U.S. Gardeners who plan to purchase or receive seed from any groups or individuals based anywhere outside the United States should obtain a Permit for Small Lots of Seed. It is free, good for 3 years and multiple uses, and the application is available online. It does not require an expensive, time-consuming phytosanitary certificate (additional service you have to pay for).
