A new draft standard for importing tomato seed is out. This will make if almost impossible for the home gardener to import tomato seed as the seeds will need to have a phytosanitary certificate.
See http://www.biosecurity.govt.nz/biosec/consult/draft-ihs-tomato-seed-for-sowing The closing date for submissions is 20 July
