How do you send seeds through the mail? Is it standard in an envelope with postage?

i would imagine a simple envelope would do the job. you might be better putting them in a little bag to make sure the seeds dont fall out the envelope incase it gets knocked or teared

Don't use ziploc bags!!!
Seeds get trapped in the corners...
(I have experience!!!)

If you want a good way to package them, see HERE!!!

This way works very well, and it holds itself together without tape!!!

Bananaman's link is really good. If you're like me and are a visual person this link has a guy packaging some drosera seeds. A lot of the seeds I've received have been packaged this way.

After packaged just put them in an envelope and send them off.

Hope its helps.
