Question Seeds reaction to freezing

I'm thinking of ordering some few more seeds, but I began thinking of our temperatures. Tonight the lowest was around 20F, and the day temperature is below freezing too, just now a bit over freezing but that is after the sun has been here the whole day.

So, if I ask the seed seller to pack the seeds in a few extra layers of those bubble plastic thing, would it keep the seeds from freezing? The seeds won't stay longer then a few hours in the mail box, and I could write a note the the mail man to put the pack inside the door (yes, the mail men are pretty nice here like that). And if they freeze a little, would the seeds die?

Thanks=)

No problem, I have done this many times. Found a pack of banana seeds in the mailbox in -5 degrees. I would still reccomend taking in the mail that same day.

What did you buy this time?

Well, the mail comes around twelve o'clock, and I'll come home frome school about half past two/a quarter to three, so they'll stay there for about three hours. Thanks for help though, nice to know, if not it would be like ordering dead seeds...

I'm not sure yet what to buy...
