Why We Can't Ship Some Plants

Products restricted to shipping for biosecurity reasons

Because of the risk to food crops, and for general biosecurity in areas which are not yet affected by these issues, nurseries are restricted by government from moving some plants across state borders. Individual states have quarantine restrictions for certain plants in place. We can still send you most other plants. If you find difficulty in checking out your order, it might be that you have a prohibited plant for your state in your basket.
