Last week, I took a couple of aspen cuttings to Dundee Botanical Gardens. They will spend a year or two in the nursery of the Native Plant Communities Unit (see http://www.dundee.ac.uk/botanic/garden/collections/)
Their new labels announced them: Populus tremula Tweedsmuir.
They will add genetic diversity to the collection, and are two of the eight I produced after collecting roots on the A701 (see https://inthepresenttense.net/2011/03/15/plantcollecting-on-the-a701/)
Specimen 19760128DA in the Native Garden also has expansion plans. I map out lines of runners and ramets radiating from his/her diamond marked trunk:
Indeed, a determined advance by 19760128DA, who is using the right to roam.
