[permaculture] Sweet Potato

There is a great deal of regulations and paperwork involved in moving 
plant material across state or international boundaries. This system is 
in place to help prevent the spread of insects, plant viruses, and plant 
pathogens. I strongly recommend dealing with legitimate companies who 
can legally ship you clean stock with the necessary phytosanitary 
certificates. It may seem innocent enough to send a few sweet potato 
slips in the mail, but customs would destroy the shipment if found, and 
you really never know as a layman what kinds of laws you would be 
violating and what the possible negative consequences your shipment 
could cause.
