Sending Victoria Seeds
by Kit & Ben Knotts - Click images
When you send us your request for Victoria seeds, it's a lot
more complicated than popping a few seeds in a bag and mailing
them to you. We keep extensive records and do our very best to
get the correct seeds to you in good condition, with documentation
and cultivation information. Since we do not charge for the seeds
or the time it takes to process your request, please make it
easy on us by following the directions on the Seed Request page
exactly. Each request takes at least an hour to process and we
do hundreds of them every seed season. Here's our checklist:
Acknowledge receipt of request by email.
Add to database: date received, date requested, date sent,
confirmations of shipping and receipt, name, address, seed quantities
and lot numbers.
< Copy requests
to use as shipping form. File originals. Make shipping labels
and complete customs forms for foreign requests. Copy current
Cultivation Guide for inclusion in package. Fill out ziplock
bags: quantity, botanic name, lot number for seed bags; recipient's
name on heavier outer bag.
Seed storage drawers
> Fold boxes (which prevent crushing), wrap bag, shipping
form, cultivation sheets in newspaper (which provides insulation),
box. Attach mailing labels and postage for domestic requests.
Foreign addressed boxes go into envelopes, label and clip on
customs forms. Envelopes for domestic Express Mail. Verify weather
in recipients' regions prior to shipping.
