It is very important, for the future of our planet, that the world's plant life has the highest level of protection. And yet, often the scarce funding that is available for conservation projects is used for high profile fauna rather than flora. That's why 10% or more of the sale of every plant will go directly to plant conservation both in botanic gardens and in the wild. Some of the projects supported can be found here.
The species available are selected because of their interesting stories, conservation value or the fact that their wild relatives or habitat really need some help. They are excess to my own propagation and are only available in small quantities and new species will be added as and when they become available.
The majority of the plants sold will have come from seed from cultivated sources, however, some may come from wild collected material. In such an instance we will endeavor to exercise due diligence in making sure that the plants were collected within the laws of the country of origin. Should any research or development be proposed for this material you may be required to set up a agreement with their country of origin as per the requirements of the Nagoya Protocol.
