plz elaborate the modalities, most probably members will be interested in companies that do not deliver directly here. So we place the order and give your address?

Travelling from Manchester to Islamabad

I can visit some seed centres local to Manchester/Lancashire or alternatively seeds can be sent direct to my business address and I will bring them personally

I am hoping to bring some chocolate Cosmos http://homes.fmbrowns.co.uk/ProductDetail_i540956, some Amaryllis, Crinum and Anemone, the latter three are relatively expensive in the UK but at the moment I don't have any Pakistan prices to compare them with.

I was also considering a small juvenile navel orange sapling but im unsure of the photosanitory certifications required

Seeds definitely yes

Corms bulbs and rhizome, im unaware of the Pakistan import restrictions but if there aren't any and the quanitities requested are within reason then yes

Afzal sb there is no restriction on importing bulb, corms and rhizomes, you have to consider only one factor bring those plants or varieties (talking about bulbous plants) that can be planted in spring at the time of your arrival except few those who could be planted at any time of the year because unlike seeds bulbs cant be kept for the next season, Amaryllis could be planted in spring but they may not flower this season for you and same is the case with few others but I m afraid Anemone and freesia cant be planted this season and the bulbs will not be viable for the next fall to be planted.
Best of luck with your plan and plants

Happy Gardening
