Prohibited plants

well, in this case it's just not in the public at all - I actually never 
heard of a phytosanitary certificate until dealing with the US, and I've 
never had any problems - mostly because I'm all about seeds when dealing 
with outside Europe.
Considering the List specified in that decree: If the vectors for a 
troublesome virus include unstoppable monsters like Xanthium, Ambrosia, 
Solidago, Senecio and Urtica, and common stuff lice Acer, Helianthus, 
Ipomoea, Hibiscus, Veronica, Rosmarinus... I consider it a quite hopeles 
idea to stop it somehow in the European single Market without a huge 
awareness campaign. One really should consider to put all that effort 
into breeding tolerant specimen, because quarantine seems quite 
impossible to me.

Because of the Xylella fastidiosa virus, which affects olive trees in Italy, the EU put out a huge list of plants now prohibited from entry into the EU.… includes everything from citrus trees and coffee bushes to stinging nettles. Maybe Germany is easier, but Portugal requires a phyto certificate for any seeds from outside the EU.Wylie
