The Seeds and Bulbs Committee is dedicated to the collection, sale, and donation of local native seeds and bulbs to our members, native plant demonstration gardens and restoration projects.

Our seeds are donated by chapter volunteers from their own gardens or by permission from private or public lands, as well as purchased from local commercial sources and repackaged. We keep track of each seed lot, including the parent plant location for people who are looking for seed that has been collected from specific areas.

HELPING OUT

If you have seeds to donate we would love to hear from you! We accept both cleaned and unclean seeds. We'd love photos for this page too!

The Seeds and Bulbs Committee meets several times a year to clean, package, label and organize seeds for sale. These are fun events where you can meet fellow CNPS members and learn about our native plants. Please let us know if you would like to be added to the mailing list to learn about upcoming events.

To donate or help out please email Cindy Hazuka at seedsandbulbs@cnpssd.org
