I have three packet of tomato seeds that I will not use. If anyone would like them, please let me know and I will gladly send them to you. I hate to see seeds not being used and going out of date, left abandoned at the bottom of a drawer or box. The seeds I have are (1) thompson & Morgan, gardeners delight, unopened packet. There is appox 20 seeds in packet. (2) Mr Fothergills, gardeners delight, 50 seeds, unopened packet. (3)Sutton seeds, moneymaker. these are the garden.ie seeds that were available in the Irish Daily mail.
All thes seeds are well in date, but unforunately I do not have the time or the patience to grow tomato plants from seed. I prefer to buy the few established plants. So if anyone wants these seeds, I will only be to happy to send them in the post

The garden is just a sea of muck and the lawn is flooded. Looking through the droplets on the window, it is hard to imagine even cosidering gardening. However today I sat back with a garden catalogue I recieved in the post a few weeks back. I just love all those lovely pictures of beautiful flowers. It is easy to day dream of all those beautiful flowers, smell the scent of them and see the bee, float from flower to flower. I can see them all arranged in different parts of the garden. I can reach out and touch them, smell them, and see them gently wave in the summer breeze.
Thank God for garden catalogues, during winter months, we can sit back with a cup of tea and dream the dreams of perfect gardens. These dreams are important as they boost our spirits, and strengten our desire to get back out there. I love these catalogues and I love spending a wet day dreaming. Now all I need is the sunshine and the will
