Shipping Restrictions

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.

International Restrictions

Beginning in 2020, we will no longer ship anything outside the USA and US territories, including seeds.  We used to ship some seeds to other countries, but the increasingly complex rules and higher level of enforcement have just made it too difficult.  I don’t want to risk making mistakes that could get our customers in trouble.  So, no more international orders.  Sorry about that.

State Restrictions

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 (seeds OK)

California: Onion bulbs

Florida: Potato tubers (seeds OK)

Hawaii: Sea kale and related Crambe species

Idaho: Onion bulbs and potato tubers (seeds OK)

Montana: Potato tubers (seeds OK)
