Hi UK 420

Hi All ,

Newbie here

Been growing outdoors for 20 or so years now.  Had a lovely Sensi Shiva Skunk from the mid 90's that finished perfectly every year nice and early, nice buds, big strong plant and always managed to give me a few seeds each year to re grow her.  And put enough in the jars for a year.  Sadly lost it about 5 years back and haven't really found anything as nice and poky as that since. 

 

Was recently given a bag of Durban Poison ( landrace ? i know it's a buzzword right now but they might be something interesting ) seeds from a South African friend, stuff he collected before he came to the UK 9 or so years ago.  There are probably a hundred or so 50% white 50% dark.   I wanted advise on the best things to do with them. I have no idea if they have been stored carefully or not.  How viable they are,  whether I should be topping,scrogging, indoors,  outdoors.  And wondered what the best things to cross them with for UK outdoor growing would be.  What sort of flowering time would these exhibit.  I see many say they finish nice and early in the UK but also see some 14 week Durbans that definately wouldn't be so good for the UK. 

Any pointers in the right direction or a thread that could assist me further would be gratefully appreciated. 

 

Would it be worth opening a new thread asking for advice ?

If you have loads try germinating a few and see if theres any success may give an indication of viability if they are a true landrace like you say may not be suitable for uk weather and finishing. have you got an indoor area you could grow a few and maybe cross bread them?
