I placed an order a few days ago with www.kaktusyhk.cz and they confirmed that orders sent after 1/1/21 would need phyto and CITES 1 certificates for orders to the UK. At 500 / 1000 Kc each, these would make smaller orders vastly more expensive.
I don't know how much you want to stick to rules. But you might as well allow the seeds to be send to someone in the EU with the certificate, and then let that someone forward it to you via normal mail. I doubt customs will have a good look at a normal looking incoming envelope with some seeds. Pretty sure there are people on this forum that can help you and others in the UK out.

UK customs have opened both packages from you, so I'm not too sure that it will be alright next year...

Updated today.

https://www.cactus-succulent.com/under- ... new-offer/

As there is little or no information on shipping, I paid 8 Euros shipping cost for 122 packets of seeds last year and 3.4% + 0.57 Euros for Paypal. Germination rates were very good, and I mainly ordered cacti.

I placed my order on 15th Nov and received the invoice on 18th Dec.

Hope that helps.

My Polish friend, soon leaving UK and moving to Bavaria, might be placing my orders next year..

You got them via the SABG, to which I donated seeds of M. amoena?
They are very nice plants to grow. Massonias are not shy taking up so much horizontal space, but at least M. amoena stays rather compact next to being quite pretty, luckily.
