Product Categories

Seeds – Most countries allow the importation of seeds, however, import regulations governing varieties, quantities, duties, taxes and required regulatory paperwork vary from country to country.

Soil & Fertilizers – Virtually all countries do not allow the importation of soil products. As a general rule, you are likely better off not ordering loose soil, or growing kits that contain loose soil. Most countries do allow the importation of hydroponic grow mediums like jute matsmicro-mats and biostrate mats. Coco-Coir products like Minute Soil, are also typically acceptable. Most countries do not allow the importation of fertilizers, but some do.

Hard Goods – For most countries there are no restrictions on shipping non-seed hard goods. These include items like sproutersgrowing trays, etc… If it doesn’t contain seeds, fertilizer or soil, there is no problem, and you can place the order normally, online or by phone.

Shipping Information by Country:

It is the customers responsibility to cover any duties, fees, or taxes that may be assessed by the destination country or carrier. True Leaf Market has no knowledge of, or control over these things. We strongly recommend you check with your countries Ministry of Agriculture or equivalent to understand all requirement and restrictions that may apply.

The most common requirements are:

  • A Phytosanitary Certificate – If you require a phytosanitary certificate, we can work with our local office of the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) to obtain a certificate. The fee is $120 per shipment. You can order a phytosanitary certificate here with your order. Note it may take a week or more to arrange the inspection and be issued your phyto cert, so international orders do not ship as quickly as domestic orders.
  • An Import Permit – Some countries also require an import permit. You would need to provide this permit issued by the destination government before placing your order.
There may be additional requirements or restrictions depending on the destination country and the crops being imported. We try to be aware of each country’s requirements, but it is ultimately your responsibility to make sure you comply with the local regulations and have the appropriate paperwork.
