Seeds bought in Foreign countries

Postby Zosherooney » June 28th, 2016, 1:38 pm

I bought some french green beans some time ago and had good results until the seeds ran out. I did try and keep some seeds from the beans but they did not work.

Today we visited the super market here in Croatia and collected 5 packs of seeds...... First tomatoes very long plum type, 2nd, a big fat tomato called red pear, 3rd, paprika a long and slimish (not chilli) called corno rosso. 4th, Ridge (and spiney) cucumber called pariski kornison, and 5th, paprika (a lemon/lime colour variety) called soroksari. Each of these packs seems to have very much greater number of seeds than I am used to and was 60p each!! :terrified:

Roll on next Spring !!!

not really a laughing matter what with the spread of disease and all that but you can bring five packets in anyway.
i bought in two x five hundred gram packets of gigantes beans last year, to eat, but i've planted some of those and hope to get a good crop to dry for eating and planting next year.
