Now is a great time to plant native seeds! Each native plant species has its own specific germination requirements, but many native seeds require a cold/moist stratification period to break the natural dormancy of the seed and trigger germination in the spring. If the seed you are looking for requires cold/moist stratification, then fall through early winter is the best time to plant.
UPDATED INVENTORY: Check out our current inventory! We offer over 100 species of regionally-adapted native trees, shrubs, and perennial plants from around the Klamath-Siskiyou bioregion, with an emphasis on small seed lots, a large diversity of species, and flowering herbaceous plants for pollinator habitat and conservation. Our seeds can be used in a variety of applications, including native plant gardens, habitat restoration, pollinator gardens, rain gardens, drought tolerant gardens, or wildlife plantings.
A pdf of our current inventory is now available. The inventory list includes botanical and common names, photos, price per individual seed packet, and information about whether or not we have larger quantities available. Inventory quantity varies according to species. We typically harvest less than a pound of any given species of seed, unless contracted to collect large seed lots. Packets containing small seeds contain about 1 gram of seed (approximately a tablespoon of seed), but packets with larger seeds are generally 2-3 grams of seed, depending on the size of the seed. Custom seed packets with a specific seed quantity are available upon request .

HOW TO PLACE AN ORDER: Klamath-Siskiyou Native Seeds is a small business, run on the side of many various projects and work commitments. We are small, and still run off the old fashioned honor system. Someday we may have an updated website with a shopping cart, lots of information, and the ability to accept credit cards, but for now it works this way:
Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 541.890.1483 with a seed request. If you know the species and quantity you are looking for that makes things easy. If not, we can make recommendations for your site/project and we will verify seed quantity availability and get back to you. When you settle on your order, we will give you an invoice preview via email for your approval. Once approved, we will send you the seeds in the mail and you can send a check made out to Klamath-Siskiyou Native Seeds.
SHIPPING: Shipping is generally 50 cents per packet of seeds, but may vary depending on the bulkiness or shape of larger seed, or the size of the order. Shipping cost will be included on your invoice preview prior to approval and shipping.
Good luck with your native plant garden, pollinator garden, or habitat restoration project!
