    Best way to ship seeds?

    I know there is a way to ship seeds with the envelope 1/4in. no rollers.
    I don't remember how.
    I owe some sase seed but don't want them crushed.
    How do I do this?
    Thanks,

    Use one of those puffy yellow envelopes or use a normal one but wrap that mini-bubble wrap around the seed packet.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    Or with drosera seed, you really just need it wrapped in a napkin. For larger ones, bubble wrap is probably the best bet.

    I've used a bubble envelope once, but it was soo flattened it was hard to believe it could have happened any other way then on purpose.
    Does anyone know if US customs does that on purpose?

    Well, so far my best luck has been with padded envelopes WITH bubble wrap....it's not as excessive as it seems.

    The stiff cardboard mailers used for sending CDs/DVDs will not pass through the sorting machines. You'll probably have to pay the additional $0.20 non-machinable surcharge on top of any weight over 1 oz.
