On Monday May 6th a draconian new law will be put before the European Commission, which creates new powers to classify and regulate all plant life anywhere in Europe.

The “Plant Reproductive Material Law” will regulate all plants. It contains immediate restrictions on reproduction of vegetables and woodland trees, while creating powers to restrict all other plants of any other species at a later date.

Under the new law, it will immediately be illegal to grow, reproduce or trade any vegetable seed or tree that has not been tested, approved and accepted by a new “EU Plant Variety Agency”. Moreover, an annual fee must also be paid to the Agency if that particular variety is to be used by anyone.

  1. You can not regulate what is meant to be…..disgusting prigs….what is wrong with the world and the tyrants who rule it….will you tell the Queen to rip out her gardens and strip Balmoral to suite your hysterical minds? Stop trying to play God….or as most of you English are..atheists…..you make my blood boil…..Why do you not worry about Monsanto and Dow who want to take over the food supply….or are you going to forbid edible plants……bloody twits….
