The Plants For Europe offices will be closed from 24th December and will reopen on 5th January. During the holiday, email and telephone messages will only be checked sporadically.

We will be processing last-minute applications for Community Plant Variety Rights on request, taking advantage of the existing fee levels right up to 31 December, before the new fees come into force on 1 January. Please do not delay if you have an application that you need us to process – we must have certain documentation from you in order to process an application and we must have time to prepare the application. But we remain ready to help and have dealt with a record number of applications this month!

We wish all our customers and friends a happy holiday. We’re looking forward to a very exciting 2015!
