UPDATE: Seed Exchange To Open Saturday December 3rd

Our opening date will be Saturday, December 3. The opening hour planned is 8:00 pm Denmark time, which is 6:00 am in central Australia, and 12 noon Central Standard Time in North America.

The cost per lot of seed is three dollars (US). There are normally five seeds per lot, but occasionally more.

All seed exchange orders are placed through ASI's web based shopping cart. ASI's on-line cart link will be here when we open the exchange. Seed exchange questions can be directed to exchange manager Lars Hoepfner, and site caretaker Ted Havelka (email at end of page for Ted).

A summary of this year's seed lot selection is now posted here for review before the seed exchange opens:

The top-of-page timeline roughly outlines the Seed Sale progress from month to month. Specific deadlines vary from year to year and are established by the chairman. Participation is open to members only.

The rules for the seed exchange are as follows:
  • All members of ASI are allowed to take part in the seed exchange.
  • The seed will be sold for $3.00 per portion. A portion would as a minimum include 5 seeds.
  • Donors have first priority to choose seed until two weeks after the seedlist has been published.
  • Donors are allowed to get five portions of seed free of charge.
  • Non-donors have second priority to the seed (two weeks after the seedlist has been published).
  • Orders are treated as first come, first served. Payment for seed and postage will go to the treasurer.
All kinds of aril seed are welcome, including seed from open-pollinated seedpods. Please use the following notation when you mark the seed portions you donate:
  • OP = Open pollinated
  • HP = Hand pollinated
  • CW = Collected wild
Please tell us what kind of aril or arilbred plant, too, using the standard notation: O, OH, OG, RC, R, RH, OB+, OGB+, RB+, OB, OGB, RB, OB-, OGB-, RB-.

If you are using your own code (many hybridizers are), please tell me about your code.

No portion of seed is too small!!!!

The deadline for sending seed to the seed exchange program is September 1st. If your seed is not ready at that time, please send me a note telling me what you are expecting to donate.

Put all your marked envelopes (for example 11cm x 16cm) in a larger envelope and send your donation to me:
  • Lars Høpfner
    Langengen 38, Svorgerslev
