[NAFEX] champagne rhubarb

Some of the houses sell crowns - can these be shipped from the UK?  Also, my
daughter is in Germany and I was thinking of having her bring seeds back.
Would this be a problem with customs/USDA? Also, any contacts I could get
for this?

I'm growing Gaskins Perpetual this year.

Early Champagne can be grown from seed.  UK seed houses have it and can  
ship to the U.S.  Search for Early Champagne seed

To my surprise, that got quite a lot of google hits.

In the first page of hits, there was at least one place selling the
plants; but it's in England. I don't know anything about the company:

Maybe somewhere in the later Google pages there's a USA source.
