Salvia Divinorum Scotland ~
Overseas Issues ~ Post
I'm happy that I can post the plants okay. I can pack them well
enough. I've posted many plants successfully to places such as Finland, Sweden,
Spain, Italy, France, Holland, Germany and Greece, so sending to
EU countries generally
is not a problem. I have also sent Salvia divinorum plants successfully to
Norway, Turkey, Poland, Ukraine, the Czech Republic, Croatia, Serbia,
Switzerland, Israel and even South Africa and Brazil.
I have investigated information on UK postal services, delivery by Air Mail to near
Europe should only take a couple of days, possibly three days to further Europe.
However, after that the package is in the hands of your postal service, so it
may take longer. Packages tend to take a total of five days to a week to
arrive from the time of sending. A package to Turkey took even longer,
11 days! -
but anyway, all plants have survived posting ok so far.
I use an option that our postal service call 'SwiftAir', this is supposed to be
faster than standard Air Mail. Unless you specifically request me not to I
also send using 'Recorded Delivery', which means that you (or someone) would have to sign for
the package. Recorded delivery may ensure that you get the plants even more
safely, but if you do not want to sign for it then let me know and I will send
it 'SwiftAir' Unrecorded.
To cover the additional cost of postage overseas: - There is no additional
charge for posting within the EU. However, if you are outside the EU
then the additional cost for posting will probably be about £5 (pounds
sterling), but you should
contact me first to check.
I am interested in other people experiencing the plant, if that means posting them overseas then I try to do so as cheaply
as possible, I am trying not to charge too much extra if I can help it.
But the over all price has to cover some element of the cost of the postage and packing,
the materials and the time involved. A lot depends on the exchange rate of course. I
understand that the exchange rate may not make the price sound that cheap for
