    Hi We always look at the tiny plants on sale at the behind the seeds entrance but have resisted buying them as we are not sure if we can bring them back to the UK. are they grown and sealed in such a way that customs will allow us to bring them home

    Hello Andrea and thanks for bringing such an interesting question to us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel.
    As a keen gardener and a big fan of Living with the Land plus being the current British Mum here on the Moms Panel your great enquiry about bringing plants into the United Kingdom from the United States of America really did spring right out at me!
    I know just the little plant stand you're thinking of which is located near the Tour Desk where Guests can sign up for the fascinating 1 hour walking tour Behind The Seeds.  Whilst I'm quite sure the little seedlings on sale would be protectively sealed for transportation I would suggest that prior to any plant purchase taking heed of the Travel Abroad section of the Gov.UK website for any current official advise on bringing food, animals or plants into the United Kingdom from countries outside of the EU.
    I have a fun shopping suggestion which may grow on you!  If you're anything like me and enjoy souvenir hunting then Epcot certainly benefits from a plethora of shops with my favourite being the Mitsukoshi Department Store located within the Japan Pavilion.  I adore browsing in this unique shop and love participating in the super fun Pick-A-Pearl where Guests can choose and then purchase an oyster containing a real pearl which can then be mounted in a beautiful piece of jewellery to take home and treasure forever.
    Magical wishes.
