    Seeds, or live plants? Or both?

    They presumably have a good reason for it, some disease or other that you don't want.

    Actually in the past some of the restrictions of specific plants have been based on false notions, unrelated plants not harboring them being prohibited for conditions affecting other kinds of plants.
