How hard is t to get seeds thru via overseas mail these days?



Hey guys,

Iwas wondering how hard is it to get seeds in the mail from overseas seed banks past Aussie customs these days? Especially with the post 911 thingo?

I havent orded any seeds since three to four years ago and used to get it the "stealth packaging" but watching Border Security awhile ago, I saw that Sydney Airport has new XRAY machines that can detect even the minutest plant matter concealed in packages.


Has anyone (in Aus) ordered and received any seeds lately? I know every order would be a gamble but it would be good to know the odds. Id hate to throw away $100 plus dollars if the other team is batting in the high 90% - 100%.


I would appreciate any help in this matter.


Peace, love and mung beans baby!

Hey Sicario I dont think you got much to worry about. I got seeds from PlanetSkunk earlier this year. Paid for extra stealth($8) and they got through customs.


So go for it mate and get some plants growing!

Hey mate


Im pretty sure that they would jus go straight through due to the vast variety of seeds that are allowed to be sent via mail, however im not to sure about overseas, if its from mexico or somewhere sketchy i rkeon itll probably get in the country.

like most newbies i'm in the same boat. What concerns me, is if customs do intercept and pass info on to local pigs would this not give them due course[geeze i hate that friggin law]. working wit bag seed at the mo, and kissing a lot of frogs :peace: . the clock is ticking...left it to late last year!

I reckon you would have to be unlucky to have your beans siezed .More % of risk with neighbours an friends.Police are not fuckin masterminds or have ESP they have to have a reason to act and info to lead them to you.Remember that ol sayin loose lips sink ships.

Keep on tokin in the free world
