A list of 15 species has been proposed by the IPG network which includes a few species native to Ireland. In late March 2004 the IPG Central Coordinating Laboratory at the Humboldt University of Berlin provided clones of 13 species. These have now been planted in the north-western part of the garden. As it may be some time before we are able to obtain the full quota of suitable cloned specimens, we have also planted a selection of native species proposed by Trinity College Botany Department together with some taken from a longer list in the Woodland Trust's booklet A Guide to Recording Spring and Autumn Events in Nature's Calendar. The native specimens have been provided by Woodside Nursery, Ashford, Co. Wicklow, and Future Forests, Co. Cork.
