If your new to the hobby start with cacti like Rebutia and Mammillaria. They are relatively easy to grow and will flower within a few years.

Hi,

I've got quite a big collection as it is. 100+, not sure of most of the species though, so would like to give growing from seed ago, so I can keep track of what species i have.

Hi,

My seeds arrived today (a lot quicker than I expected) more than half of what I ordered was sold out (including my subs) so I'm now left with a big credit note.

Does the list get regularly updated throughout the year, or will I have to wait till next year to use my credit note? If it gets updated I assume we will get sent a new seed distribution list?

Cheers

Hi Debbie

In order to use the Forum Seed Pool you need to look at the first post in order to see what seeds are on offer and then follow the ordering instructions there.

It seems as you have got the BCSS annual seed distribution mixed up with the Forum Seed Pool.
The seed distribution is issued just once a year with the December journal and the sooner you order the more chance that you will get everything you wanted and not have such a large credit note.

Seeds on the Forum Seed Pool are a separate thing and are free of charge so see the first posting here for details on how to apply.

Good luck with the sowing

After a bit of a flurry of requests, I have now managed to get the stock counted and the list updated. What you now see is exactly what I have available.

There isn't a huge amount left now, so please can members consider making a donation of seed for others to use.

I must apologise for the delays over the last month or so, caused in part because of a house move, and partly because I hadn't realised that I had clearly omitted to update the list after some orders in the autumn last year.

A big thank you Chris for sending me some of the seeds kindly donated. Can't wait for the weather to pick up so I can get them sown! Debbie
