Seeds of California Native Plants can be saved and shared. Collecting, sowing and growing seeds from native annuals and perennials is a great way to keep your garden functioning and fresh.
By contributing to a local seed library, you can join a community of gardeners and share knowledge and resources. Learn more about the Seed Savers Exchange/Community Seed Resource Program below.
Seeds are a great way to get California native plants established in your yard, especially wildflowers. Remember native seeds generally germinate and sprout in the late Fall and early winter. During dry periods water your seeds gently once or twice a week until the next rains come.
