Seed Exchange 2013

OUR VOLUNTEERS have been busy cleaning and packaging an interesting selection of seeds for this year’s exchange. All plant information is supplied by the donors. We cannot guarantee that all seeds are true to name. Part of the excitement of growing from seed, is the variability of plants that may arise.

Only limited quantities of some selections are available.

Seeds are listed alphabetically by botanical name, followed by the common name, colour, plant type, height and a brief description provided by the donor. Plant type is coded as follows: AN (annual); BI (biennial); BU (bulb); GR (grass); HB (herb); PE (perennial); SH (shrub); TR (tree); VG (vegetable); VI (vine)

If possible, please complete the SEED EXCHANGE ORDER FORM 2013 and submit it by email to

A copy of the form may also be printed and completed by hand and mailed to:
