Okay, so thanks to the generous contributions of the following members;

Kermitnz
Edenview
Hani Jami - Eggs on Legs
Blueberry
Morioka and
RichardW

we have two new seedboxes [8D][8D]

For those who don't know, a seedbox is just that - a box of seeds that is posted from person to person. Each person who receives it takes out some seeds and adds some back in. Seeds can be bought or collected. It is important that the seedbox is sent out within a few days (preferably 2 or 3) to the next person on the list. Seeds can be almost anything - no weeds and nothing illegal [:0][:0]

It's free, it's entirely voluntary and it works when all the people who want to use it, use it fairly.

So, if you want to be added to the list, post on this thread and I'll add you to the list.

Please bear the following in mind:

* If you ask for your name to be added to the list please be prepared to send the box on within a 3 day period.

*Send a private message or email to me (click on my name on the left for details) with your postal address as soon as you're added to the list.

* If you know you're not going to be able to pass the box on within three days, for example if you're going to be on holiday when it's due, then let me know immediately so the list can be re-jigged to keep the box moving. You can be moved a place or two down the list so you don't hold it up.

*Once the box has arrived, please let me know (again private message or email) and I'll send you the address you should send it on to.

*If you haven't got contact details of the person next in line within 3 days of receiving the box, send the box to PO Box 67, Hikurangi, 0150

* If possible please add seed to the box as this makes it more exciting and adds to the selection for everybody even if it is a packet of bought seed, every addition is appreciated.

Cheers and happy gardening
Kate
