Seed Distribution Scheme - 2019

The seed distribution scheme for 2019 is now closed, come back next Autumn.

Please Note: Signup for the Seed Distribution has been extended through November 2019!

The seed distribution scheme allows members to access seed collected from various maple species and cultivars.

If you wish to apply for a share of this seed then please note the following:

  1. Please make a payment of £5 for UK destinations and £8 for the rest of the world, Payment should be made on this page using credit or debit card, or through a PayPal account – your name and address for delivery will be gathered at the time of payment. Please ensure payment is made before the end of November. A PayPal account is not needed to use this payment service.
  2. Please state whether you require small, medium or large maples and we shall do our best to meet these requirements.
  3. This scheme will be administered from the UK so please ensure that you are allowed to import seed with the appropriate authority in your country. If you apply for seed we have to presume that it is legal for you to do so.
  4. Seed will be collected from a number of sources, all with the owner’s permission.
  5. Once the seed has been collected it will be divided between applicants as fairly as we can. Generally speaking the allocation will be contained in an A4 or A5 sized envelope and will be sent out in late autumn or may be available for collection at the AGM.
  6. Please note that we cannot guarantee a particular species as it will depend on what seed is available at the time of collection. Neither can we guarantee that the seeds will yield species that are 100% true to type as there is the possibility of hybridization in the parks and gardens where the seeds are collected.
  7. Members who supply seed to the scheme are entitled to a free share.

On a more general note it would be appreciated if members could collect and send seed to, Robin Jamie, our co-ordinator. Please contact Robin by e-mail to arrange sending seed. This would be most welcome and will give members a great chance to get some unusual species. If you are sending seed, please ensure that the seed for each species or cultivar is in a separate packet, with each packet clearly labelled with the species/cultivar name, and date, place & country of collection.

If you have any further questions about the scheme then please email Robin.
