p. ix., сн. iii. IMPORTATION OF LIVE PLANTS, &c. 351

(b) By way of the ports of the White, Baltic and Black Seas, viz.,
Odessa, Batoum and Novorossisk ; for the latter port a special permit
in each case is necessary from the Minister of Agriculture.

Plants imported from abroad may be inspected either on the
frontier or at the place of destination of the articles, if there is a
custom house at that place.

The term live plants includes, as well as live plants or parts of
plants, their roots, scions or suckers, but does not include detached
branches, leaves or flowers, or bulbs, or tubercles, freed from earth.

2. Consignments of live plants must be accompanied by
certificates of origin, issued by competent authorities, or from a phylloxera
station, which must state :—

(a) that the parcel does not contain grape-vine.

(b) that the soil, nursery plantation, enclosure or hothouse where
the plant was grown has not been used for growing vine.

(c) that there is no depot of vines in the immediate vicinity.

(d) that the soil in which the plants were grown is at least one
kilometre distant from any place infested by phylloxera.

Live plants from countries outside Europe need only be
accompanied by certificates to the effect that the parcel contains no grape
vine. Such certificates must also be produced for plants sent from
one Russian port to another in a different sea.

Consignments of plants are delivered by the custom house to the
consignees on presentation of signed declarations to the effect that
the particular parcels do not contain grape vine.

Plants intended for the Imperial Botanical Gardens at Petrograd,
the Agronomical Society of Moscow or those of New Alexandria and
the Imperial Universities require no certificate.

3. Grapes for the table and the lees of the crushed fruit are
admitted at all custom houses that are open for the admission of live
plants. Grapes imported from abroad may not be packed in vine
leaves, as the introduction of these leaves into Russia in any form is
prohibited.

4. All kinds of fruit and vegetables may be imported—except by
way of the south-western frontier from the custom house at Radzivilovo
to the Black Sea, where it is absolutely prohibited.

5. The importation of live plants from Finland is subject to the
same restrictions as from foreign countries, but there is no restriction
whatever on the carriage of such living plants as transit goods to
Finland or any other country by way of the Russian Empire.

6. The owners of plantations in certain parts of the government
of Kutais, who are specially mentioned in a decision of the Phylloxera
Committee of the Caucasus, are permitted to import plants from all
countries, the only stipulation being that plants imported from countries
not mentioned in the beginning of this chapter must be cleared at
the custom house at Batoum.
