  • There have been a couple of discussions on here, particularly re plant passports. I don't think anyone had a conclusive answer. 

    Type plant passport into the ljn search bar, and you should find those threads. 

  • Have a look at the DEFRA website.  It's  from what I make of it a complete hash up. If you sell online you need a plant passport,  if you sell directly to a retail customer you don't! If you sell to another nursery or a retailer you need one, and so it goes on ! Also applies to some seeds, bark and wood chip, hope all you tree lads have got a passport as you will feel the full force of the law !!!  Look at all the ebay plant sellers do you think they have passports? As usual it's I'll thought legislation by civil servants sitting in their ivory towers with no experience of the real world and looking forward to their early retirement with golden handshakes and inflation proofed pensions who wouldn't know a hard day's work if it struck them in the face.

    DEFRA have neither the time or resources to enforce the rules so when regulation becomes unenforceable  it is irrelevant,  anyone know of any prosecutions?

    So Chris ignore the rules, if relevant and carry on selling your plants the chances of DEFRA knocking on your door are about as likely as buying a winning lottery ticket !
