Hi, does anyone know how to contact the state garden police? I was looking through the rules and I need a permit to grow several types of Asian vegetables. They are considered an evasive species in the south so you are required to get a permit (it is a pretty hefty fine for not having the permit). But when I called the state they have no idea who can issue them. None of the people they referred me to returned my call.

Thanks

Try contacting the ag program at UMass Amherst or Essex Aggie in Danvers. Try MA Hort, the master gardeners program. Is there still an extension service? What about contacting a reputable, privately-owned nursery or garden center, don't they need to know the regs?

I like the evasive species name. I know you meant invasive, but evasive makes you think.
