Seed Exchange



Our next seed exchange will take place in December 2016. We encourage you to become a donor by saving seeds  and getting them to us by October 31. A submission form for donating seed can be downloaded at the bottom of this page.  Our members are interested in everything that grows.... native plants, woodies, hardy plants, annuals, tropicals, food crops and, most especially, small-scale treasures for a rock garden.

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.

The following downloads from the 2016-17 Seedex will be found at the bottom of this page:

a) Seedex list for 2016-2017 (to be posted early in December)

b) Key to germination codes and special instructions for 2016-2017 (to be posted early in December)

c) Spreadsheet for submitting the list of seeds you are donating

d) Instructions for completing your Seedex donation form


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 code. 

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!
