 2019 SEED DISTRIBUTION
All the seed requests have been processed and most have been posted, apart from a few USA ones awaiting their permits.   Thank you to all those who donated seed and thus made the seed exchange possible and thanks to the hundred or more volunteers who helped the three teams make it all happen.
This year we thought we had all the documentation sorted out for the Antipodes.   However, Australia then implemented a harsh blow for any member who had not checked their seed request against the acceptable list - the whole order was destroyed, not just the inadmissable taxa.  Fortunately, most of our members were diligent and received their seed.
Japan surprised everyone by suddenly refusing all seed unless accompanied by a phytosanitary certificate.   This is not difficult to obtain; however the inspector has to examine the seed in every packet closely - and charges the client for his time.   This proved to be a costly business and put seed out of the reach of most members.   Hopefully Japan may follow the example of USA and adopt a Small Lots Permit for non-commercial exchanges such as ours.
Good luck with germination and start collecting seeds to donate soon!
