Downloadable Seed List Files

The 2019-2020 Seed Exchange is CLOSED and the leftover seed was distributed to the chapters who requested seed - check with your local chapter to see if seed is still available. This page is being left up to give members access to the files from the 2019-2020 Seed Exchange. 

The 2020-2021 seed lists will appear here in December just before ordering begins.

Below are links to various files related to the seed list that you can view or download to your computer.


If you would like to have a copy of the seed list for your records, you may view, print and/or download the PDF file of the whole 2019-2020 NARGS Seed List (garden-and wild-collected seeds) or the Surplus Seed LIst 2019-2020. Note - we also keep Past Seed Lists available on the website as pdf files for your convenience.  

** Printing note: When printing out the PDF files for the Seed List and Donors Lists, you may need to adjust your printer setting to “Fit to page” or “Shrink to fit”, as the files were originally formatted using an odd-sized page for the printed seed list booklet. This can easily be done in the latest versions of Adobe Reader or if you download the file to your computer first.

For a spreadsheet or text version of the NARGS seed list contact Laura Serowicz. 


The lists of seed donors by name or donor number can be downloaded/printed from the Donors List pdf. There is also a link to the donor's list on the seed ordering page if you just need a quick look for a donor while viewing the online Seed List.

The genus/species name changes or list of select plant groups (Cacti; Succulents; Grasses; Tree/shrubs; and Vines) used in this year's seed list are available to view or download from Species Name Changes & Selected Groups pdf. For more information about how the seeds are listed and the nomenclature resources, see the General Seed List Information page. 


A limited number of printed seed lists are still available by contacting the Seed Exchange Director: Joyce Fingerut, 537 Taugwonk Road, Stonington, CT 06378-1805. 

Contact Laura Serowicz, 15411 Woodring St, Livonia, MI 48154-3029 if you need a copy of the Surplus Seed List Order Form to order by mail - it lists seeds remaining by number only so you will need a print seed list, or use the list on the website - order form/payment must reach Wisconsin-Illinios Chapter by March 20th.
