With increasing world trade comes the increased risk of pests and diseases being introduced to the UK.
The plant passport system within the EC provides a means of allowing free movement of plants within the EC by providing each batch of plants with a “passport” to show from which nursery they originated.
We are inspected by FERA twice each year to ensure our plants are free of notifiable pests and diseases. We regularly check our stock for symptoms of diseases such as Red band needle blight, Fire blight and Phytophthora.
If required we can label each batch of plants with our plant passport number UK/EW22982. This allows you to take plants into EC countries.
We are an approved supplier of UK Provenance stock in accordance with the Forestry Reproductive Material Regulations (2002) regulated by the Forestry Commission.
