FAQ for UK PLNTSlovers
The picking time depends on when you place your order. We ship orders to the UK twice a week (Tuesday and Thursday). This means when you order on Friday, your package will be shipped next Tuesday. After we handed over your package to our logistic partner it will take around 2-3 days for your package to arrive. Your package will be delivered by Hermes.
Because of the Brexit we have to arrange a phytosanitary certificate (PC) for every order. This certificate is a statement from the plant health authority that the consignment:
- has been officially inspected
- complies with legal requirements for entry into GB
- is free from quarantine pests and diseases
In addition, the products must be cleared with customs.
The UK has certain size rules when it comes to sending packages. When you don’t see any shipping options it probably means that your package size is too big to send with our logistic partner. If you would like to have some help or more information about this topic please use our “Support chatbox” widget at the bottom left side if your screen.
Great news! We are finally able to ship all our products to the UK again! All orders will be shipped with Hermes and a phytosanitary certificate will be included for every order. The certificate will be checked and removed by customs. Thank you so much for your patience!

Unfortunately, we have not yet been able to make a second attempt to send the remaining orders to the UK. If possible, we will send out the remaining orders by April 30th. If a refund is required in the meantime, customer service can always be contacted.

Unfortunately a few shipments from the UK shipping trial have been returned to us. We are currently investigating the reason why this has happened and how we can prevent this in the future. Has your order been returned to us? No worries! We will send a new shipment to you next week. In case these shipments also get returned we will offer a full refund for your order.

As of March 4th 10:00AM CET we will start a shipping trial to the UK. We will ship roughly 50 orders. During this trial it will be possible to order all our products except our L and XL plants. Unfortunately we cannot send those. The packages will be sent with DHL express and a Phyto certification will be included. If there are problems with customs clearance, you can contact us and we will solve it.

The carriers have started shipping to the UK again, unfortunately they aren’t ready to ship plants yet due to the phytocertification needed. We hope their system for phytocertifications to be ready in the end of March, after we have done some testing in February we believe shipping to the UK will be possible again in the beginning of March. From the current available information the taxes will be 20% for all our products with 0% import duty. This is subject to change.

Currently the carriers do not transport to the UK anymore, therefore we will not be able to take any orders from the UK. We hope that in January it will be possible to make you happy with our PLNTS again, it is all still very uncertain for now. Thank you for your understanding and Happy Holidays. But there is hope!
