It's November 30th and I still haven't received my 2006/07 seedlist. (Ottawa, Canada).  Were they all mailed out about the same date?  If so, would someone check to see that one was mailed to me?  Maybe it's in the mail but the wait is starting to affect my sleep and I can't concentrate at work!

Hi, Rob, yes, you should have got the seedlist by now. I will check for you and email you privately.
Cheers,

I got the seed list about November 20th or so.  I didn't make it out of the D's before my choices were filled up.   ;D
Next year I will start at the D's and make sure I get my donations in on time so I can have more choices.  What a wonderful treat to be able to choose from such an extensive seed list.

I know that feeling , Linda, but remember that the surplus seed is not expensive and you can order in blocks of numbers!

Well I'm happy to say I received my seed list yesterday and am now busy trying to decide what seeds to request.  Obviously the list needed the extra thoughts that I and Maggi generated to push it along, although that wouldn't have been necessary if my postal code had been correct.  I'll have to make sure I get the correct one to the membership secretary before the Rock Garden is distributed.

Thanks for your help Maggi.

Received a tranche of my seed request in this mornings post, so, they are on the way folks.

I would just like to thank all those involved in what must be quite a complex and difficult logistical exercise. I really appreciate your time and commitment.

Many thanks for your kind words to the Seed Gangs, David. I will surely pass them along to the busy workers.

The first 700 orders have been posted, this covers all the donors and the first of the non-donors.

The Seed Team will be working hard all this weekend to get the next batch out.

All the USA orders that we have permits for are also on their way and the others are made up awaiting your permits, so USA Members send them on as soon as you get them.

Yes we should all thank the wonderful, hard working volunteers that make up our Seed Team.

I eagerly await the package from SRGC! Apart from the distance and travelling time, we also have to wait for the Quarantine Inspection Service (AQIS) to go through the packets and compare them to the lists we enclose. Last year my list got left out and I had to photocopy every page of the Seedlist that had a number that I'd recieved and send it to them before they'd release the seed to me! Sometimes the Postal service miss one of the packages, but we don't mention those! The inspection is a bit erratic as I've sometimes had seed refused which has been passed by another "inspector"! However they are usually just clerical workers rather than botanists so you can't blame them -
"They're just following orders"!

Can I add my thanks to all the seed list team and those who have contributed the seed - I went for some of the random seed and sat down last night with the list to work out what I'd been sent - end result one very happy gardener.
Now all there is to do is get it to grow!
