Importing plants? Canada

Hey there!

I'm wanting to get some more plants for my tanks as they look kind of sad. I've been searching around online and found a number of plants that look nice. However, I've found these on AB or Ebay and the sellers are from overseas. I would like to buy online as most decent aquarium stores are a long-ish drive for me.

I'm in Canada; I was wondering if anyone had done this? Is it a simple process of buy and ship to my doorstep or does it require special permits etc? I wasn't sure what all was involved in buying plants online from overseas and thought I should find that out before purchasing.

Will get back to you on the link to the Calgarian's site.

There are a few Canadian suppliers now. Importing plants is from what I have read a pain in the rear.

In addition to the above, I have found the following as well.

Great, thank you both for those links. I'm definitely considering ordering from them. It definitely seems easier than importing!
