I've often wondered what rules govern the importing of seeds and vegetables. What can I bring back from holidays; what am I allowed swap with other growers; can I take cuttings abroad and bring them home?
Well DEFRA has now published a useful leaflet to what you can and cannot bring in. Here's the link. We're pretty much unrestricted between EU countries but there are controls on bringing in some vegetables (potatoes in particular) from non EU countries.
As for what is happening in the garden at the moment - not a lot. The courgettes are doing very little, some Golden Sweet tomatoes are ripening despite our lack of heat, some chilli peppers are beginging to redden, the aubergines have stayed an inch or two long for months it seems. But the climbing beans seem to have liked all the rain so I'm expecting a good crop.
