Me too, and my sincerest thanks to all who made this tremendous effort to send seeds across EU boundaries. Just so sad I will not be able to sow most seeds before next autumn.. Bloody stupid legislation indeed.

My seeds arrived yesterday :-)

A big thank you everybody who made this possible.

I think I will sow teh seeds needing cold stratification only this fall, I'm not too much a fan of placing seeds in the refrigerator and having them germinate begin of the summer.
Bulboholic, but with moderation.

A beautiful collection of Paeonia seeds has also arrived in Italy. Thank you very much.

Received the last (I think!) of my seed exchange order today in Virginia/United States, via the Linden, NJ port of entry.

No seeds rejected and the inspectors there have been very accommodating when mistakes are made - they called me last year when me or a plant society accidentally reused a shipping label, and intercepted, inspected and forwarded a package this year where the plant society had included my permit number but I had forgotten to send them a shipping label. Appreciate the work of all the SRGC volunteers and donors!

I'm hoping there'll be a system next year where I can still donate seeds, maybe through a US member who then aggregates and forwards seeds for a phytosanitary inspection?

Indeed, Diane,  most  bulbous species in particular can be damaged by putting  too soon into the  fridge for storage.  In many cases the  enmbryo has  to complete its development once the  seed  has left the  plant.

What you say is generally true; but, some ephemeral seeds [particularly from Amarylidaceae, and Fumeraceae], will sprout unplanted  if not refrigerated.

I suspect that something like that will be needed for Australia as well - for sending and receiving because our Customs inspectors are also demanding a Phyto,
