Seed Exchange 15 is now open for orders until Monday, October 30 at 5pm PDT. You must be a paid up PBS member to order seed. Non-members may not order seed. Members in arrears for past Seed or Bulb Exchanges may not order seed.  I check. If you have any questions about your payment status please check with Arnold at

Jane McGary has generously donated seed of the rare Tulipa regelii.  This plant has marvelous corrugated leaves and to see it is to want it.  I also received generous donations of pink forms of Calochortus albus.  There should be enough of these pink and red forms to go around.

Some donors have large collections of a specific genus.  Unless stated that the seed is hand pollinated (HP) you should assume there is a possibility of hybridization. 

I will randomize the orders and then fill one or two requests per person. After filling everyone's top requests I will then go back through the orders and fill the rest of the requests.  This gives more people a chance to get some of the rarer seed and prevents the top few from getting it all. 

Any order submitted by the deadline has an equal chance of being filled first. All orders should be submitted to with "SX 15" in the subject line.  Do not post your orders to the list!

The packet labels do not include additional information such as color, parents etc.  You'll need to transfer that information from the list.  Donor information is also available from the list.  In most cases the list now includes the number of packets available and if extra seed is available to make additional packets. 

Rules for ordering
Your name, address, and email should be listed first on your order.  Give your address just like you would on an envelope. Don't string it across a line; I can't tell what goes on what line. This is particularly important for foreign addresses. 
For example:
Sue Bulbcrazy
2654 Bulbnut Ln
Bulbnutsville, OR 92013

Seed is $2 per packet.  Your bill will reflect postage credit for any previous seed exchange submissions.  Domestic postage will be charged at $4 per order.  All previous orders shipped for under $4 to slightly over $4 per padded envelope so I am standardizing postage at $4 per envelope for all domestic orders.  The extra over the postage costs will help pay for the mailing envelopes. Foreign orders will be charged at cost.  You will receive a bill in your envelope which you can pay online at

List your 15 first choices vertically in order of preference.  For example:
14 Narcissus cantabricus
15 Romulea rosea
13 Narcissus bulbocodium
If you list I preference I don't have to guess what you'd like most.  Mind reading has never been a strength of mine.
I must have both the seed number and name!

Unless you tell me differently I will assume you'll accept seed from a different donor if seed from your first choice donor is sold out.

List your alternates in order of preference.  You can also include notes to help me pull seeds that will make you happy.  For example; "any gladiolus seed ok as alternate".  If you don't list alternates I will only send the first choices I have available. I am not limiting people to 15 packets but if you want extras I will process the amount in excess of 15 packets after I am done filling the other orders.

No seed orders from countries that require a phytosanitary certificate. New Zealand orders are at your own risk for postage costs. The most recent orders to New Zealand have gone through fine but there are no guarantees.

It is important to follow the ordering instructions.  Orders that don't, and drive me crazy trying to fill them, may be put at the bottom of the stack!  Don't make me do that. I'm feeling a bit cranky about people who don't follow instructions.

Contact me with any questions about the SX procedure, but not about the offerings, at  Questions about germination or the suitability of the seed for your climate should be posted on the forum. 

List posted in next message.

All the seed has been mailed so it's time for some grab bags.  

I have three grab bags available for $15 each, including postage.  I will pick three names at random from those who apply by tomorrow,  November 8th at 8 pm PDT.  This grab bag drawing is only available to folks with a US address.  I just don't have time right now to deal with the post office again.  

To apply send me an email with the following:

Subject line must read: Seed Exchange 15 Grab Bags

Your name and address as it would appear on an envelope.

Do not respond to the list.  Responses to the list will not be considered.  Responses that do not follow the above instructions will also not be considered.
