"Maintaining these in cultivation is not at all the same as allowing them to survive naturally along with their entire habitat but often these species have already lost much of their habitat or they were extremely local plants in the first place.
In recent years horticulture has sometimes been denigrated. A legislative growth-industry fuelled by bureaucrats and self-serving `charities' attempts to obstruct the free movement of cultivated material internationally between gardeners.
We seek the widest possible dissemination of such material and reassure gardeners that their knowledge, traditional skills and understanding of plant life will be of greater importance in the future than cosmetic legislation."
