The National Plant Collection® scheme  

What is a National Plant Collection® ?

Plant Heritage's mission is to conserve, grow, propagate, document and make available the amazing resource of cultivated plants that exists in the UK.

Our main conservation vehicle is the Plant Heritage National Plant Collection® scheme where individuals or organisations undertake to document, develop and preserve a comprehensive collection of one group of plants in trust for the future. Most of the collections are based around a related group, for example a collection of oaks or daffodils. This allows the scheme to develop systematic coverage of cultivated plants in the UK and Ireland.

Our Missing Genera campaign aims to highlight several much-loved garden plants that are not currently in a Collection. Read about it here.
