Bulb Exchange

The Pacific Bulb Society sponsors two exchanges of bulbs (called the BX) and seeds (called the SX). Only current dues-paying members can get these bulbs and seeds. At times, the SX/BX may offer bulbs and seeds that should not stay in storage, and these will be sent as soon as possible after they are donated. The SX/BX mostly offers seeds and bulbs that can remain alive under proper storage conditions, and we send these several times during the year.

For overseas members who wish to donate to the seed and bulb exchange or to order from the exchange please contact Luminita Vollmer at pbslv.xchange@gmail.com.

Members and friends of the group send seeds or bulbs (including corms, tubers, and rhizomes) that they wish to share with other members.

Offerings are announced to Members in posts on the PBS list. You can join the PBS list for no cost at this website, but you must be a Member to order from the exchanges.

Each offering has instructions for ordering. Please be sure to read and follow the directions to improve your chance of receiving what you request. The system is first-come first-served, and supplies usually are used up very quickly.

Payments for the BX can be made by cash, credit card, PayPal or check (money orders not accepted) to the Pacific Bulb Society. If you have any queries Contact the PBS treasurer, Arnold Trachtenberg.
