Countries and US states each have their own restrictions on what plants we can send. We do our best to know and follow the rules, but the ultimate responsibility rests with you to understand your local laws.
Some states have restrictions on import of plant materials, as listed below. If you live in one of these states, your order may be stopped and inspected and potentially confiscated if the inspectors don’t like the condition of the materials. Usually the inspectors will contact us if there is a problem, but if they contact you first, please contact us. We guarantee the condition our products, so we will be happy to work with state inspectors to resolve any problems.
We cannot ship the following products to the states or provinces indicated. Because our software does not allow ordering restrictions by state, we will cancel and refund these items if you order them with a shipping address in a restricted state.
For states with agricultural inspections, we add a label to the outside of the package that lists the contents by species.
Alaska: Potato tubers
California: Onion bulbs
Florida: Potato tubers
Hawaii: Sea kale and related Crambe species
Idaho: Onion bulbs and potato tubers
Montana: Potato tubers
We only ship seeds outside the USA. In addition, we do not ship true potato seeds outside the USA because most countries have import restrictions on TPS.
We do not ship roots, tubers, bulbs, or other vegetative material outside the USA. We used to make exceptions in some cases, but in practice, it just invites the temptation for people to do things that can get them into trouble. Even if you offer to take full responsibility, we can’t know if you really understand the regulations of your country and we definitely don’t. People can and do experience confiscations of plants and soil and civil fines and penalties that can amount to thousands of dollars. At the end of the day, we want to feel good about what we do and that means not helping you to get into trouble. So no exceptions. Please don’t ask.
