Clayton M. Kelly Seed Fund

The seed fund is a service to members only. It is a privilege of your membership.

ATTENTION: Please note new address. 
Send orders, comments and suggestions to:
Michael Ludwig
6040 Upland Street
San Diego, CA. 92114-1933
Send email 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.

Read Michael Ludwig's Seed Growing and Seed Creating articles for tips and how-to.

The featured seeds described below were contributed by Thelma O’Reilly, Joan Campbell, Mary Fugua, and Beatrice Huckriede.
