How to mail cuttings across the globe?

kris2001(6a - s.e.PA)September 22, 2009


I am planning to ask my cousin to send cuttings of a special mint plant from asia.

Whats the easiest method to do it( Cut, treat, pack,mail to USA)? Are rooted cuttings better than Unrooted ones?

Pls advice!!!

Kris, I dont know if you have already done this but a word of caution... it is considered illegal to ship cuttings overseas. If they catch you they will fine you quite heavily. As far as I understand you have to be registered as a nurseryman, or whatever, so be very careful. Just my opinion. Kat
