Wakehurst Place Launches Native #Plant Project.

Kew Garden's Millennium Seed Bank has launched a project to create seed stocks to help restore native plants to the UK. Initially the project will concentrate on plants from lowland meadows and semi-natural grassland as 98% of such habitats have vanished in England and Wales since the 1930s.  Seeds from plants like devil's bit scabious, cuckoo flower, green field-speedwell and harebell, can then be harvested and grown on by seed companies for conservation groups and landowners.
