Seeds arrived today. Thanks to all concerned.
Received most of the desired ones so very pleased. As they arrived with an avalanche of post having had no deliveries this week I am thinking the covid absences at the local sorting office must be resolving themselves.

Postage delays are all over the place. Karl Rabsilber (Germany) posted a parcel to my son’s house in France on Jan 3rd. Its not arrived yet. But my son is also waiting for a parcel posted in Spain on Dec 27th.
It brings a whole new meaning to snail mail…

I am still waiting for some seeds from Sweden. Sent late November. I do have given up already. But I could still be surprised. Let's hope it happens not later than early April, right in time for sowing...

I received my seeds last week, and only got around to planting some a couple of days ago.

An issue I found is that one of the packet I ordered, not sure whether it was Conophytum calculus or Conophytum minutum isn't what it is suppose to be, the seeds were a lot bigger than the usual conophytum size, some have germinated but it had two starting leaves instead of a little conophytum blob.
