I don't know, but why would you want to when on the plants that thrive on the island are already here - Happy Plants, Oasis Park Garden Center Puerto del Rosario, and the Garden Center at Oasis Park, La Lajita.

Also, I wonder are palms in Fuerteventura expensive ? got a feeling they are ? I can get cheap ones from Germany etc. I went to Oasis park and saw quit a small palm over 100 euros ?. That was back in 2013 though. I want to also grow the anti cancer fruit tree, Soursop Tree.

I can imagine that there are strict controls over the import of plants and palms. The Canary Islands have ereadicated the threat of the Red Palm Weevil which was a majr threar that started about 10 years ago.

Growing trees and plants here is difficult. It's best to stick to those that exist here already.
