To Our Australian Customers

According to the Plant Import Operations Branch, Plant Division, Australian Department of Agriculture, you, the customer, are responsible for making sure that everything that you order is allowed entry into your country.  To help you in this process, we have created the charts below to be used as a guideline.  Plant species shaded in green are allowed to be ordered (be sure to check any notes to help you make your decision).  If you order any species shaded in red, they will be confiscated by your government.  Green for go . . . red for no!

Again, these lists are provided as a guideline and are accurate as of May 19, 2014.  However, prior to finalizing your order, it is recommended that you double-check current rulings at http://apps.daff.gov.au/icon32/asp/ex_querycontent.asp.  If you find an edit that needs to be made to the charts below, please do let us know.  Additionally, prior to placing an international order, please review our international ordering policy.  For more general information about mail order and internet purchases from the Australian Department of Agriculture, click here.

A Note About Shipping Costs to Australia - The United States Postal Service has drastically increased international shipping rates in recent years. I wish that mailing seeds was a simple matter of putting a stamp on an envelope . . . but that is definitely not an option.  Firstly, seed packets are too fat to pass the envelope thickness limit.  More importantly, shipping seeds in plain envelopes resulted in too much damage due to the abuses incurred during the postal process. Therefore, we only ship in padded envelopes which protects fragile seeds but does bump up the cost of shipping.

Shipping for tiny orders is definitely always going to have a heavy shipping to order sub-total ratio.  The good news is that we can often fit up a lot of packets into the USPS Flat Rate Priority mailers which are very cost effective.  For this reason, it is a good idea to plan and place a complete garden order instead of just ordering a few packets at a time or even consider consolidating orders with your gardening friends and family.  We look forward to being of service to you!
