Payment Options:

We accept Visa, MasterCard and Discover payments on our secure website. All charges are made in US dollars.

Phytosanitary Certificates:

We recommend all of our international customers familiarize themselves with the current requirements of their country's department or ministry of agriculture prior to ordering. Many countries require phytosanitary certificates and some also require import permits.

Phytosanitary certificates are not required for orders shipping to Canada.

Phytosanitary certificates are required when importing seeds into Australia, the European Union and into many other countries. We recommend purchasing a phytosanitary certificate when importing seeds, unless the department or ministry of agriculture in the destination country specifies that a phytosanitary certificate is not required. Adding a phytosanitary certificate to your order can greatly reduce customs related delays and other issues that could prevent your shipment from being delivered.

All orders that include a phytosanitary certificate will be reviewed after they are placed. We will contact you if any issues are found after our review and after review by the phytosanitary inspector. Orders being shipped with a phytosanitary certificate cannot include any pelleted or coated seeds. Depending on the destination country, importation of some types of flower or vegetable may be restricted. We will inform you of any restricted items in your order.

The cost for a phytosanitary certificate is $139.99 USD per shipment. Click here to add a phytosanitary certificate to your order.

Import Permits:

For some countries, import permits are required before a phytosanitary certificate can be issued. Import permits must be in English. Before shipping orders to countries that require import permits, we will need a scanned copy of the original import permit or a notarized translation of the original. For more information about import permits, please contact your country's department or ministry of agriculture.

Duties & Taxes:

Duties and taxes may be assessed and collected upon delivery and they are the responsibility of the recipient. For more information about possible duties and taxes, contact the customs agency of the destination country.

Seed Guarantee:

We guarantee all the seeds we sell for one full year from the date of purchase. If you are unsatisfied with any seeds purchased from Swallowtail Garden Seeds, we will issue a refund.
