We envision a resilient world dependent on the thoughtful cultivation of plants

Seed Security

Articles: Seed Security

Seed security and responsible horticultural practices are important topics. Following the publication of our story about Digitalis ‘Illumination Flame’ in the Fall 2014 issue we heard from a couple of readers expressing concern about the development of sterile plants and their impact on the environment. We appreciate the input and are thankful for readers who feel strongly enough about an issue to contact us.

Pacific Horticulture—and our contributors—believes in beautiful gardens that are connected to the world at large. We value good design and environmental responsibility equally. This perspective is reflected in our coverage of the many natural systems at work in the landscape including pollinator support, beneficial insects, alongside stories about beautifully designed gardens and recent plant introductions. Certainly seed genetics is a part of this lively mix. As gardeners—and publishers—we want to see gardens that cooperate with nature; after all, we are a part of nature.
