please use this link. It lists the seeds allowed into the country. If it isn't there, the seed will be seized (updated July 2018):

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 necessary for domestic (Canadian) orders.

For our customers in the United States, you will notice a change in the shipping charges as they now include costs of the required Phytosanitary Certificate (PC) we must issue with each order. The benefits of a PC are: the shipment can include plants & seed, and it prevent fines and delays. If you have questions what can and cannot be imported into the United States, the USDA/APHIS Plant Protection and Quarantine Permit Unit contacts on this link are helpful.
Please note: we will no longer process orders using the Small lot of Seed program. We simply cannot afford the time it takes to process.

Other countries (ie Russian Federation) that also require a Phytosanitary Certificate will see the fee included in the shipping costs. Our shipping options menu always include any necessary fees/services needed to get your order succesfully delivered.

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).
