    Shipping seedlings

    Since I don't have a heck of a lot to offer for the auction, I'm thinking about some of the sarracenia seedlings that I have. They're less than 6 months old and I'm wondering if I should just let them be or if shipping is ok when they're so tiny.

    They're tough little buggers, aren't they?

    Shipping live plants overseas is difficult and not practical for most people except commercial nurseries. The permits and phytosanitary restrictions are difficult and expensive to obtain and meet.

    I'm sure our many UK members will help you out in getting started.

    Be aware that there are shipping and phyto regulations to send plants to the UK. I'm also not sure that seedlings would survive such a long journey.

    Damp sphagnum is a good shipping medium. Seedlings put into a baggie with lots of damp moss should be ok. But they would need to be in a box to prevent pressure from crushing them.

    And thank you for thinking of NASC. It's greatly appreciated.

    Hi Dave

    Sending plants from the US to UK without all the necessary paperwork is illegal.

    Have a look at ebay or post at the cpuk forum. There are plenty of people with spare seedlings in the UK.

    But if you have an ePermit (APHIS), as I and Drsoeraguy have, it is legal to ship seeds from the abroad to the US, using the "Small Lots Of Seeds" program.

    Hey Jim

    Can you offer some details on the ePermit? Cost? Requirements? What it covers?

    Oops...I found it.

    http://www.aphis.usda.gov/import_exp...ots_seed.shtml

    Doesn't say what it costs though.
