    First off, you get Tamlin's Gold Star for offering to provide without consideration for trade. Giving it away only means it will be there if you ever lose it in your collection, sort of the best storage method ever, not to mention the joy you spread with the gift.

    Just a note: I illegally imported all sorts of seed and plants in my day. I never had any problem with anything ever, including a packet of foil wrapped powder sent from Belgium at the peak of the Anthrax Scare where mail was being diverted to inspection stations. I do no be encouraging illegal importation mind you, but I think you need not fear a nightime knock on your door. Oh, the powder? It was GA3, needed in some seed germination studies I was involved with back then. A professor friend put up a request for it on an academic listserve, and a pharmaceutical company set me up at no charge for the experiment.

    All sorts of nice folk in the world, as this post proves. Thanks again.

    A year or two ago, I had some rare seed confiscated & destroyed (& the empty remnants of the letter forwarded on to me with a mini-nastygram from the inspectors). While nothing happened to me that time, there's no guarantees for the future (& I did lose the seeds).

    Soon after that I got the small seeds permit. While the form & the site visit (for identity confirmation) are typical government bureaucracy, it's not that bad & imho - worth it for the peace of mind.

    I disagree. You were just doing a good thing. As NaN states - the onus is upon the recipient of the goods. There have been several threads (one is noted below) and many warnings about this. While it's probably a good idea to put a warning in the post, there have been plenty of alerts for forum members by this time imho....

    Actually, a more appropriate reference would probably be here. The 1st url seems to be about importing plants - a different & much more serious infraction ...
