North Yorkshire nursery, Johnsons of Whixley has received its Plant Healthy accreditation for the third year running.
The accreditation recognises suppliers that trade and grow plants of a high standard of health and biosecurity, reducing the risk of introducing or spreading destructive plant pests.
Whilst protecting the horticultural industry, other cultivated plants and natural habitats.
Plant Health supports Johnsons in protecting their woodlands from pests and diseases such as ash-dieback and oak processionary moth and safeguarding native flora and fauna from non-native pests and diseases.
Johnsons’ commercial and business manager, Jonathan Whittemore, says: “You can help with Plant Health by buying responsibly from reputable nurseries and suppliers and avoiding buying plants that have been sourced from areas with high-risk pests and diseases, keeping your boots clean to avoid spreading diseases, looking after your plants and knowing pests when you see them.”
