Kate we're going to have to grow them out and get seed to send you! Or if one of us travels over we can have that "special" jewelry!! Blinking :


Sounds like a plan!! Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing

speaking of seed, I'm curious, is Jovi seed hard to come by across the pond? I looked on Ebay this morning and while there was lots of semp seed there was no jovi seed, and when I googled it the only uk deal I could fiind was £15 for 10 seeds. Given that I got 200 semp seeds for 99p that sounds incredibly expensive to me!

Oh wow, thank you Lynn, that's very generous of you! Just let me know the cost of postage etc closer to the time I tip my hat to you. There's something magical about growing anything from seed, that feeling of creating and nurturing new life Lovey dubby
Speaking off which, my semp babies are just starting to develop their first true leaves Lovey dubby

I split this so we can find the information easily. This thread is for all the Semp & Jovi people that want to save and share seeds from their plants.
Lets see what we can come up with.

Great idea Lynn! I'm not expecting any of mine to flower this year (fingers crossed!) as they are all young, but when they do I'll keep the seed to share with anyone who wants some.

I'd like to grow some seeds of some to see what I get. Mine won't have seeds this year though. It would be interesting to grow seeds of Fuego, Jungle Fire or similar!
