Is this actually true?
No, unless you have a phytosanitary certificate for them.

Re: Ordering seeds/plants online

Yes, I was actually quite surprised that I was allowed to bring several trailor loads of plants and even trees from our UK garden. We bought the house 2 years before we moved- and we brought a trailor full on each visit during those 2 years. I'd also imagined we would have to bring the plants barerooted- but no, soil was fine too. There are some which are not allowed, buddleia for one, solidago another- and a few more I can't remember.

That won't be the same story after Brexit...

Re: Ordering seeds/plants online

Years ago I ordered quite a lot of seeds from the US without a problem.

However after a new (bizarre) law in the EU most US sellers will not send to anywhere in Europe even outside the EU,( including the site I had purchased from with not problem.)

Turns out I'm crap at gardening, thus I stopped mass murdering plants. So I have not tried more recently to order seeds.

Re: Ordering seeds/plants online

I get really frustrated that English plant catalogues will not allow me to order from Switzerland, despite sending them written evidence of the import laws
As we normally drive to UK several times a year- I buy when I am over (not just price, but variety is different).

Likewise, but the last time I got a nasty letter stating that this time they'd overlook it, but next time expect a heft fine.

At the moment I have no problems with Suttons. They have some unusual seeds that you can't buy here. Quite a few UK sites won't send overseas though.

I buy chili seeds from

http://www.pepperseeds.eu

They have both chilis and tomatoes, big selection, reasonable price. And everything I started is growing.

Suttons only ship seeds - not plants/plantlets- unfortunately.
