Importation of Palms Update

Please be aware that Defra have advised that some plants and plant produce are prohibited from entering this country from outside the EU while others must meet certain requirements and be accompanied by a phytosanitary certificate.

Importers must check if a plant or plant product requires phytosanitary certification to be allowed entry into the EU. You must register with Defra before you import any controlled plants or plant products.

These certificates confirm that the goods have been inspected in their country of origin and meet EU standards on the absence of pests and diseases.
