In case of disaster, the more prepared you are for response, the better your collection will fare. In a perfect world, you would save all the plants in the collection. But this is not always possible. Assigning priority levels to your accessions and storing this information in your plant records database will help you determine which plants need special protection or genetic replacements in case of disaster. This information will also allow you to evaluate and critically look at your collection’s strengths and weaknesses. Accession priority levels will help you when building collections and when undergoing garden renovation.
