International Shipping Timelines and Requirements

Phytosanitary certificates and seed inspections may be needed for international orders depending on the country. Every country is different and requires different testing for different seeds. Some require no testing at all.

Shipping USPS International: Cost will be determinated by weight. Shipping time can vary but usually 6-10 business days.
Phytosanitary Certificates: $100.00 (2-3 business days)
Seed Lab Testing: $70.00-200.00 per test (5-10 business days)

We do not have a minimum international order but the average cost for certificates and inspection per order is $175. So this can make smaller orders prohibitive. From initial ordering date the usual turnaround time is 10-15 business days before shipping.

We do not offer insurance or replacement for seized or lost goods during transit of international orders. We have no control once they leave our building. We will provide tracking and any necessary documents for international orders for seed. Any other additional documents are the customers responsibility.
