Australian Native Seeds are all $4.95
Our seed is collected or acquired from other collectors, under licence, in accordance with legal and environmental guidelines. Through this we are able to ensure that all species supplied are true to form. Once the seed has been collected it is dried, cleaned and treated to ensure that you receive the best possible quality seeds.
A wide range of seeds is available!
To Countries Outside Australia
Some countries impose restrictions on the importation of viable plant material. To ensure that your purchase of seeds from Australian Wildflower Seeds Pty Ltd is as trouble free as possible we recommend that you check the import regulations of your country, relating to Australian seeds.
We cannot know the import regulations of all the 200+ countries in the world or changes to those regulations that may occur at any time in any of those countries.
At all times it remains the reponsibility of the purchaser to check the import regulations of the destination country.
To the best of our knowledge our small packets of seeds sealed in foil sachets are permitted entry to most countries in 'souvenir quantities'. However some countries do have more strict rules.
New Zealand has strict controls on the entry of seeds, in small or large quantities. We have checked all our seed types against the Permitted List maintained by the NZ Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries and at that time ALL of our seed species were permitted entry. However, just occasionally, we receive a letter from a NZ traveller advising that NZ Customs confiscated some packets of our seeds.
We advise all travellers wishing to take our seeds into New Zealand to declare the seeds and ask the official to check them against the Permitted List. Mail Order customers should check the MAF regulations prior to placing a firm order.
United States of America
Many people take our seeds into the USA without incident. However, during 2007/2008 a small handful of travellers have advised us of a difficulty on their return to the USA with our seeds. Our check of available on-line regulations for the USA, showed that regulations in the USA seem to vary from State to State and species to species. Travellers entering the USA with our seeds are advised to check carefully the regulations for their port of entry and their destination State and the particular seed species. Mail order customers should do the same prior to placing a firm order.
It is the responsibility of the customer to to ascertain the conditions applying in their home country or State. Australian Wildflower Seeds Pty Ltd can accept no responsibility for seeds delayed or impounded due to a breach of your country's regulations.
The Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service provides a comprehensive database (PHYTO) of the documentation required by most countries, which can be found at www.aqis.gov.au/phyto/asp/ex_search.asp. Please note that while this database is updated regularly, it may not include all of the latest changes to import requirements for your country.
