Monty’s Seed Exchange

As the days start to get longer and memories of my winter cruise sail off into the distance my attention starts to turn towards the garden once again. With Mrs Monty perusing the seed catalogs I’ve for once got in first and have received my seed order before her!


Having underestimated the number of seed potatoes in a bag I find myself with a surplus of Anyas. Anya is an early variety of potato grown exclusively for Sainsbury’s supermarkets by Albert Bartlett.  Also most of the seed packets have many times more seeds than I’ll ever have room for, even allowing for failures, so as usual I’ll likely be left with rows of potted up young plants and half used packets of seeds.

I’m sure many others will be in the same position so how about a seed and plant swop and exchange? First up would anybody like to try growing a few Anyas?

If you’re interested let me know. Also if anybody has surplus seeds/plants over the next few months drop me an email via or add a comment to my latest post.

Happy Gardening
