The seeds manipulated in the general seed bank of the National Botanic Garden of Belgium are collected in the living collections. They are conserved on short-term basis and are mainly used for our own sowing programmes and/or exchange with other botanical gardens or scientific institutions. The National Botanic Garden is participating in the International Exchange Scheme for botanic gardens. A catalogue of seeds is compiled every year and mailed to about 600 correspondents.
