Packing trades

Posted by gunnysack z6ks (My Page) on

This season I have received several trades which were sent in regular envelopes, some wrapped in newspaper or paper towel, really sad when you wait for the seeds to arrive only to get them damaged or crushed. From now on I will specify bubble envelope only and if the person does not use a bubble envelope I won't trade with them a second time.

RE: Packing trades


I'm gonna be the first to agree with you. I only mail seeds out in bubble envelopes whether it is trades or BEAP. I will not use any other kind of envelope.

I too have had seeds wrapped like you've described sent to me over the years and have never had them come in good condition.

No matter what anyone says or thinks, sending seeds any other way than using a bubble envelope is asking to have seeds received as crushed dust and no one wants crushed dust for seeds.


RE: Packing trades

I've received a couple of trades in regular envelopes. Usually, they're tiny seeds. While some have been crushed, there have been some that made it through fine. But still, why take the chance? Bubble envelopes are the way to go.
