Question

Has anyone mailed Osmocote + caps?


I wanted to do a RAOK with this, but I'm just wondering if there's any crazy USPS rules about mailing fertilizer...

I've had Osmocote root tabs mailed to me before through first class.

As long as they don't fall into the hazardous material department I don't see why there would be a problem.

Just be sure to include a note inside your package identifying them and what they're used for.

Not because it's illegal or anything but because there's always the chance for mail inspections, damage and such.

Youre fine.

The same thing, online stores are mailing fertilizers.
