Can I bring seeds to Sri Lanka on air plane ?

I am planning to visit my mum in Sri lanka. My mother likes gardening and she has requested me to bring few vegetable seeds and flower seeds when I visit her. I am going from Canada by air and I can easily buy vegetable and flower seeds here in Canada which are very good.
I am sure my mum will like to grow them and she will have a good harvest. But I just heard that there are regulations on importing seeds and other live plants and animals to Sri Lanka.
I want to know the exact information in this regard as I do not want to run into unnecessary troubles at the air port.

    Plant and plants products (Seeds) are restricted items to Sri Lanka. You will at least have to declare them at the custom.

    Yes it is restricted item and they usually do not allow. Even people who import plants and seeds have to get a special permission. Also, they are very strict on GM (Genetically modified) plants.
