A Plot To Save Plants

Record #:
People who want native plants in home gardens have two choices: go to the natural areas where they grow and dig them up or go to nurseries where the staff goes to the natural areas and digs them up. Either situation puts a strain on the natural area's ability to keep producing these wildflowers, bushes, and ferns. Early discusses a plot of the North Carolina Botanical Garden in Chapel Hill to raise these engendered plants on a 350-acre site, and then harvest the seeds for resale to commercial nurseries or private gardeners.
