The non-permitted method Janet describes will work some of the time, 
because the inspectors don't check everything, but if the envelope 
happens to be inspected, it will be destroyed in the USA or Australia; 
not sure what happens in Canada. In addition, Australia requires that a 
list of all species being sent be included in the envelope. (So does New 
Zealand.) If Janet does add a Customs declaration, it may of course be 
"correctly labelled" as, say, "Dry botanical materials" or "taxonomic 
research samples" rather than "seeds." A polysyllabic word probably helps.

now spending hours in the Post Office in order to get foreign shipments 
of NARGS exchange seed legally processed. Yesterday it took 45 minutes 
for 8 "small parcels" to be input.
