Received the seeds yesterday - thanks for the great job everybody!
Now I have to check the seedlist if I have identified all the seeds correctly ;) - (fritillaria, lilium and narcissus was not so complicate but all the others ...  ::))

I don't think so, Luc; I'm told that there are a number of orders ready picked and waiting to be posted out and that there are stillsome orders to be picked, so no need for stress, yet! :D

Hi All,
Thank You, to all involved with making the exchange possible.
The donors who make it possible, to the pickers and packers 
and the organizers of the seed exchange. 

It is my favorite time of year.

I'm like a kid at Christmas hoping for my first choices but will be happy with what I end up with.

I'm looking forward to seeing what I received. I enjoy the mystery.

If we received all that we asked for, what would we request next year?

As seed growers we already know the value of patience and the rewards for having it.

By the way, did anyone in the US received their seed yet?

Received mine yesterday.  Opened by MAf and all OK so that is a relief.

Thank you to all involved, I got quite a number of my first choices so that was exciting.

My bunch of "alpine" edibles arrived here today with another lot from the Swedish seed exchange (STA) :) All but two first choices, so I'm very pleased. Was beginning to wonder if there was some problem as several of us never received the seed catalogue over here. I noticed the postcode was slightly wrong, but I may have keyed it in wrong myself when I made the on-line order. Thanks to all involved...

Well, today the seeds arrived here in the northern part of Norway. I don't know what sort of transport the "Royal Mail" use, but it seems like they must have used an old fashioned rowboat to cross the Northsea, cause the enveloped was stamped the 9th of January, and the it arrived here the 29th >:(
Anyway, I got 22 of the first choices, and I think that pretty good. On one of those received it was written "The one & an only packet"  8) That must be a good one I guess!
Anyway, a big thank you to the reception and packing team, and of course to all the other donors!

Nearly three weeks to get to Nroway is a long time!
Mind you, given that a number of the paper seedlists did not arrive there at all, I'm just glad to hear that some seed is arriving!!

I got my seeds around the end of last week as well - everything I'd hoped for (other than one apparently mistaken number, which causes me no great grief.  Chances are that germinating Castilleja is beyond my patience limit anyway!Thank you so much to all who made it possible!

Maggi, just keep in mind, if I didn't get my seeds this year, U will not get my seeds next (well this year)!!!! ;D
 
No worries, if my plants survive this so-called winter there will be more seeds to the seed-ex later this year ;)

My seeds arrived yesterday (after a 2-weeks journey). I´m quite happy with what I got, bearing in mind that I forgot to press the final button during the on-line ordering process and discovering my mistake only three weeks later ...  8)

Thank´s to seed ex and all other people involved !

Hi, Folks!
News just in from the Seed Gang that they have now filled all the orders and got them posted out.

As we have seen from some of the examples quoted here already, the postal systems of the world are not all working as fast as we might hope, so please , if your seed order has yet to arrive, wait for 10 -14 days before getting in touch as it is likely just making its way slowly to your door!

Also, if you are a USA member, please check your emails and spam filters to see if there is a message there,  reminding you to send in your APHIS permits! ::)

......
That noise you just heard was probably the sound of the Seed Team heaving a sigh of relief as they sit down to rest! 8)

I do hope they are all having a really good cuppa, preferably laced with a little something. ;D
