  • Imports from within the European Union

    • There is free movement of plants and plant material within the EU into Guernsey subject to a number of exceptions:
    • The importation of Ash trees (including seed and logs) is prohibited due to the threat from the fungal disease Ash Dieback.
    • The importation of host plants of the bacterial disease Fireblight is strictly regulated.  Fireblight host plants include apples, pears and hawthorn.  This disease is present in the UK and in most of the rest of the EU but is absent from Gsy which has EU Protected Zone Status.  Only officially authorised nurseries are permitted to send host plants to Fireblight Protected Zones such as Guernsey.  
    • Import restrictions apply to a range of tree and woody shrub species originating from mainland EU countries.  Guernsey has EU Protected Zone Status for a number of quarantine pests and diseases that can infect these plants.  Contact us for further advice.
    • The commercial importation of plants is strictly controlled.   Most commercial imports must be accompanied by an EU Plant Passport to indicated that the place of production has been officially inspected and found to be free from quarantine pests and diseases.
  • Imports from outside the European Union

    • All direct imports of plants and plant material from outside the European Union into Guernsey and the rest of the EU are strictly controlled.   
    • The importation of certain plants from outside the EU is prohibited due to the unacceptable plant health risk that they pose.  These include a number of tree species as well as potatoes and other members of potato family such as tomato and petunia.
    • All plants and most seed originating from outside of the EU must be accompanied by a phytosanitary (plant health) certificate issued by the country of export.  This is a declaration that the plant material complies with the EU import requirements.
    • Contact us for further advice.
  • Exports to the European Union

    • There is free movement of plants and plant material from Guernsey to the UK and to France.  Export restrictions do apply in relation to a limited range of plants sent to some other EU Member States.   
    • Commercial plant exports are subject to EU requirements.  Most commercial exports must be accompanied by an EU Plant Passport to indicated that the place of production has been officially inspected and found to be free from quarantine pests and diseases.
  • Exports outside the European Union

    • Restrictions do apply to the export of plants to countries outside the EU and these are dependent upon the requirements of the country of import. 
    • All plants exported to countries outside the EU must be accompanied by a Guernsey phytosanitary (plant health) certificate.  This is a declaration that the plants meet the import requirements of the country of import in respect of freedom from specified quarantine pests and diseases.  These requirements may include a growing season inspection covering the period of active growth of the plants intended for export.
