Plant Production

The large scale propagation of plants that are unique to an area, can be achieved through modern methods of micro-propagation. Numbers can be quickly bulked up from small quantities of original plants to achieve cost effective propagation compared to traditional methods.

Plants are grown from mother plants sourced from a specific site or location. Where suitable, seed collection can be used for propagation. Local provenance or propagation material adds to the robustness and suitability of the planted material.

Fungal root associations are significant to plants establishing in hostile environments. Work carried out in conjunction with Sheffield University, has developed a technique for inoculating the young plants, with the correct fungi for development of such hyphal strands.
