central, Portugal Pt

I HAVE BOUGHT SOME FRUIT TREES TO TAKE TO PORTUGAL IN 3 YEARS TIME WHEN I RETIRE, 2 APPLE TREES, 1 PEAR, 1 PLUM, 1 PEACH, 1 CHERRY, 1 ORANGE, AND 1 LEMON, THEY ARE ALL IN POTS. SHOULD I PUT A NET OVER THEM ?, WILL THE BIRDS DAMAGE THEM ?. WILL THEY CROSS POLLINATE ?
ANY ADVICE ANYONE COULD GIVE ME WOULD BE A GREAT HELP.

I WILL POST SOME PHOTOS THIS WEEKEND.

THANK YOU.............

I agree with Noseypotter. Also the ground may not be suitable for the trees you have bought over here. All of them you could have bought when you get there.

They do have garden centers all over Portugal, and they are the right types for that area. If you are going to get lemons, be sure to get the type that gives them all year long.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR ADVICE, AND CONCERN, I HOPE THE INFORMATION IVE ENCLOSED WILL PUT YOUR MINDS AT REST.

FRUIT TREES IN PORTUGAL ARE NOT AS CHEAP AS SOME OF YOU THINK,PLUS THE FACT ,THAT ON A PENSION I WOULDNT BE ABLE TO AFFORD SUCH THINGS, SO IM BUYING THEM NOW WHILE I CAN.

Good afternoon Mr Montgomery,

There is free movement of plants/plant products and soil for personal use (i.e. not commercial) between EU Member States providing the plants were grown in an EU country and are free from harmful plant pests or diseases.

There is no limit to the quantity and there are very few prohibited plants. Currently the only prohibited plants on personal imports from the United Kingdom to other EU Member States are rhododendron, viburnum and camelia.

The plants may be subject to a random Customs check, however, no Plant Health documentation will be required.

PLEASE NOTE PHSI HAS MERGED AND CHANGED ITS NAME:

On the 1st April 2009, Defra's Plant Health and Seeds Inspectorate and Plant Health Division (incl. Bee Health), the Plant Variety Rights Office and Seeds Division, the Central Science Laboratory and the UK Government Decontamination Service merged to form a new Agency called: The Food and Environment Research Agency.
