Forest garden seeds

This is the current list of seeds that I have. They are made available on a gift economy or dana economy basis: there are no prices but if you request some I ask you to either swap, donate or pay it forward. Please send requests to dalancarter@yahoo.co.uk.

I can guarantee that all seed is from my own garden (unless otherwise noted) and was picked in the year indicated. The rest is up to you. Many forest garden seeds need stratification or other special treatments. Sometimes this is noted in the appropriate article on this website. Alternatively the Plants for a Future database has propagation notes for almost everything on the list.

Seed list – Alan Carter 7/11/2018

Notes:
‘AB’ refers to any line of deliberately varied origins which I have been saving for a number of years.
In general I have (sometimes very) small amounts of each seed. A ‘+’ means that I have a lot of a seed.
Most seeds are from my own garden. Where they are surplus from a supplier, the supplier’s name is given in brackets.
All seeds are open pollinated (OP).
