[gardeners] Smuggling plants

I have to confess to having smuggled a few plants into the U.s. - the one
time was a pomegranite cutting from Italy.  Guess seeds from Kenya wouldn't
count, would they?  That is one of the more frustrating things for us and
traveling is not to be able to bring home some of the plants.
	our host for our week stay in Sommerset last summer said if we washed all
the soil off the roots, we could carry them home with us.  We didn't try to
take any plants back, however, because we had another 9 days in Scotland.
Do you all know if this is so?
