From what I understand the proposed list is for foreign invasive species of plants. I suppose the biggest problem is what is invasive in Greece is not invasive here or in Finland, so where is the line drawn? We already have legislation covering some invasive plants but it is not widely known about.
How short a memory people have when we get comments about this is a reason to stay out of the EU. Think guys! what happens when you order a plant from a non EU contry? Doesn't it get destroyed by customs? So you want to stop being able to order plants from italy, spain etc do you?
No we don't, we just want to trade freely like the original plan set out. What we don't want is a political union and all the moronic garbage that goes with it! And this is creeping up on us silently and covertly for sure! NO, NO, NO!bodster wrote:So you want to stop being able to order plants from italy, spain etc do you?
And I've actually had many plants sent from non EU countries, and to date, not even one has ever been stopped.
