Yes soak before popping, ive sent you a PM

Comment by Donna on August 13, 2016 at 12:36pm

Do you mean soak it before popping? I wouldn't think so? But I have heard (and try to) soak before sowing them to grow helps them germinate. These seeds might be 3-4 years old? Or at least, that's when I got them (from our local permaculture group seed bank).

I was given some pop corn seed from a lady in Nelson, but it didn't pop too well, are you suppose to soak the corn first?. So how old is the seed you have

Comment by Donna on August 13, 2016 at 11:04am

Hi Richard, I do have popping corn - black and strawberry. Unfortunately the seed is quite old though so I'm not sure on how viable they are. I was planning to plant one lot out fully this year, with the hope some would germinate and I could refresh/increase my seed supply. Then grow the other next year with the same hope (trying to avoid cross pollination and don't have the time/space to grow both varieties this year!). Perhaps I could send you one lot and if we are successful we could exchange some back at the end of the season?!

Donna , i have Early Gem sweetcorn and purple asparagus seeds, i'm after popping corn if you have any.

Comment by Donna on August 12, 2016 at 10:58pm

Hi, is there any chance anyone has some Early Gem sweetcorn seeds? I'm also after purple asparagus seeds and anything from the Moschata family (squash) as well. Have loads to swap :)

Hi all, I'm trying a few seeds saving groups as I'm looking for some particular Corn seeds to purchase - Silver Platinum. Appreciate any help.

Thanks Hester, that would be fantastic! I'll keep my fingers crossed.

Kelly, I got some Siberian seed from Niche seeds but unfortunately I haven't been able to do much gardening in the last 3 years and only got one seed to germinate from the ones I sowed. I have a few seeds left which I will try but don't have great hopes for viability. If they do germinate I may be able to send you a plant. Otherwise try Niche.
Comment by Kelly Ronayne on March 23, 2016 at 12:42am

Yes, unfortunately they only have Speckled Siberian tomatoes, which are a different variety. I may still try these if I can't get my hands on Siberian or Siberian Giant. Thanks!
