Technically until December 31th 2020 it is possible to ship plants to the UK. However from 1st of January 2021 plants coming from the EU will need CITES and phytosanitary documents. The extra cost, time and paper work makes it for us unprofitable to ship any longer to the UK/Gibraltar. Deadlines for the last shipments by courier are Sunday 13th of December 2020, 12.00 hour. If we get overwhelmed by orders the deadline can be earlier. We regret that we no longer can ship to the UK/Gibraltar and hope in the future to find a way to do so.
