    Hi there.

    None of the UK seed companies no longer offer Sugar Lord pea seeds and my questions are..

    Does anybody by any chance have any saved seeds available for a swapping for something else?

    Or..Does anybody know where to find info who/where this variety is saved for preservation or who has breeders rights for it so I can start 'begging' from the source.

    This variety had AGM award from RHS about 10+ yrs ago and now its no where to be seen.

    Or...have you got any other good ideas where to start asking about it so I could get hold of the seeds.

     Hello

    You could try Garden Organic and their heritage seed library.

    I think a company called Novartis had the breeding rights.. These then merged with Zeneca Agrochemicals to form what is now Syngenta...

    Well then,,there is no chance of talking them to get release any seeds..Sad..or I can certainly enquire, but doubt they would bother even answer.

    I just have to make a lot of noise about those seeds..perharps they will realise there is some money to be made from them after all..but it have to be LOOOT of noise..Huh?

    Thanks for you information!
