Corn Cleavers Reintroduction

In particular, the Garden is working on Target 8: "At least 75% of threatened plant species in ex situ collections, preferably in the country of origin, and at least 20% available for recovery and restoration programmes." This work is being done in collaboration with the Rare Plants Group (part of the Oxfordshire Natural History Society) to help prevent the extinction of rare plants in Oxfordshire.
In 2012 corn cleavers (Galium tricornutum) will be reintroduced into the meadow in Oxfordshire where it was last recorded.
