Quarantine Restrictions within Australia for Seeds and Plants

Due to quarantine restrictions between Australian States, Green Harvest is unable to send some seeds and plants to some states. Quarantine restrictions are important as they prevent the spread of potential weeds, pests and diseases.
Green Harvest is organically certified and will not treat seeds or plants with chemical fungicides or insecticides. There are quarantine requirements for seed and plants to be treated chemically before shipments can be sent to some states. We are simply unable to supply the necessary quarantine clearance certificates for this reason.
Green Harvest is committed to abiding by the regulations governing importation of seed to various states. These regulations change constantly and it can be difficult to track these changes. Please contact us if we need to update this list.

Bulk Packets to WA
No seed packets containing 10,000 seeds or above can be sent to WA. This includes many of the 25 g packets, all of the 100 g, 250 g, 1 kg bulk vegetable, microgreen and sprouting seeds. It also includes all the green manure and living mulch seeds in 1000 m² and 4500 m² packs.
This restriction is to do with both the additional costs and the required paperwork. Some of the costs are unknown until the seed has been inspected in WA. Bulk packet inspections attract a fee of $67.50 and this can be for 1 bulk packet or up to 3 bulk packets, depending on size. In addition, there is a Document Inspection fee of $47.00 and a fee for a Seed Analysis Certificate for each seed of $130.00. We simply cannot adequately assess the costs involved.
