Customs/Border force chilli question!

Anyone on the BBS ITK about customs border force regulations on importing fresh chilli into the UK?
I have grown some 'Trinidad Scorpion' chilli's in my garden(in Australia) and wanted to send some over to my best mate in the UK. Am I allowed to do this? My missus has some flower seeds she wants to send too to my mates missus(just ordinary flowers not "funny cigarette" ones)....I know it all sounds very hippy but would appreciate it if anyone with knowledge could help me out.
Thanks in anticipation!

I couldn't send such stuff through the Australian border controls .... FFS they took a banana off me that the Qantas flight crew had just given me going into Perth...so no I'm guessing not unless you are a proper importer exporter with licences....into Australia so why would the UK be different?

It does seem over the top coming into Aus but I guess they have their reasons...

The only problem will be leaving Australia, but even then when I've gone places with food as gifts Australia doesn't mind things leaving.. only coming in and when you declare it, they are usually fine about it as long as the items are cooked and don't contain seeds.

I've never had a problem bringing food into the UK from various places. Either in my luggage or through the mail. Wrap them, put them in a plastic tub, seal the tub, and put it in your luggage.

Australia are amazingly tight on any foodstuffs in and out of their country. Like someone else above, I was stopped at customs leaving Oz, because I had wooden carved fruit in my case. I had to explain that it had been cleared for me by the retailer. The guy picked it up and shook it, sniffed it, and was reluctant to let it go through. Eventually he did, and overlooked my bottle opener with a knife attachment that I had inadvertently left in my hand luggage.

My mother in law had a box of crystallized fruit confiscated by the Aussie customs, because they were fruit.
