  • Establishing the National Seed Bank of Wales: Collecting, Conserving and
           Restoring the Welsh Flora

    • Authors: Kevin McGinn
      Abstract: Seed banks are an efficient method of ex situ plant conservation, capable of conserving vast genetic diversity within a small space. In 2018, the National Botanic Garden of Wales (NBGW) started on a journey to establish a new seed bank focused on conserving the Welsh flora to expand its native plant conservation activities. Now equipped with facilities allowing professional long-term seed conservation within two lab spaces in NBGW’s Science Centre, the National Seed Bank of Wales has become a valuable resource for plant conservation and research in Wales. This article describes how the new seed bank has evolved and how it operates, which may inform other small-to-medium size botanic gardens looking to develop seed collecting and banking activities. When based at a botanic garden, seed banks are an excellent resource uniting the horticultural, scientific and educational expertise of staff. Wider benefits beyond long-term seed conservation include improving short-term storage methods of seed grown by the horticulture department for conservation and display; and training horticulture and science students. An associated trial of harvesting and marketing seed from NBGW’s wildflower-rich hay meadows for restoration purposes has also proved successful and commercially viable, helping to fund our conservation activities.

  • Parasitic plant cultivation: examples, lessons learned and future

    • Authors: Chris Thorogood; Joko Ridho Witono, Sofi Mursidawati, Andreas Fleischmann
      Abstract: Parasitic plants contain some of the most bizarre and fascinating organisms in the plant kingdom. Yet they are notable for their absence from botanic gardens’ plant collections and conservation strategies. Besides a handful of species, few are widespread in cultivation; indeed we estimate at least 76 per cent of species are entirely missing from collections today, and most of these have never been grown at all. Here, we place focus on the holoparasites, a group of plants long neglected due to their difficulty in cultivation. We review propagation breakthroughs in temperate and tropical botanic gardens to identify guiding principles for the cultivation of these neglected plants. We document the life cycle of a range of parasitic plants, and assess successful and failed attempts to propagate Rafflesia specifically, which has been the focus of decades of research. By uniting isolated case studies from around the world, we identify future directions for the cultivation and possible ex situ conservation of these botanical enigmas at a time when this is needed urgently. Finally, we recommend a dedicated global community of purpose as an intentional step forward: this could take the form of a Global Consortium for Conservation for parasitic plants, or a Parasitic Plant Specialist Group under the International Union for Conservation of Nature.

  • Growing roses without chemicals: transitioning the collection at Auckland
           Botanic Gardens (New Zealand) 2000–2020

    • Authors: Emma Bodley; Paula Lollback, Jack Hobbs, Mere Brewer, Rebecca Stanley
      Abstract: The Rose Garden at Auckland Botanic Gardens displays rose cultivars which perform well and remain healthy in Auckland, New Zealand, without pesticide applications. Miticides, insecticides and fungicides are not used. Suitable cultivars are chosen for public display to inspire gardeners and encourage visitors to make their own rose selections based on personal preferences from an array of proven performers. These are identified to the public as ‘Star Performers’. Here the process of trialling, identifying and displaying old shrub and modern rose cultivars that have achieved Star Performer status over the past 20 years is presented. This work demonstrates the role that botanic gardens can play in promoting sustainable horticultural practices.

  • Where have all the heathers gone'

    • Authors: Charles Nelson; Michael Pirie
      Abstract: Heathers have been cultivated for several centuries, both the hardy heaths (Calluna, Daboecia and Erica) from the northern hemisphere and the more frost-tender species of Erica from southern Africa known as Cape heaths. In the late 19th century, a number of heather gardens were created, especially in Britain, and the popularity of heathers as long-lasting garden plants reached its zenith in western Europe and temperate North America in the late 20th century. At about the same time, deliberate breeding and selecting of Calluna vulgaris (ling) for flowers that lack normal sexual parts and remain bud-like led to a revolution in heather production with tens of millions of these bud-bloomer Calluna propagated each year for an ephemeral trade dominated by throwaway plants. Concomitantly, the diversity of hardy heathers offered by the trade has declined sharply with a small number of artificially raised clones, protected by plant breeders’ rights, now dominating the market. In contrast, the discovery of living lineages of a few Erica species that are extinct in the wild in South Africa has led to successful reintroduction programmes, particularly of Erica verticillata. The Erica Conservation Consortium, inaugurated in 2020, aims to coordinate and prioritise ex situ conservation of endangered Cape heaths.

  • Plant Selection for Living Roofs in Auckland, New Zealand

    • Authors: Emma Bodley; Robyn Simcock, Rebecca Stanley
      Abstract: An extensive living roof is constructed with load bearing structures with a deep layer of soil media that supports a range of plants. Living roofs have environmental benefits, particularly in an urban setting, such as slowing water runoff and promoting evapotranspiration. Auckland Botanic Gardens (ABG) has been trialling different native and exotic plant species on living roofs to identify top performing plants for these unique growing conditions. The living roofs at ABG were constructed and planted in 2010, so after 10 years of observations, we are able to provide plant lists of what has worked well, challenges with the type of roofs we have, and the adventive species observed.

  • Guest Essay A lesson for Botanic Gardens from the Covid-19 pandemic:
           reaching wider audiences through online activity

    • Authors: Beverley Glover
      Abstract: The power of botanic gardens to connect people to plants has traditionally stemmed from the physical interaction between visitors and living collections. However, the Covid-19 pandemic forced many botanic gardens to consider alternative, online programmes of engagement. Here I argue that this experience has been revelatory, showing us that digital approaches provide the power not only to reach a wider audience, but to connect more deeply with that audience if the content is carefully designed. The new opportunities provided for connecting people to plants will be an important part of botanic garden engagement programmes in the years ahead.

  • Botanic Garden Profile Gullele Botanic Garden, Addis Ababa (Ethiopia):
           Current status, Challenges and Opportunities

    • Authors: Talemos Seta; Birhanu Belay
      Abstract: Gullele Botanic Garden (GBG) was founded through a joint venture between Addis Ababa University and Addis Ababa City Government. Since its establishment in 2010, it has developed its infrastructure and carried out a range of activities related to plant conservation, research, environmental education and ecotourism in line with its vision and mission. Key activities described in this paper are the five different uses of GBG land; the installation of a weather station; and the construction of a mini-greenhouse for plant acclimatisation, the multipurpose Agora II (an eco-friendly building with a green roof), a thematic garden and a nursery. The lists of endemic plants (65), large mammals (11) and endemic bird species recorded are presented in Appendices I, II and III respectively. The main activities and works carried out by GBG are not yet widely known to local and international communities. Through describing the garden’s current status, challenges and opportunities, this paper aims to increase awareness among the scientific community and more widely of GBG’s activities and intentions for protecting Ethiopia’s flora.
