sase-sasbe is NOT a self addressed envelope-bubble or otherwise
hmmm...Just to clarify things a bit to those new to GW or to The Seed Exchange, an sase,or an sasbe is not a self addressed stamped envelope, or a self address stamped bubble envelope. The use of those terms is very confusing I'm sure.
It is actually a bubble envelope and postage. (I like to call them BEAP)
The member offering the seeds will likely request a bubble envelope, and the amount of postage they feel it will cost to mail the seeds back to you.
They will also want
1-An address label with your name and address
2-Possibly a list of what they are to send you, or a list of your choices
3-Your Garden Web name...so they can match up the replies with the envelopes received.
5-possibly other things, per their instructions.
If in doubt or confused, just email the offerer for further clarification, of what they require. They will likely be glad to explain things further to you. We were all new, or newbies at one time.
When doing actual trades, most members use Bubble envelopes and prefer that their seeds be sent to them in bubble envelopes. If is doubt about that, it is best to check with the member you are trading with.
Some seeds can safely be traded and mailed without using a Bubblie, but I won't go into that here and now.
