In my experience, they are fairly cold hardy. Last winter I shipped out 1,000+ gemmae to 20+ different people, and only one of the shipments was damaged by the cold. I shipped my gemmae in a simple USPS stamped envelope. This year, I've shipped probably 1,500+ gemmae so far to 10+ different people with no problems. However, this year I am shipping gemmae in USPS small flat rate boxes, which usually arrive in 2-3 days. Plus, they have a tracking number you can check on if they're taking longer than expected. Last year I sold gemmae from November through January in the simple envelopes, so doubtlessly some came in contact with the cold and came just fine.
