Tips on Conservation.

Whilst growing on our bulb treasures there are a few simple tips to help us  with the conservation and correct dissemination of the plant material in your garden.

------------------------------------------------

  • ensure your material is from wild collected seeds, (for wild collected collections).

  • ask your bulb supplier for any history of the bulbs that you purchase.

  • when purchasing bulbs, also ask for collection details, where did the collector first obtain the material?

  • teach your children about the benefits of gardening and conserving bulbs.

  • ask for rare bulbs at your local nursery supplier. This may prompt more conservation indirectly. It is only when the consumer asks for a product when the supplier realizes it is available and should supply it. It is a very subtle yet powerful thing. This in turn and in time would be very useful for conservation.

  • Share your bulbs when they set seeds with other enthusiasts.

  • Remember to mention in your what will happen with your bulbs when you go back to His 'Great Garden' in the sky.

-----------------------------------------

If you can think of more tips to add to the above list, please let me know.

Best wishes,

Dash.
