    Cheers, Ron, I'm happy to see this happening. I think I may have been the first person to organize an online S. oreophila giveaway, back in 2002 when I was in NYC. Also very happy to see that you managed to get pollen from another plant, as my giveaway was from a selfed plant and had less than satisfactory survival rates...

    On another note, I would be happy with half of a 30-seed packet.

    Cheers,
    -Kit

    [Would also be happy with 1/2 a pkg. Spreads around further, and even with some failure, it is enough to get a few plants!]
    Thanks!
    (Unsure if I am too late also!)
    Experience is the best teacher. At least it used to be.
    But then, common sense isn't so common anymore, is it.

    "Winners" have been selected and PM's have been dispatched for snailmail addresses.

    Thanks to all who applied. I hope to send the packets out this Saturday (if you have a PM - please get your address to me asap!!)
    All the best,

    Another update: Seed has been mailed to all who were selected - which btw, was everyone. I decided that since the number of folks was relatively small, I'd just give a pack to everybody who applied.

    - two packs were mailed in the 'conventional' padded envelope @ a cost of $1.22 each. A while back, the post office decided to test envelopes by seeing if they fit through a slot in a rigid board. However, the testing for this is interpreted differently depending on the specific post office. In the one I went to today, they try to drop the envelope through the slot. If there is any resistance at all, they charge the higher price. Our local post office pushes the envelope through the slot and if it can go through without 'much' resistance, it gets the lower price - $0.83.

    - the remaining packages were sent in normal business envelopes with the seed packets enclosed by cardboard. A 4" x 2" piece of cardboard with a 1.3" x 2.3" (approx) cutout for the seeds was used. Surprisingly, this was light enough for the envelope to pass with a regular stamp - $0.44. The postal employee had no issue with the stiff cardboard inside the envelope.

    Bottom line:
    - padded envelopes will cost $0.83 to $1.22 depending on the post office.
    - cost of each padded envelope - $??
    - normal envelope with protective cardboard sleeve costs $0.44.
    - cost of normal letter envelope - $??

    Overall, the labor req'd to make the cutout doesn't compensate for the reduced costs imho (although the cheapskates among us may differ...
    All the best,
    Ron
