Depends on which destination port really as each one will have their own "local" procedures.

We are a Chinese company with over 30 of our own offices in China. If you let me know where you intend to export to I can get advice from my colleagues there.

Dear John
it might worthwhile checking with chinese buyer what documentation they need
to import and clear the goods into china,
we would not have thought a phsytosanitary certificate is required since mainly
used for plants and seeds etc. please give us a call to talk about it further.
