Shipping Starters

Recently, we’ve been asked by a number of Southeast growers about state-to-state plant shipping policies. We’ve learned that every state has slightly different import and export regulations, but there are a few simple steps regarding what you should do to figure them out. First, visit your state’s Department of Agriculture website and search for “shipping plants.” Here, you should find general information about your state’s shipping policies as well as any documents that you might need to set up your nursery or garden center to ship plants. In Georgia, for example, it can be found at Rules for Plant Protection. While documents might at first look daunting, often regulations can be simpler than they appear. Contact us at if you have questions about your state or specific plants that you would like to sell.
