Dear Angela,

How nice! It will probably sound strange to you after all the talk about US
regulations about importation. But I have no paperwork to send. I have only
once had anything seized and that was because they happened to inspect and
find soil. On small packages, they almost never inspect or care about
phytos, import permits, etc. We spend far too much money trying to control
mideast oil to have anything left over for customs inspections - or
education, or healthcare. (Don't get me started!)

Anyway, if you just send seeds in a padded envelope with "horticultural
supplies" on the customs declaration and "NCV", I am certain they will get
through. Bulbs could be a little trickier.

Let me know.
Best wishes,
