Growing natives? Check out this free online database. The Native Plant Propagation Protocol Database serves plant propagators as a clearinghouse for user-generated growing protocols. It’s a way for everyone to benefit from each other’s experience.
Begun at the University of Idaho, the database is today housed at the RNGR (Reforestation, Nurseries and Genetic Resources) website (the largest online collection of articles on native plants for conservation and restoration).
The Native Plant Propagation Protocol includes about 3,000 protocols — all searchable, downloadable and printable. Users are encouraged to support the database by uploading propagation information to expand the knowledge base.
RNGR is operated by the USDA U.S. Forest Service.
