Annual Members' Seed Pack

Garden members are entitled to eight free seed packets (while supplies last) as a benefit of membership. Not a member? Join here!

The Members’ Seed Pack consists of eight packs of pre-selected native seeds, representing some of our most popular species as well as some interesting and unusual native species that can be hard to come by.

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.

We have filled all available seed pack orders for 2021. Check back in early 2022 for next year’s seed pack! In the meantime, you can continue to purchase seeds from our online Garden Shop (or visit the Shop in person).
