I've been keeping seeds in the freezer,
When I want to take out a portion of the seeds to sow is  it best to only remove the ones that are actually going to be used?
I've got a bit of a bad habit of taking them out in the morning then not using them for a few hours or even longer because I get sidetracked.
I am thinking that maybe I should get a small pot and take out the the quantity I need at that time, instead of the whole packet?

Looking back at old posts I see Big Gee originally offered seeds of the Aeron Purple Star he bred here on A4A. About six or seven years ago I think.

I asked for seeds this year and so growing them for the first time. Iím really impressed so far at their vigour and early pod set. IĎve got them by the side of Galaxy and Firestorm which are both varieties which are supposed to be crosses with French beans and so set pods early -  but APS is beating them both hands down.

Itís making me want to save seeds if I can. Would be interested to know if anyone has successfully bagged runner bean flowers to stop them crossing? Or any other methods?

Of course we havenít tasted them yet, but so far so very good!

I've just harvested our 3 elephant garlic plants, first time I've grown these. They've done quite well, did not get the rot and also produced a handful of small half inch or so bulblets. Is it worth planting these out now to grow on for cloves next time (or later)?  If so, would it be best to give them a quiet corner in the plot or pot them up? If in a pot, how many to a pot?  :blob7:
