The U.S. needs to know the origin of plants that I buy there before  
they will issue me a phyto to take them into Canada.  If I buy in  
Oregon and Washington, I need two phytos, one from each state.

I think it is even worse in the U.K.  I remember a London authority  
telling me that inspections needed to be done county by county.  I had  
bought plants at the Royal Horticultural Society garden at Wisley, but  
the inspector said there was no way to know where those plants had  
been grown, so they couldn't be given a phyto.  I gave all my plants
