think there are 1550 seeds in this pack which is great value when it has cost me absolutely nothing.
If you would like the onion seeds, there's 100 in the pack, I am happy to forward them on to someone, just drop me an email with your address (UK only I'm afraid) and the first address I receive I will send them off to with sowing instructions from the magazine. Please note that your address will not be passed on to any third party but used solely to post these seeds out to.
In addition, I received a couple of seed catalogues to leaf through in the warm and cosy comfort of my own home and daydream over, plus the magazine to read of course.
