2015 -2016 SEEDEX IS COMING
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. Non-members can preview the list of seeds. Join to participate in the next Seedex which starts in December 2015.
Arie Vanspronsen has taken over responsibility for receiving seeds and compiling the list of seeds.
In an e-mail sent in August, Arie said:
We urge all members to get busy collecting seeds this year. Perennials and annuals, alpines, veggies, woodies, and houseplants are all popular items in the Seedex. Even donations marked "???" and "Mystery Plant" are received with enthusiasm. What is there to lose when you can obtain 60 packages of seed for $15?
Don't be shy about donating seed. Any number of packs will be gratefully received. In some cases seeds may not have ripened by the deadline. If this is the case, please let me know what you intend to send, by the due date, and the seeds can arrive later when ripe and dry.
I would like to thank all of you, in advance, for taking the time to collect, clean, dry and catalogue your donation.
All donors should e-mail a completed donation spreadsheet to Arie. Please mail your packages of seed or drop them off at our meetings as soon as possible and before October 31st 2015.Arie Vanspronsen PO Box 1234 2 Union Street Waterdown Ontario L0R2H0 .
