I don't know if there are any US laws to prevent you sending pollen or seeds
out of the country, but the Australian import restrictions are much more
likely to affect the recipient than the sender.  I rang Quarantine today,
and they said that the restrictions on pollen are similar to those for
seeds, i.e. you must declare the contents on the envelope, and each type
must be in a separate, clearly labelled packet.  As long as you do that, it
should be fine.

So, is there anyone else out there expecting rebloom who'd be happy to post
some pollen to Australia?

Ann Pearce.....hoping she's one of the Aussies on Sterling's list.
