Plants and seeds policy

Plants or seeds prohibited by government or shipping regulations are not allowed.

Most plants and seeds can be listed as long as they're allowed in the location the seller is shipping to, but there are exceptions, including some seeds and noxious weeds. 

What is the policy?

Activity on eBay is required to follow this policy, the eBay User Agreement and all applicable laws, as well as respect the rights of third parties. If it doesn’t, eBay may take action consistent with applicable laws and the eBay User Agreement, and may even be legally required to do so. Such actions may include, as an example only: Removing the listing or other content, issuing a warning, restricting activity or account suspension.

Why does eBay have this policy?

To reduce the risk of introducing or spreading pests and diseases, the sale and import of plants and seeds is highly regulated.
