Here at English Woodlands we are proud of our attention to detail and the health of our plants is paramount. We always aim to supply great quality plants and we maintain strict vigilence in light of the fact that there is increasing threat from pests and diseases.
We are delighted, therefore, to have, once again, been awarded our 'Plant Healthy' certification. This is an industry scheme which is independently audited. It is designed to improve and recognise good biosecurity practice in the UK horticultural industry.
To counter the threat from plant pests, Defra's Plant Biosecurity Strategy for Great Britain implemented certification schemes to improve biosecurity in the UK horticultural sector. The scheme aims:-
- To make it easy to identify businesses or organisations that trade and grow plants to a high plant health and biosecurity standard.
- Reduce the risk of introducing / spreading destructive plant pests via plant supply chains.
- Protect the horticulture industry, other cultivated plants and natural habitats.
