British wild plants for wildlife schemes

Describes the effects of planting alien species and non-native ecotypes in wildlife projects in town and country. This widespread problem has arisen from a variety of causes from vague purchasing specification to fraudulent substitution in larger projects, and misleading seed labelling and purchaser ignorance in garden centres.

The article stresses importance of using native stock.
