I am in a Desperate hunt for Saxifraga Stribryni. It seems to be available in the UK. Which will ship to the USA. The Phytosanitary Certificate is more then I can afford right now. My last International Order cost me $158.00 and I just can't do it again :-(. Seeds would be great if ANYONE has them..


Thanks in Advance

Posting this in 3 places...sorry.

Hi Kim,

They offer a packet for 13,75 british pounds + 4,50 british pounds shipping to the USA. Still very expensive.
I could arrange it that they send the seeds to me and I will send them to you.

I'll d-mail you a contact in Norway, who offered these seeds last year for trade. Try him first.

Kim, just be aware that your shipment could be destroyed by customs because this seed provider does not have a phytosanitary certificate ( I just checked on his website). Last year I tried to bring back some T&M seed packets from France (they sell in this country) and they would not let me. Go figure!

I suppose I have been very fortunate in all my trades over the last 6 years overseas. I have never had 1 of my packages not received by the other person. Also with the hundreds of species I've collected from all over the world I have had 1 package confiscated it was in 2004. The package came alright...EMPTY...with a note. ha! Saying your contents have been burned and confiscated. So 1 out of my hundreds of trades not received has not been bad. Also I just bought things from Lithuania and let me tell you...very very expensive (shipping, phytosanitary certificate..plants). And I will probably never do that again. Unless I go crazy again and have to plead temporary insanity..

Small lots of seeds can be imported without a certificate. See

Hope this helps, I've had seeds confiscated and destroyed, haven't tried to import seeds lately, but this should help.
