    Since 1959, the American Horticultural Society has sponsored and coordinated a Seed Exchange among AHS members so that gardeners throughout the United States have an opportunity to try growing a wide variety of new and heirloom plants.

    How the Seed Exchange Works

    Each fall, seed companies and AHS members send in seeds collected from their gardens to share with other members. View the 2018 seed catalog.

    All AHS members can login and order seeds from the exchange, or send in a completed printable order form, but those members who sent in seeds get first choice when ordering (until February 18). This can be an advantage because some rare or uncommon seeds can be in short supply. All other orders will be filled on a first come, first served basis until March 10. Please note that due to Federal regulations, seeds can only be shipped within the United States.

    If you are not an AHS member but would like to order from the 2018 exchange, you are welcome to join the AHS today
