This year, seed distribution work has been hampered by bad weather.  Last week, much of the Midlands had 15-25cm of snow and the temperature at Pershore last Monday night was -14C. However, thanks to helpers contributing extra days picking seed orders, we are now back on track.  We posted over 700 orders yesterday so they are now on their way to members worldwide.  We have still lots more orders to fill, but work on those will recommence after the Christmas and New Year break. 
Big thanks are due to all the members who donate seed, and the helpers who receive seed, sort, check and number seed, and  make up the seed orders.

Seed received yesterday in great condition

Just wanted to thank you all for the work done on the seed distribution. All seeds in tip-top condition and receiving them now gives me the opportunity to sow them before Xmas. Thank you all - great job. Simon

Excellent service and my seed (mostly 1st choices)  arrived on 21 December so in good time for sowing when the New Year festivities are over,,,,, Thanks to Diane and all the team.

Just adding my thanks to all concerned. Returned on Boxing Day to find nearly all mine hearts desires. Wonderful! Goodness, all that snow and -14C. Now in the balmy North-east.........!

I ordered the first possible day online and was a donor. My order has not arrived yet - should I start to worry?

Seed order

I also placed my order and paid by 12.10 am on the first day. Although I am not a donor I usually receive my seeds before christmas. Should I also be worried.

There is no need for any worries at this stage.  The date that orders are sent out is dependent on how many orders we receive on each day and how many helpers we have picking orders.  We did post out a lot of orders before Christmas, but we then had a 2 week break with no orders being sent out.  We are now back working again and more orders were posted out yesterday.  For enquiries about individual orders, please email me on
