Into The Foliage: Plant Trade with Dr David Roberts

February 8, 2021

You know Jan loves a plant bargain & Ryan certainly isn't shy of a house plant or 12 but whenever we buy plants do we ever stop to think about all the work that goes behind managing the trade of plants to ensure nothing bad happens? We didn't, so we planned this chat with Dr David Roberts from the University of Kent to discuss the detailed world of plant trade.

From what makes a plant....illegal to what a plant passport is all about, David, in great detail, tells us all about the management of keeping things legit when it comes to trading plants.
