  • A Gardening Tradition

    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 AHS members send in seeds collected from their gardens to share with other members. Only AHS members may donate seeds.

    All AHS members can order seeds from the exchange, but those members who sent in seeds get first choice when ordering. This can be an advantage because some rare or uncommon seeds can be in short supply.

    You are welcome to join the AHS today and then you will be eligible to order in the 2018 Seed Exchange. Contact Member Services at (703) 768-5700 ext. 119 or email membership@ahsgardening.org.
