Firstly, many thanks to Sweet Seeds for their generosity in their donation of these seeds and to Withnail for making this happen (it must be a nightmare organising this amongst a group of stoners).
Going to get this started by germinating the seeds at the weekend (germination will be by the Chilli method – if I can find it, I will post a PDF of the Chilli germination method). Due to space concerns, it is likely that only two of each will be grown (with the remaining 3 seeds as reserves in case of disaster) - I would rather grow 6 beautiful ladies than 9 mediocre ones.
I suppose it makes sense to explain my choice of seeds. Well, Jack 47 has been high on my list of to do strains for a while (stellar genetics and a good reputation) plus I like sativa dominant mixes, the other two I chose because they were new strains and as way of thanks to Sweet Seeds in their generosity I thought they would like some feedback. Also the flowering times are the same as Jack 47, which makes life a bit easier.
The choice of Double White is also down to the fact it is indica dominant and I've not grown and indica (or a white strain) for a while and also it sounds like an improvement on White Widow.
The Sweet Cheese seemed an obvious choice as I like Cheese's and the Black Jack seemed a far more interesting mix than the Afghanis other breeders seem to use – plus it's somewhere in between the Jack 47 & Double White in terms of sativa/indica ratio.
The packaging is kind of neat too – I particularly like the addition of when the seeds were harvested.
For the record. The lot numbers are:
Jack 47 Lot #82
Double White Lot #80
Sweet Cheese Lot#82
Good luck to the other contestants.
