State issues guidelines for importing plants

The state Agriculture Department has produced a two-page guide for retail buyers planning to import plants into Washington.

The guide highlights important plant quarantines that must be met for incoming stock such as grapevines, blueberry plants, barberries and hops. The state hopes to notify buyers who currently are ordering for next spring to avoid unnecessary holds on merchandise during the shipping season.

The specifics are at https://agr.wa.gov/PlantsInsects/PlantQuarantines/PlantQuarantines.aspx.
