We have added many species to our inventory this fall! The quantity available varies from species to species, so if you want something in particular, order soon so it doesn’t sell out. Some species have already sold out before they could be added to our inventory because of early-bird customers who contacted us with specific interests. Don’t see something you want on the list? Email us and let us know what you are interested in. We may have really small quantities that don’t make it on the list, or we can collect seed for you next year.
Our updated inventory includes the price per single packet of seeds for each species on the list. If you are interested in larger quantities just email us and let us know.
Klamath-Siskiyou Native Seeds also offers native seed collection services through contract. If you need large quantities of seed for a project, contact us! This works best if we have a few months, at least, before the start of seed collecting time. Low elevation seed collecting can start as early as May, and high elevation seed collecting occurs anytime mid-summer to fall. Land owners who want to encourage biodiversity and native plant conservation on their land find the use of locally wildcrafted, ecoregion-specific seeds benefits the overall quality of their land stewardship goals.
Fall and early winter is the perfect time to plant many native seeds. Some annual species, like bluehead gilia (Gilia capitata), need to germinate with fall rain. They will overwinter as a small seedling in order to put all their energy into flowering next summer. Many perennial species need exposure to the cool, moist temperatures of winter in order to break the dormancy of the seed and germinate in the spring.
Happy native seed planting! -Klamath-Siskiyou Native Seeds
