Note: April 2017 seed list: Items 62, 65, 66 and 68 are now SOLD OUT.
Note: this scheme is normally restricted to Members of the Society, although from time to time we may offer surplus seed to a wide audience.
Seed lists are sent out with or announced in the Journal whenever fresh seed becomes available throughout the year. The seed provided is usually from carefully pollinated plants already in members´ collections or as permitted material collected directly from habitat.
Why grow from seed?
Plants raised from seed provide the grower with a far better understanding of the richness and diversity within a species and enable collections to be enlarged and improved relatively quickly and cheaply. Several good collections of Haworthias are in the process of being built up by members around the world, largely from seed provided via the Haworthia Society.
These collections will have the potential to ensure the continued survival and availability of the species. Conservation is integral to the Society´s philosophy and raising plants from distributed seed is an excellent conservation friendly method of helping to preserve the gene pool of these plants, some of which are becoming increasingly endangered in the wild.
