HPS/MAG Seed Exchange

2022-2023 Seed Exchange is completed - Our 29th Year! All seeds have been mailed.

Please remember us at the end of the 2023 growing season and donate seeds from your garden treasures to share with HPS/MAG members.

Click here for the 2022-2023 Seed Catalog. It includes 768 seed donations contributed by 59 gardeners, from beginners to professionals. Approximately 72 new plant varieties were donated for the first time. This year was a difficult year for collecting some seeds, as summer drought was experienced by many in the mid-Atlantic area.

Susan Doblmaier, Seed Exchange Chair, and her team thank everyone who has donated seed, volunteered at the order fulfillment workshops, and ordered seeds and also Helen Standen, for hosting the 2023 Seed Propagation Workshop. Without all the support we receive from the donors and volunteers, the Seed Exchange would not be possible. 

Please note: Any member or non-member can submit seeds or volunteer to clean and sort seeds.  To order seeds, one must be a member of HPS/MAG.  



Since the fall and winter of 1993-94, the Seed Exchange has been one of the activities that makes HPS/MAG stand out from all of the other plant societies in the Mid-Atlantic region. Each year, as the fruiting season for a plant comes to an end, dedicated Society members collect the seeds and forward them, along with a description of the plant, to the Seed Exchange Team. The information is then used to create the Seed Exchange Catalog.
