I looked into getting my nursery license for selling plants grown on my property and it's pretty serious business. In Florida, general nursery license varies based on the amount of plants you plan to sell. You get assigned a Department of Ag Inspector that works with you to understand all the rules and also inspects your property twice a year.

You also need to comply with the Imported Fire Ant quarantine if you want to ship to most of the southeast US. Prices go up if you want to sell to LA, AZ, TX, CA & HI since they have heavier restrictions of what's coming into their states and require additional testing of your plant & planting material.

I found the process of applying and inspections to be very simple. We have had our nursery license in Florida since 1998 - for shipping plants sold on our website and selling to a few individuals locally. The nice part is edibles (including banana plants) are not subject to sales tax in Florida.

Yes, I agree the process is pretty cut and dry. My point was that many backyard growers have no idea that these regulations are in place, even for a hobby grower selling 1 or 2 plants a month.

Tell me more about the sales tax. Is that only edible plants sold within Florida?

I used to send plants to peeps for the cost of postage; AZ, CA & HI were out of the question 20 years ago. Now they've added TX and LA? Sheesh. I wonder how many hobbyists and other "unregulated" businesses fly under the radar and pay no attention to rules that prevent unwanted pests and diseases from entering another area? BTW, I put a Cuban frog in the freezer this morning because that's how FL wants me to dispatch these creatures. (I suppose that I could have had it for dinner and that would have been okay but, blech, no.)

I've read the rules and spoken with a few people who hold licenses; they don't find the rules/inspections terribly onerous. If you have much of a business, you're more likely to run into problems selling from your residential property.

BTW, food is not taxed in FL. There's some debate about whether seeds or plants that can produce food should be taxed. Personally I don't think tax should be charged but you can get clarification from Tallahassee.

Since this thread was revived - I will clarify what we were told about sales tax in Florida. I called the FLDOR (FL Dept of Revenue) about this earlier this year after a customer told me I needed to have a written letter from each customer stating they were going to use the plant for food in order to avoid collecting/paying sales tax. The FLDOR said if we only sell edibles and not ornamentals - then we do not need to collect/pay sales tax on anything. If we were to sell fertilizer for fruit trees, that also would not be taxable. We were also told fruit trees and vegetable/herb seeds and plants should not be taxable within the state of Florida even if sold at establishments which also sell other items which are taxable.

I called a sales tax attorney for additional confirmation and was told the same thing. Hope that helps!
