That may be a good idea Richard. I'm just harvesting bean seed now, so if it were added it would have the winter to travel and then people could store it until required in the spring. What about dampness though? Couldn't that also cause seed to grow mould?

Did you know, that what you thought I said, was not what I meant :S

Sound like good ideas to me!

Would also love to be added to the list for any seed boxes other than #3, please :)

I have box #4 if you want this one. I plan to do some planting this weekend & am going into town this coming week so if you send me your address I can send it on to you :) There is so much I want to grow but most are not suitable for winter. Very keen to try the kamo kamo

Hi, I'd love to receive one of the seedboxes if there's one available to send at the moment. I've had #4, so any of the others would be great. Have plenty to add and am keen to plan some early sowing :)

Hi,

I would love to put my name back down for this. I have lots of fresh seeds to add to the box and excited to see what it is like now. I used to do the seed box in 2012.

Thanks
Nicola

I checked this thread just the other day and had the same thought, Hani.

In light of the earlier discussion in this thread, regarding seed viability possibly being lessened by travelling in hot vehicles during the warmer seasons, do you think it might be best to hold off sending out a new box until Autumn or closer to Winter? I too have a wide variety of seeds but have already done a lot of swaps so am left with enough seed for my own use. Later in the growing season I will save my own seeds and there will once again be an abundance to share :)

Seasonal timing might be a crucial part of successful seed box swapping.

I second that. I too will have more seed to swap after the summer
