Dear Friends, I queried Flores & Watson awhile ago concerning the requirement for a phytosanitary certificate for seed imports from commercial venders. Their response is below. Sincerely, Joyce MillerTo: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Re: Phyto-sanitary Certificate - reply, J. & A. Watson We do not have phytosanitary clearance for our seeds, either from the source countries or from UK. Even if possible it would not be worth the hassle for our marginal operation. At present we still have folks placing orders from US this year. They range from one who not only knows about the new regulations but has sent us an importation certificate to cover the seeds we are sending. Two or three others know well about the regulations but have found from experience that others are receiving seeds without documentation and that these are getting through without problems. (Although one customer had their order opened and 3 items confiscated LAST YEAR, before the new regulations! The large bulk of the order was, however, forwarded.) For remaining customers we do not know what their state of knowledge is, but I presume all conscious serious gardeners in the states MUST be aware! At all events we intend to post off larger orders in more than one batch to be on the safer side. We give you this info to allow you to make up your own mind and assess the risk/moral situation.
