Hi George,
Yes, New Zealand and Australia do have strict requirements for seed
Some seeds are not allowed as they are considered noxious weeds!
Check those individual countries Dept. of Agriculture to see their
When running the North American Lily Society seed exchange for 11 years
we only had one issue with Australia because a packet of lily seed did not
say "Lilium"
on it. Even though the packet did say "hybrid trumpet lily" they would not
let it pass.
Requirements are getting more restrictive each year both importing and
exporting seeds!
Hope this helps!
All the best,
Paul Machado
