Someone may have covered this in an earlier thread, but does anyone know if Prairie Garden seeds is one of the Canadian companies that WILL ship to the US or one of those that WON'T. I was perusing their online list and the seem to have a lot of the older, more obscure subspecies of wheat, and since my stuff did so badly this year, I'm contemplating seeing if any of those do better (since the selling point for most of them is their disease resistance.
And if they DON'T does anyone know if Salt Spring Seeds DOES. Their list is not so extensive, but they do have ONE of the wheats on my potential list.

what happens if just a private person sends seeds across the border? As far as I can tell, nothing untoward, they just wander through...perhaps a matter of luck or? Might this be a workaround for some of us?
i really don't know as i don't ship seeds around much. i don't like risking my hard earned $ or efforts without being more certain so i won't do it until i am more certain. at the moment i don't have a budget for it anyways so the point is moot... :/

wilscase: I'm a graduate student at Oregon State and have been working with populations segrgating for different color genes such as the B gene in Cucurbita. I'm curious if anyone has experience with crosses in Cucurbita maxima between grey blue types and orange?

wilscase: I have been backcrossing to the grey parent for 4 generations and have finally selfed the heterozygotes (for the Bmax gene) the populations have segregated for diffuse bicolor (pink/blue, orange green), blue green, blue, green, pink (salmon) and orange

wilscase: The genes involved are Bmax and bl. I have observed that Bmax is incompletely dominant to wild type (green). I have read that bl is incompletely recessive to Bl(wild type). I'm curious if anyone else has observed the behavior of Bmax in a grey/blue type

wilscase: It appears that bl and Bmax are interacting to produce different shades of salmon and pink.

wilscase: I'm also interested in any other color genetics, especially the relationships between B and L genes. In the right background these genes can dramatically increase Carotenoids (vitamin A)
