Supporting the Global Partnership for Plant Conservation

The National Botanic Gardens is a member of the Global Partnership for Plant Conservation.

As such, we remain committed to supporting and promoting national and international scientific research, education, conservation, and sustainable use of plants by making available, as appropriate, genetic material from the collections of the National Botanic Gardens of Ireland to other bona fide users.

All distribution of plant material (including propagules) from the National Botanic Gardens of Ireland shall continue to be in accordance with the provisions of the Nagoya Protocol and the Convention on Biological Diversity, and in support of the Global Strategy for Plant Conservation.

  • Every appropriate effort shall be made to include material of known and documented origins only, unless there is a specific reason for including undocumented material.
  • No known invasive species shall be included in future seed lists
  • No material will be included in the Index Seminum that has been collected in the wild since 1992 in countries other than Ireland, unless specific permission to distribute such material has been given by the relevant authorities in the provider country.

As well as the listed seeds below, we can also, where appropriate, supply material directly from our collections, either as seed cuttings or other propagation material.
