About the Seed Exchange

The AGS Seed Exchange is one of the biggest in the world. Each year, members donate a wide variety of seed for you to choose from.

What is the seed exchange?

Every year, members can order seed from our seed list. All seed is kindly donated by AGS members from all over the world, so it is a fantastic opportunity to obtain seeds that are not commercially available.

What do I get?

Your order consists of 23 types of seed. You select 23 first choices and 50 second choices – you will receive these should your first choice no longer be available. (Those who donate seeds get extra benefits – see below for more info.)

The varieties of seed available change every year which is all part of the excitement!

Where does the seed come from?

All seed is donated by other AGS members.

Donors get priority when ordering their seed and also receive extra packets so there are plenty of good incentives to get involved.

How do I order?

A printed list of available seed is sent to members at the end of November and you can then place your order.

We recommend ordering your seed online. It’s straightforward and you can find more information here and step-by-step instructions here.

We do accept orders by post and these will receive the same priority as those received online.

The Seed Exchange 2019-20 will go live on 23/11/19 (i.e. at midnight the night before). To order your seed on or after this date, go to Your Seed Order.
