I am getting 4 orchids from my friend in France, but when she went to the post office and told them that they were live orchids going to England, the ppl refused to post it because:
1)They dont handle fragile things
2) They dont ship live orchids, or other vegatble products without a phytosanitary certificate
3) If my friend is to do this,she needs to provide a phytosanitary certificate as well as ship extra-expensive chrono post, taking shipping cost for these 4 orchids up to the 100 euro mark.
This is simply ridicilous and outrageous, the law says it is completely legal to send orchids to England! It also says no certificates or permits are needed!
They are being complete jerks! *[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/mad.gif[/img]
So if you want to send a box of carrots to England, you would have to pay 100 euros! They think a bit high of themselves!
aI am very angry, and so is my friend! *[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/mad.gif[/img]
