The information, as provided, is for informational purposes only and should not be interpreted as complete, nor should it be considered legally binding. Coordination with both your state and the destination state plant regulatory agency listed above may be necessary to stay up-to-date on revised requirements.  Links to current laws and regulations can be found below.
NURSERY STOCK DEFINITION
Nursery Stock means all plants commonly known as nursery stock, whether field grown, greenhouse grown, or collected native plants, consisting of palms and woody perennial, trees, shrubs, seedlings, vines, roses, strawberry, blackberry and other brambles, budwood, cuttings, grafts, scions, bulbs, corms, rhizomes, or roots thereof; also other such plants and plant products grown or collected or kept for propagation, sale or distribution; excepting field, vegetable and flower seeds, cut flowers, cut ferns, cut foliage and other plant material not intended for propagation and when apparently free from injurious insect pests and plant diseases.
GENERAL SHIPPING REQUIREMENTS
All nursery stock shipped into Mississippi must carry on each container or bundle a valid nursery inspection tag (inspection certificate) of the State of origin. Containers should also be plainly marked with the names and addresses of shipper and consignee.
Any person receiving a shipment of plants or other articles from outside the State not in compliance with Mississippi certification and labeling requirements shall so inform the Bureau of Plant Industry or local inspector and hold such shipment unopened, subject to such inspection and disposition as may be required.
NOXIOUS WEEDS
A noxious weed is a plant species or classified group of plants declared by the Bureau of Plant Industry to be a public nuisance or to be especially injurious to the environment, to agricultural and horticultural production, or to wildlife and which should be controlled and the dissemination of which prevented. The sale, distribution or movement of the following plants into and within Mississippi is prohibited except under special permit for research purposes.
