Seed Exchange 480 is now open for orders until 5pm PDT, May 31, 2022. Each paid up member may receive a maximum of 15 packets from the list below. Non-members may not order seed. Members in arrears for SX/BX may not order seed.  I check. Limiting the number of seed packets ordered will allow faster processing of orders and fairer distribution of highly desirable seed.  I will also be randomizing the orders for filling.  Any order submitted by the deadline has an equal chance of being filled first. All orders should be submitted to <> with “SX 480” in the subject line. 


Most of the seed packets are now labeled alphabetically with name, item number and SX number.  Labeling is still a work in progress; labels were accidentally not generated for item #3. So be patient with the labeling.  The 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.  The list now includes the number of packets available and if seed is available to make additional packets.  The list is available as an attached PDF. If you wish to print it you’ll need to set your computer to landscape mode to see all the information


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.  Limit 15 packets. Your bill will reflect credits for any previous SX submissions.  Postage will be charged per the postage meter.  You will receive a bill in your envelope which you can pay online at… <…>

List your 15 first choices in numeric order. For example:

13 Narcissus bulbocodium

14 Narcissus cantabricus

15 Romulea rosea


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 numeric and alphabetical order.  You may star your first choice alternates.  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. Orders received after the deadline will not be filled.


No seed orders from countries that require a phytosanitary certificate.


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. 


This list will also be posted on the forum as soon as my husband and I can figure out how to do it.  Wish us luck!
