About the SRGC Seed Exchange

Seeds of over 5000 species and varieties of alpine and rock plants and bulbs suitable for rock, peat and woodland gardens are listed annually in the Seed List of the SRGC Seed Exchange.

A great many of these seeds are not available commercially.

The SRGC Seed List is prepared each year from donations by Members and is issued in late November/early December : only current SRGC members may request seed - subscriptions are due in October. Holders of electronic subscriptions who access SRGC information online are asked to check the status of their subscriptions and fill in all their profile details to ensure they are valid members in order to take part in the Seed Exchange.

Seed is distributed during January and February, so members receive their seed in time for spring sowing.

In the opinion of many, the SRGC Seed Exchange is the world's best.

Thanks to all the Members who have donated seed and to all the volunteers working to collate the list, packet the seed and organise the distribution of the seed to SRGC Members worldwide, we hope you all enjoy the process and have great success in growing your SRGC Seed.

COLLECTING AND CLEANING SEED

It is great fun to grow plants from seed and there is additional satisfaction in growing plants from seed you have collected yourself. The SRGC welcomes donations of seed to the annual Seed Exchange.

Please send fresh clean seed as early as possible - but no later than 31st October 2018 -  to Ian and Carole Bainbridge, Luckie Harg’s, Anwoth Road, Gatehouse of Fleet, Castle Douglas, DG7 2EF, Scotland.

Notice of a Seed Information Database

The SRGC now has a member-contributed seed/plant information database.

If you have made a donation to the SRGC Seed Exchange, please take a moment to share information about the species you've donated. And whether or not you've donated seed, share information about any worthy garden plant you grow or have grown, no matter how it was propagated.

 Meantime this facility is only open to registered forum members. You can read about it and take part here
  http://www.srgc.net/forum/index.php?topic=13727.0
   
The SRGC is grateful to Erik Fleischer in Canada for developing this system.

The Archived Files: lists from previous years

 

Follow the links below for previous Seed Exchange lists which are available in the form of downloadable PDF files. These lists are now closed, but the lists remain on the website as a reference and an information source.

We will keep old seed lists here for reference purposes only.

Seed can no longer be requested from these lists.

If checking seed numbers from previous lists, please check that you are consulting the correct year’s list.

Remember, the numbering for all species changes each year as different seeds are donated.
