Has anyone bought seeds from Europe and had them shipped to US? I want to buy from one supplier to minimize shipping costs and the only retailer that has most of what I want is from Ireland. They can ship to US but will I have to pay duties/tariffs once they are here? Hated to end up paying a lot of money for a $10.00 seed order.

I live in Europe (Belgium) and shipped a lot of seeds to the US. Trades and sellings. Never had problems.
Just ask the seller not to mention that there are seeds in the packet and if they are obliged to fill in a customs form never to mention an amount higher than $ 10.00
I always send my seeds with my private name, not my company name and my seeds were never confiscated by customs, neither one had to pay duties.

Kind regards,
