Seed Distribution
Contained in the January bulletin is the annual seed list, which began with the 1987 bulletin. Every item is given a M.S.G. number and collection data where available. The seed sources are variable; some is purchased from reputable seedsmen, some is collected by those who are lucky enough to visit the wild and some is donated from carefully pollinated captive plant material. Raising from seed is a particularly good way of growing a population of plants which should exhibit natural variation within a species, unlike purchasing the odd plant which happens to catch our eye and only represents that particular clone. It is also a relatively cheap way of enlarging a collection and sometimes the only way of obtaining some species.

Plant Exchange
1999 saw the introduction of a Plant exchange scheme.
