Replacements for Seeds Out of Stock:

If the seeds were in your shopping cart, and were then checked out and paid for then they will be despatched to the address provided.
Many countries require a phytosanitary certificate to allow a shipment of seeds to enter their borders. The phytosanitary certificate is issued by our agricultural inspectors DEFRA and accompanies a shipment of seeds or bare root seedlings to declare its apparent freedom from harmful organisms such as insects, fungus, etc.
If you are ordering from one of the following destinations, you do NOT require a phytosanitary certificate, import permit, or the like and you can skip the rest of this page: European Union, Switzerland, Norway, most of Eastern Europe, Thailand, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea and the Philippines.
For bare root palm seedlings shipped anywhere outside of the EC we will automatically accompany every shipment with a phytosanitary certificate, whether you request it or not, which we will supply at cost.
United States of America:
Since January 22nd, 2002, the USDA Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) is enforcing a phytosanitary certificate requirement when importing any plant products, including seeds, into the USA.
To facilitate the issuing of phytosanitary certificates and to legally import plant material into the USA, you should have a USDA import permit. If you have one, please let us know your permit number. If not, we urge you to apply for one with the APHIS ASAP and send us your permit number and stickers as soon as you receive them. Applications are free and (PPQ Form 587) can be downloaded here. Click on " Import Authorization System ". Or, call 1-877-770-5990 for more information. Allow approximately 2 weeks for processing. Your permit will be for bare root palm seedlings and/or seeds (Arecaceae) and will be valid for about 6 years before it needs to be renewed.
