A Growing Obsession: Rare Seeds

From our friend Yasoda-Dulal, who says...

For those of my friends who like to garden, a useful article on seed exchanges where you can get seeds of rare plants not found in nurseries or catalogs. And they are really cheap in most cases!

"The coming weeks are high season for seed exchanges as many gardeners are preparing to start seedlings indoors to be planted outside once spring breaks. Part of the fun of surfing the seed exchanges is in recognizing names and gardens where donations come from—and the chance to plant seeds from famous gardens. The North American Rock Garden Society exchange lists more than 100 seeds donated by the New York Botanical Garden from its expeditions to the countries of Georgia and China in 2005 and 2007."
