On Thanksgiving, 2016, Matt gave permission to take the FTS Seed Bank online.
It's 4 years old today and doing better than ever, thanks to Chef Dean.
I look around at other forums and Facebook Groups and see nothing like it anywhere.
I'm thankful for all the support you folks have given it.
Every person who donates seeds or gets seeds from the bank is doing something to make this hobby better for everyone.
Happy Thanksgiving everybody!

You, and now ChefDean, have done an amazing job starting and running the seed bank. It is certainly one of the best membership benefits here and I'm very grateful for you starting it and Chef for continuing it!

Happy birthday, Seed Bank!

The seed bank is a huge benefit for this forum, and for the hobby altogether! Speaking from personal experience, it got me back into the hobby stronger than ever, and has kept me busy during the pandemic. I have plants growing that I never even would have imagined owning :) I really appreciate you all making this a reality, thank you!!!

I second that sentiment. Even though I have been growing these plants for years, I have never tried to (deliberately) grow them from seed. Being able to get them from the seedbank encouraged me to try them. My prize to date are the two S. alata 'Night' seedlings that I am nursing along. The filiformis and capes are going gang busters!!
