Seed Saving Library Disclaimer:

Thank you for your interest in our Seed Saving Library! You should know that the Seed Saving Library consists of homegrown seed, which may not meet state, federal and/or the Federation of International Seedsmen’s germination or labeling standards/laws. At The Boyden Library, we try our best to ensure the quality of our seeds using best practices in inventory care and labeling. Nonetheless, seeds are alive and people donating to the Seed Saving Library have varying degrees of skill in saving seeds. You should know that you might experience low germination rates or receive seeds that were not properly labeled. If you do have any issues/concerns with the seeds you get from the Seed Saving Library, please let us know so we can try to fix it for future users of the library!
