Barton Grange makes the conscious effort to carefully source all foreign imported plants from Xylella fastidiosa disease free areas.
We have signed and pledged our agreement to the following statement:
“We have taken the decision NOT to knowingly purchase any host plants originating from regions where the disease Xylella is known to exist. The decision has been taken after detailed consideration as to the potential catastrophic impact the introduction of the disease could have to the UK environment, coupled with the ever increasing number of host plant genera of this disease. This is in line with DEFRA’s good practice recommendations.”
