I think we should go for T & M. We should finalize a shared seed list and then distribute equally to all interested ones.
Its suggestion to save time.

We have a lot of time, lets work on T&M order then, what do you think about seedsbypost.co.uk, we can have a diverse order but i don't think they are offering discounted T&M seeds :?:

Good choices but i am concerned about some.

Primula vialii is a woodland short lived perennial, needs moist soil all the time and cool woodland climate which we don't have.

Delphinium will also be a waste of money, it needs down to zero chill period to form bloom spike.

Lewisia cotyledon is a succulent plant from the moss rose family that i have been longing to have for a long time but have read negative reviews about germination rate and taking care of the plant but i think it can perform well here because of the hot climate.

Malva merlin seeds you have already sent to me for the seed bank :D

Okay Primula dropped.
I would disagree on delphinium. This spring my delphiniums made buds when it got really hot and was the last one to keep blooming. Its still there and showing new growth from base which is really astonishing.
Regarding Lewsia decision is yours..what do you say?
Malva, actually i am looking for more colors. The one i sent you is pale purple type.

Fascinating, delphiniums did good then :)

as for Lewisia price is quite high for the risk, i have never seen or heard of this plant growing here... so final verdict rests with you :geek:

Guys,.. seedsbypost.co.uk deals with 5 vendors in UK and by dispersing the seeds among members we will eventually lower our overall cost in the group purchase so why do we have to go to 25% off and only 1 vendor T&M, postage is the same for both the suppliers, we can also go for seed collections they are good enough :idea:

We can also choose from supplier to supplier regarding seed count per pack and price and choose from which more members can benefit :!:
