Montana botanist explains what to do with mysterious seeds received in the mail

BILLINGS, Mont. – There have been reports of Montanans getting unsolicited packages in the mail from china containing packets of seeds.

We reached out to a local botanist at MSUB to find out why it’s important not to plant or throw away any unsolicited seeds you may have received in the mail.

Dr. Jason Comer says the unmarked seeds are potentially invasive species that could cause economic and agricultural harm.
