Hi All-Since the topic of sending plants and seeds through the mail has come up, I thought you might like to read this posting from Connie Hoy which was put up on the Shade Gardens list at Maelstrom.
Please excuse the cross posting but thought I'd share this info.
Spoke to Park Seed this am and was told that as to current status of the
intended use of light radiation against Anthrax(not going into place for
unknown time frame)no harm will come to seeds or plant material.....
However IF higher levels will be needed than the initial level it is an
unknow if it will remain harmless..
(assuming that testing will be performed followed by a undated report,if
they raise the levels.)
Also spoke to Thompson and Morgan and they did not have any info
regarding this subject as yet.

Hope this is off topic to the various lists..
If you are concerned why not contact your favorite seed source and
confirm their findings.
