Unscrupulous seed importers

Conservation Section, Why we should grow native species. Design By nature - Handing on our Heritage. Unscrupulous seed importers:

Sadly, the global and Irish native seed industry is plagued by unscrupulous seed importers who claim they sell native Irish Wildflower seeds, but in reality they sell cultivated flowers from other countries or genotypes which were once wild, but are now mass produced in nurseries without recourse to replacing the genetic stock. 
While these species can be sown in gardens, it is internationally agreed that they are not advised for countryside, large garden or conservation plantings as they interfere with the true native species of wildflower. see Wildflower seed mixtures are different in price and composition  because...

DBN is a conservation business, our aim is to grow only Native Irish species to provide the seed for our mixtures.  Where a crop fails and we import seed there is notification hosted on this web site. Species imported for seed mixtures

Sunrise Seeds Ireland Ltd, has gone into liquidation, since 2007. They imported seed and sent it nationwide.

Dingle wildflowers has ceased trading as there imported species failed to grow.

The real war on imported weeds. 
Cross pollination of plants can occur up to 8 miles from your garden by wind, insects or bees. if you live in an urban centre, only sow certified single species packets of imported seed from a specialist seed company, these tend to be available in the more honest retail outlets.  Do not sow imported mixtures in rural gardens, see the letter below from Trinity College Botanic Garden, Dublin.

Imported mail order wildflowers are not checked for pests or disease when they enter the country, nor can they contain species native. How could they? they are imported.

Imported wild flower seed mixtures now found in creameries, garden centres and multiples and sold in boxes, usually with grass, are regularly checked by DBN to see what foreign flowers they contain. I find far too much grass for the price and the mixtures contain cultivated 'not so wild flowers' such as Calendula, Californian Poppy and Flax, which can be bought for half the price, elsewhere. 
In effect the seller is a liar. they are not wild, they are in a box.
