Dear Seed Customer:

This is our 31st seed price list for the 2012-2014 season. Our seeds are collected from hardy strands in Northwestern Montana, Northern Idaho, Southern British Columbia and Eastern Washington. We collect seed during their prime from quality strands during moderate and heavy crops . . . all seed sources are identified to National Forest or Provincial Park.

Our seeds are professionally cleaned and stored until shipment. They are warranted to be true to species within accepted tolerances. We guarantee all seed to be correctly labeled and to be in good condition when shipped. All seed is from this year's crop unless otherwise specified.

We test moisture content of all seed lots before they are shipped. This is done for our benefit as well as our customer's benefit. Optimum viability of seeds is best maintained with proper moisture content of the seeds. Germination tests are conducted by State and University laboratories.

Whenever possible, please place orders for our native shrub seed by the first of July. This enables us to make plans for collection and helps to assure delivery. All seeds listed are available in ounce lots in addition to the standard pound weights. Price per ounce is one-tenth the pound price. Terms are payment in advance or C.O.D. unless other arrangements are made. Prices are F.O.B. Moyie Springs, Idaho. Although we do not expect to make price changes during the year, we do reserve the right to make changes without notice.

Thank you very much,
