HOW TO DONATE SEEDS
The ORG&HPS seed exchange is a major activity for our society, and the Seedex depends completely on our members sending in seeds. By donating 5 items, you get preferred status when it comes to ordering, and you then get the pick of the crop which becomes a real bonus with some of the seeds which are in short supply.
Please ensure that the seed is as clean as possible, free of contaminants, dried well and properly labelled. We prefer that they be donated in taped glassine envelopes. These are available at meetings or

We no longer include vegetable seeds in the Seedex.
We do not accept seeds which are hydrophilic (recalcitrant). However, you can participate in an informal exchange of hydrophilic seeds. See here.
We also do not accept seeds classified as noxious weeds in the Canadian Seeds Act.
