Bulb import permits

   A friend and I would like to order some bulbs (in small quantities) 
from a European grower, but we don't know what level of USDA permits we 
need to do this. My only experiences importing occurred before the 
present regulations were instituted, and all I had to do was walk the 
shipment through Customs and show the phytosanitary documents. Can 
someone who imports from Europe tell us which permits are required, and 
perhaps reflect on how difficult it is to get them (probably VERY 
difficult, judging from the complexity of just getting the Small Lots of 
Seed permit)?

Thank  you!
