PROJECTS

Among the main purposes of the European Nurserystock Association we are working on several important projects which are:

 

 

Quality standards

 

One of the surest ways to develop the nursery market in Europe is to make trading easier within the community. The E.N.A. (European Nurserystock Association) was created to fulfil this need. During its initial meeting, the Association decided to take on the task of establishing simple, universally acknowledged European standards.

 

 

Apprenticeship

 

ENA would like to offer future tree growers and workers in the green industry the opportunity to gain experience on tree-nurseries throughout Europe.The ENA-member organizations have made national lists of local nurseries, who are willing to welcome students or employees of nurseries for a short period of internship.

 

 

Working groups

International Plant Names

 

The intensification of the international trade in nursery products underlines the need for uniformity in the naming of cultivated plants. The new editions of the international "List of Names of Perennials" and "List of Names of Woody Plants" together form a huge step in the right direction. It is most gratifying that both these reference works have been recognised by ENA (European Nursery Association).
