  1. Plants that are Pure Canterbury
    Promoting Genetic Purity
  2. Native plants are best adapted to growing in their local conditions. The same species from different areas can differ in frost hardiness, drought tolerance, salt tolerance and pest resistance.

    For any restoration project it is essential that plants are sourced from similar communities as close as possible to the restoration site.

    This is called Genetic Sourcing.

    Protecting and  Restoring

  3. Planning a Project?
