International shippings to EU & NI

At present we are legally unable to ship seed top the EU or NI

The EU have indicated that they intend to grant bi-lateral equivalence for fruit and vegetable propagating material following a vote in the PAFF committee and they also intend to progress with a Council decision for agricultural species and forest reproductive material. At this stage we do not have confirmation of timings, but we will update this page as soon as anything changes and email all those subscribed to our newsletters in the section below.

Under the recent agreement between the UK and the EU for Northern Ireland the UK has offered in principle to the addition of the missing seed marketing directives for fodder, ornamentals and vegetable. This means that the normal rules for marketing seed in these directives into the EU post transition period will apply to movement into Northern Ireland.  the EU has indicated that it intends to grant equivalence to the UK, and this means that the block on marketing should be resolved when this is finalised.
