Annual Members' Seed Pack

Each year, we offer free seed packets to Garden members (Individual through Director’s Circle levels) through our Members’ Seed Distribution Program. Not a member? Join here! You can also purchase seeds from our online Garden Shop or visit the Shop in person.

PLEASE NOTE: To help prevent the spread of invasive species, we limit our seed distribution to a 12-state region of the Southeast, from the Mississippi River to the Atlantic Ocean and from the Gulf of Mexico north to Kentucky, West Virginia, Maryland and Delaware. If you live outside this area, we may be able to help you find sources of native seeds in your region.

 

2022 Members’ Seed Pack

We’re excited to return to a choice-based method of seed selection in 2022. Current Garden members (Individual through Director’s Circle levels) may select up to eight packets of seed from 30 available species. Note that Digital level memberships do not qualify for seeds.

North Carolina Wildflower of the Year

Downy Woodmint

In collaboration with the Garden Club of North Carolina, we distribute FREE seed packets of the current North Carolina Wildflower of the Year while supplies last. The 2022 North Carolina Wildflower of the Year is downy woodmint (Blephilia ciliata), a hardy native perennial that grows in dry, open woodlands, meadows, and prairies throughout the central and southeastern United States.

We're working every day to protect rare species through seed banking and restoration.
