No, you cannot buy AAS Winner seed from AAS. AAS is a non-profit organization that conducts trials for breeding companies; AAS does not breed or produce seed. The breeders of AAS Winners donate just enough of their winning seed to AAS for AAS to distribute to AAS Display Gardens free of charge.
There are no new National Flower Winners for the February shipment.
Vegetable Display Gardens will receive these National Winners:
Pak Choi Asian Delight F1
Pea Snak Hero
Pumpkin Blue Prince F1
Tomato Apple Yellow
These regional Winners were sent to the appropriate gardens:
