We have a surplus of seed packets left over from the annual Washington Gardener Magazine Seed Exchanges that we host each winter. We gave away two big boxes already at local gardening events like Rooting DC and to Master Gardener groups. We had intended to do more giveaways at several upcoming local garden festivals, but as they are all now canceled through April, we have launched a mail giveaway.
Here is the list of currently available seeds:
– Viroplay Spinach
– Early White Patty Pan Summer Squash
– Cocozelle Green Stripe Summer Squash
– Early Prolific Straightneck Summer Squash
– Boston Marrow Winter Squash
– Waltham Butternut Winter Squash
– Moon and Stars Red Flesh Watermelon
– San Marzano Tomato
– Red Pear Tomato
– Yellow Pear Tomato
– Brandywine Pink Tomato
– Principe Borghese Tomato
– Livingston’s Paragon Tomato
All the seed packs are from heirloom seed company Landreth Seed and have a sell-by date of 2019.
For individuals, put 1 stamp on your SASE for 1-3 seed packs and 2 stamps for 4-6 seed packs. Include a note listing which seeds you want and a few alternatives, in case we run out of certain kinds. We will fill the orders on a first-come, first-served basis.
If you are a community garden, school garden, garden club, etc. and want 20 or more seed packs, send a pre-paid Priority Mail flat-rate envelope. Include a note listing which seeds you want and a few alternatives, in case we run out of certain kinds. We will fill the orders on a first-come, first-served basis.
Send your self-addressed stamped envelope (SASE) by April 15 to:
