You are likely to get various answers but to be sure you are probably best to check with the Airline you are flying with to avoid them being confiscated at the Airport.

Hi Liam,

Providing the trees comply with the dimensions allowed for luggage and they are not of an endangered species then I see no problems.

Curious as to why you would want to, plenty available here.

Something special about them?

They may not survive in the climate here. My banana plant from the UK didn't.

What type of fruit trees? I´m going to a couple of garden centres tomorrow so I can see if they are for sale or ask if they can order them.

OK, only being an amateur on this subject, how small is miniature and are they  special strains or just restricted growth-wise by size of pot and pruning?

There is quite a long list of plants that can’t be imported into Spain, regardless of where they’re coming from.

You should check with the the Spanish equivalent of Defra (or Defra in the UK may be able to advise) before you try to import them.
