SRGC Seed Exchange 2017-2018 - Number 71
« on: July 18, 2017, 08:46:44 PM »
I hope your plants are performing well for you all and also making lots of seed - it would be greatly appreciated if members would donate seed to the annual Seed Exchange of the SRGC.  Usually around 5000 taxa are donated and transformed into about 35000 packets of seed to be sent around the world to members.  Seed  should be sent to the Seed Reception Managers:
Drs Ian and Carole Bainbridge: 01557 814141.
Luckie Harg’s, Anwoth Road, Gatehouse of Fleet, Castle Douglas, DG7 2EF, Scotland as soon as possible and by the end of October at the latest.

Members may be interested to use the Seeds to Scale Identification pages of this forum to check their seed before sending : http://www.srgc.net/forum/index.php?topic=4426.0

The seed Exchange page of the website is not yet updated with all information for 2017  but you will get the general idea from the advice and dates listed there for a timetable!

I also draw your attention to the Seed Information Database that is described  here :
http://www.srgc.net/forum/index.php?topic=13727.0

All seed correspondence, lists and queries can be sent to   seed@srgc.org.uk

Can I as a Canadian, simply mail seed packets to the exchange co-ordinators without needing permits from UK authorities?
Southwestern Nova Scotia,
Zone 6B or above , depending on the year.

Gordon - You will be required to put a customs declaration on the outside of the padded envelope, this will be in place of the usual SRGC address and your return address as that info must be stated on the declaration.  The means of transport - air -, value - $1 will do but not $0, mark as a gift, declare as garden seed - gift, sign and date it.  All post offices will have these forms.

The grey area must be completed by the postmaster.

Tip - although the declaration says "small packet" ask if it qualifies for the light packet rate which is considerably cheaper, around $8.10 if the padded envelope is a smaller one.

The SRGC Seedlist  has been posted out and is arriving with some UK members.  It was not expected to be posted so soon and the online ordering system will NOT open  until  later.
 Here is a link to the  list   so that you may browse  meantime  - Hier ist ein Link zur Liste, damit Sie zwischenzeitlich surfen können -   http://files.srgc.net/seedexchange/SRGCseedlist71.pdf


edit 30th November - online ordering is now open.

The seedlist has arrived here today too and I was surprised about this early date. Now I am through and I am waiting for the online ordering to be opened.

This year all enquiries must go to the Seed Team -as requested in the Seed Ex. pages etc- and I will forward any queries I receive here to them. I will not be able to assist members myself as in the past. I have always tried to help members as  quickly as possible to sort out their  difficulties with emails disappearing into spam filters  etc but  the Seed Team will deal with all Seed Exchange matters from now on. Members may need to bear with them as they may not be available during quite the number of hours that I have been!  ;)

All seed correspondence, lists and queries can be sent to   seed@srgc.org.uk

You are welcome - the list was only posted online after UK  members began to  report receiving the list and so Catweazle  was one of the first to see the online link!
