Seed Lending Library: Finding Seeds

How to Find Seeds

In the Library:

Check out the Card Catalog on the First Floor of the Library. Seeds are color coded by difficulty.

Green: Easy

Yellow: Intermediate

Red: Advanced

These categories refer to how easy or difficult it is to harvest and save the seeds of each plant, not the difficulty of growing the plant.

The Card Catalog has labels for each of the drawers, with seed names categorized alphabetically.

We also have a binder that houses the seed packaging for each variety that we have in the catalog. Feel free to make photocopies of any information you find in the binder - but please be sure to return whatever you remove, so that the next seed-grower can use the information, too!
