    Chicago customs

    I ordered seeds from a Canadian seed bank . I haven't received the seeds yet, but have tracked them from Canada to Chicago customs. Its been a month ,(May 2,) but the tracking says the package running late and in route to the next post office. I understand that when they( customs) take your seeds they send a letter, but I have not gotten a letter. I've never had this happen before, should I be concerned about not getting a letter? Could they just be holding them for some reason? I did contact the US post about tracing it, but have not heard anything yet.

    Every time i have ordered from Canadian seed banks, its taken 3-4 weeks.
    I wouldn’t worry too much until June.
    Also, not to jinx my future orders or your current shipment, but i have never had seeds confiscated when ordering from Canadian banks.
    My success with seeds coming from Europe has been very unlucky, losing half of my orders to customs.
    Hope you get them soon.

      mail in eastern US and Canada is super back logged. I ordered some fishing tackle from a place in Ohio and it took exactly 1 month to the day to arrive here in western canada. For 3 weeks my item seemed stuck in the US.... enroute to next location. Then once it cleared customs it made it to me in 5 days.
      My seedbank order from clio michigan only took 10 days though

        thanks Tynehead and Amtnamous I feel better already, maybe I'll get them soon, Once they get out of customs, should come down the Mississippi river and be here in a day. I'll start worrying in June tho..

          Ever since Trump installed the new postmaster, the US mail has been more fucked up than ever, esp. packages.

              So? I have several wonky deliveries through eBay. Let's ask our viewers- Anybody else noticed a change in the US mail service since Trump's guy took over in 2020?

                I thought it got really bad around October through January but its a little better now.
                Border changes everything though.

                    Do they always send a letter when they take your seeds?? I may be worrying about this to much. I always get anxious when ordering seeds, I know not to send them to the grow location, but didn't want to get anyone else involved. Thank you all for your replies.

                      Yes. I have noticed the change. I usually order seeds from a place around Sacramento, CA and would get them within 7 days. My last 2 orders took over a month to arrive in Los Angeles. Nothing to do with the seed supplier, they had tracking numbers within 5 days and seemed stuck in transit. Its all with USPS. Last years Christmas cards didn't get to me until the 1st week of January, and some were mailed from less than 15 miles away. Great use of our tax dollars.

                      Your seeds should come. And when they do, have a great grow!

                        I got an email from the usps today. said they were held up in customs. I also have noticed the mail is slower than before, but hat was orders from amazon, not my beans. I hope I get them sometime, but its not looking good.

                          Yes indeed.
