Terms and Conditions of Use
Seed and spores, hereafter referred to as ‘items’, are supplied on the condition that they are cultivated for the common good, benefiting areas of conservation, display, education and scientific research within botanical gardens and research institutions.
Any commercial use or transfer of items, including its products or derived resources, to a third party with commercial intentions will require the permission of Glasgow Botanic Gardens (the Gardens) and a separate agreement.
All items listed are subject to terms and conditions of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (1975) and the Convention on Biological Diversity (1992). It is expected that botanic gardens and research institutions acquiring plant material from the Gardens will also act in the spirit of the aforementioned conventions. Terms and conditions assigned to an item by the original source may also apply.
Items are the result of open and controlled pollination and hybridisation may have occurred. The Gardens cannot guarantee items are verified.
The following order form utilises botanical nomenclature which is consistent with our collections at the Gardens and The Plant List Version 1.1 (2013).
Botanical gardens and research institutes requesting material must be either members of the International Plant Exchange Network (IPEN), and utilise items in accordance with the IPEN Code of Conduct (2003), or be willing to sign the agreement on the supply of living plant material for non-commercial purposes leaving the IPEN and abide by the terms and conditions outlined.
The agreement on the supply of living plant material for non-commercial purposes leaving the IPEN form is available by clicking here and completed agreements can be submitted at the bottom of the page.
