Plant Biosecurity requirements are changing worldwide, please check with your country's importation regulations when importing plant products including seeds and plants. All countries require a Phytosanitary Certificate to import plants. More countries are requiring a PC for seed.

Please be aware it is the buyer’s responsibility to comply with their country's Customs Importation laws for seed/plant propagation material to prevent fines, delays or confiscation. We will not replace seed nor refund an order that has been seized by customs.

Countries requiring a Phytosanitary Certificate, costs will combine both the fees need to issue a PC and shipping.

A Phytosanitary Certificate is a Canadian government issued document certifying that the plant product (seeds or plants) has been inspected by a governmental agent and is approved for exportation. We do the paperwork. For international orders only, it is not for domestic (Canadian) orders.

We DO NOT treat our bulbs or bare root or our seed selections with any chemicals in preparation for shipping (in fact we don’t use chemicals at all).
