Why can’t garden centres in NI buy plants & seeds from GB?

Why can’t Northern Ireland garden centres get deliveries of many plants and seeds from the rest of the United Kingdom following Brexit?

It is a real problem for businesses in Northern Ireland. If only we'd held a referendum to canvas peoples views....

I think that this is ridiculous situation for years I bought plants from the UK with no trouble except for higher p and p which was annoying. It feels like discrimination by EEC on Northern Ireland they are being spiteful about Brexit. I would have expected them to act in a more adult manner and allow trade that was well established to continue as it had for years.

I still would like to add a late comment. For many years, I used to buy my seeds and bulbs and many plants in the UK, just because the quality is often much better than what we can find in most EU countries. I am really disappointed that it is not possible anymore to oder any of it in the UK. As a big fan of Gardeners' World and Monty and following an online garden designers course in Chelsea, it feels like my roots are suddenly cut off. I can only hope that both the EU and the UK will work to fix this issue as soon as possible.

Any suggestions as to where plants may be purchased from GB would be welcome.

Boris once said we could tear up any paper work needed to send goods across the Irish sea.

The answer is simple. Ignore the rules. EU members have always ignored the rules they don't like. We are not in the EU any more.
