It’ll be interesting to see

It’ll be interesting to see what the implications of this new law in South Africa are on ornamental horticulture. South African flora is an important source of plant material in western commericial horticulture, and whilst I disapprove of patenting or PBR on plant material sourced directly from the wild, that plant material still has an important rôle to play in the development and breeding of commercial plant varieties. I’ll be watching this one with interest.
