Do I need a license to sell plants online in NY?

Hi. I want to try and sell some plants via ebay but I'm not quite sure if I need a license. If I do, do you know how I would get one? Thanks.

Only if you are shipping outside the US then a phyto certificate would be necessary. There's certain plants, like citrus, that cannot be shipped to FL,CA, AZ and maybe some other states.

I disagree, Karyn1. Many states require an ag license to sell plants, even if it's a church plant sale.

If you google your state's ag dept, you can find out what is required and some states offer online applicatons.

Here is a link that might be useful: Ebay article
