The Southern Seed Exchange is currently in a reset phase.
The website and seed catalogue are being updated and critical seed lines that need viability testing and multiplication have been identified.
At this stage the main focus is to get as much seed out to be tested and multiplied so please email the [email protected] if you are able to help this season with this. While we are in this process we are not looking for new or old subscribers to pay any membership.
The close of Seven Oaks in Waltham in the early 2000’s left the facility, seed shed and ultimately the SSE seed collection vulnerable to vandalism and theft, which in the end was the case with a number of seed lines stolen. The SSE committee has agreed on setting up a more sustainable and secure system of seed storage by way of a locked freezer at the Richmond Community Gardens building, meaning the aging of the seed is greatly reduced.
Thanks for your patience while we rebuild.
Note the date change due to forecast rain.
