Two sides of the same coin ― finding common ground among plant conservation professionals and commercial propagators©
If ever asked, Why should we appreciate plants and nature? I can quickly and without hesitation reply, All life depends on plants. Without the worlds flora, life as we know it would not exist. But I have known many others, my friends and colleagues in commercial nurseries and other related professions, who know plants primarily as the source of their livelihood. In growing plants for sale, these people contribute significantly to the global economy and provide well for their families and others.
