There is a UK government document on the new EU rules on plant phytos 
[1] outlining how the rules will be applied in the UK.

Article 72
"Plants, plant products and other objects for which phytosanitary 
certificates are required"

"(a)all plants for planting, other than seeds;"

Doesn't that mean they're excluding seed.

It then says

"(d)seeds or, as applicable, seed potatoes listed in the implementing act "

But as now some seeds are banned.

It also outlines internal EU rules and there is a get out for an 
organization if

"it supplies exclusively and directly to final users small quantities of 
seeds, other than the seeds subject to Article 72;"
