Reference as a trusted seed source:

Design By Nature. is Irelands premier wildflower seed house and has over 15 years inspired a generation of Irish gardeners to grow wild plants and help protect over 200 species of native flora. Its our business Mission, Conservation Grade is a descriptive term to describe how native Irish wildflower seed is produced.

Description: Conservation Grade
Conservation grade seed describes a traditional or sustainable industry (often cottage) where the working practices are described as traditional handcrafted & 'Nature Friendly' and where the origin of the materials used are guaranteed.
All our crops are grown from native Irish sources, so our seed is suitable for nature conservation projects. 
There is no other Conservation Grade range of seed of native origin wildflower seed or plants available in Ireland.
Conservation Grade:
At Design By Nature we collect wildflowers from the wild and bring them back to our nursery and growers who then grow on first generation wild plants, all crops are then destroyed and we re-collect seed from the wild for the next sowing of our commercial crops.

This method of Conservation is the Irish excepted standard to grow and protect wildflowers as through our method wildflowers are kept wild and not cultivated. This method protects the seed trigger and insures natural

Seed Testing
All our seed products are available for testing with the Department of Agriculture, Official Seed testing Station.  tests are carried out mainly for export for germination and phytosanitary (plant health).

All seed is harvested and cleaned by our staff in Ireland and using either traditional methods or using the most modern seed cleaning machinery available the our national seed house. 

Trusted seed source: At Design By Nature the emphasis is on creating living Gene Banks for ' Irish genotypes' and 'native only' species, so that our seed is always vitally native, as all the seed from our crops is only ever sourced in the wild in Ireland.

You can be sure that Design By Nature Irish wildflower seeds are ideal for nature conservation. The proof is that nearly every Irish government agency when they get a chance to sow native species, now uses our seed. Our seed is used in national genebanks and plant collections.
