The seed fund is a service to members only and is a privilege of membership.
Send orders, comments and suggestions to:
The Clayton M. Kelly Seed Fund
1279 N. Harper Ave #105
West Hollywood, CA. 90046
NOTE: All mail-in orders must be accompanied by check or money order,
in US funds ONLY, to The Clayton M. Kelly Seed Fund.
Please self pollinate your species begonias and collect seeds to send to the seed fund.
When sending seeds wrap them carefully in a dry paper packet folded on all four sides and sealed with tape.
It is important that the packet is folded on all four sides so that the seeds will not escape and get stuck in the sealing tape.
Do not use plastic envelopes because the seeds adhere to the plastic. Glassine envelopes can be used if the open side is folded twice before sealing.
