How to Donate Seed
Seed Donations by Members Makes this Program Work
Collect seeds when they are ripe—normally the seed pod will split open and the seed coat will be dark brown or black. Allow the seeds to dry; then place in paper bags or paper envelopes and label them with information, such as the name of the pod parent and pollen parent, if known.
All peony seeds are welcomed, but the biggest needs are for species seeds, herbaceous hybrid seeds and tree peony seeds, which are always in short supply. To encourage donations, all donors are entitled to a free packet of seed for every two varieties (preferably named cultivars) they provide—up to a total of five packets.
Further information and easy donation notification may be made within the Member Portal.
