NARGS seedex 2023 EU
« on: March 31, 2023, 09:47:28 AM »
Have anyone within EU received seeds from NARGS seedex yet? I have not but due to all new rules I am uncertain how long to wait.

Thank you for your reply Mariette! Too late for stratification now so if anything arrive seeds will have to wait for next year.

Just for info, my NARGS seeds arrived today! Very interesting that the seeds were sent from Sweden (Swedish stamp)!

I think that NARGS are using the same method as other exchanges - such as SRGC - to avoid very large costs by paying to send seed to just one or two "distribution points" in chosen countries, where the seeds are then sent out to individulal members.

They do! Reminding me that I still have to thank the nice Irish couple who did the job this year for SRGCs German members.
My seeds from NARGS are still missing, the German lot got lost somewhere between custom inspectors and postal service. The German receiver is still trying to get hold of them. Probably theyll arrive when Im in Sweden the next weeks.  :)

The seeds got Germany were sent back to the US, have been inspected for the second time, and now sent again. But it seems that there are again problems.

All this stupid bureaucracy!

Meanwhile the seed lot for Germany arrived in Frankfurt on June 15 and should now be in transit to its destination. Lets hope for the best.

Greetings
