Re: Glaucidium fresh seed question


Well, Kitty
    If the seeds are tan or brown paper-ery with the bump in the middle,
they I would not worry about rot. Just keep them dry between a piece of
paper towel and mail in the padded envelope so they do not get crushed in
the postal service canceling and sorting machines. Have your friend go on
and sew as soon as she can. They will do best if not allow to freeze once
they have been sown and moistened. Cool... below 40 degrees over winter, but
not freezing.
