The National Botanic Garden of Wales has launched its own Saving Pollinators Assurance Scheme.
will be able to see the scheme’s logo on selected pollinator plants
for sale at the Botanic Garden’s Y Pot Blodyn Garden Centre and in
other garden centres and specialist nurseries across Wales.
What makes this scheme unique is that the plants displaying the Saving Pollinators logo are:
proven to support pollinators by the Botanic Garden’s research scientists (via DNA barcoding)
grown without the use of synthetic insecticides and peat compost
produced by growers based in Wales
The Saving Pollinators Assurance Scheme has been made possible through Growing the Future, a five year project supporting horticulture within Wales.
