Seed Exchange

2017 - 2018 SEEDEX

Our members are now collecting and preparing their seed donations for the 2017-18 exchange. Donation sheets were distributed by e-mail early in October and published in the October Journal.

Please mail your packages of seed to Arie Vanspronsen, PO Box 1234, 2 Union Street, Waterdown Ontario, L0R2H0 as soon as possible and before October 31st 2017. In some cases seeds may not have ripened by the deadline. If this is the case, please let Arie know what you intend to send, by the due date, and the seeds can arrive later when ripe and dry.

Orders for seed must be placed during December. We'll post the details here as they become available.

The Seedex is open only to members of the Ontario Rock Garden & Hardy Plant Society.  To cover the cost of the winter exchange, members pay $15 CAD and can then order up to 60 packages of seeds.

If you are not a member yet, watch this page early in December for the complete list of seeds available. If you decide you want to get seeds, you can join and order your seeds on-line at that time. Deadline for orders is Dec 31, 2017. (By joining before Dec 31, 2017, you your membership will be in effect until Dec 31, 2018 and you will be able to participate in the 2018-19 exchange as well with paying an additional membership fee.)

Residents of the USA can order only those seeds approved for entry into your country. 
Restricted seeds are identified in our Seedex with the symbol [X] in the germination 

Please keep in mind that a Small Lots of Seed Permit is required and must be sent in 
with your order, along with the Conditions, an itemized list of the seed names, your
own mailing label and the yellow and green mailing label. If you have recently applied
for the permit, and expect it soon, you can send it later on.  USA regulations restrict
importation to 50 packets of seed, but if you fill in all 60 spaces, we'll stop when we
get to 50 if you were lucky enough to get all your wishes!
