Update for our EU members
Seed envelopes for ALL of our EU members have cleared EU Customs and were mailed to members from within the EU on Wednesday 8 March.
It is good to see that the first ones are already arriving at their destinations.

Update for our Australian Members
The package of seed was mailed to Australia last week on Thursday 2 March.  Tracking on the parcel says that it is expecting export on Wednesday 8 March.
After arriving in Australia, and clearing Customs, it will require repacking and further distribution, so please be patient.

Excellent news that the system for sending seed to our friends in the EU is working. 
However, sorry for the slight delay this year, there have been several problems to overcome.

Happy sowing!

More thanks for the people who made the seed exchange possible. My seeds arrived today and I’m very pleased with what I got and how little time it took to get here ( send seeds sort of got lost and arrived almost three months after sending).

I also received the seeds this week. My sincere gratitude to all who made this possible again despite the proliferation of bureaucratic hurdles. I was amazed to find I even got a packet of Triteleia hendersonii bulblets - I thought this was not possible under current regulations and can’t even recall ordering them, I thought I ordered seed. Quite a pleasant surprise as this means at least something may turn up already this season..

Tom, that was entirely by mistake, we had thought that all live material was moved to the 4000-4999 number range, but a couple slipped through.  We are glad that you have received your seed. Happy growing!

My seed arrived, safely a couple of days ago.    Thank you to all involved. 

Pays to order online as the actual seed list didn't arrive until late January. 

I would be quite happy to just receive it on-line as it would also save postage.

Susan,
This year's pre-Christmas mailing delays were exceptional.  However, I think the best way for NZ next year is that those that can view the list and order online, do so.  There are several members who are not very friendly with computers, and maybe we can ask a helpful NZ member to print a few copies of the Seed List and mail them onward to those disadvantaged members from within NZ. Those members without computer skills might be able to send scans or photos of paper order forms by email to avoid mailing delays.  It would halp with mailing costs, which continue to escalate.  Something to discuss over the next few months!
