The University of Delaware Botanic Garden, like any other botanic garden, is a repository of botanical collections that supports the mission statement of the institution (See Mission Statement). It is imperative that these collections be documented. UDBG has an official Collections Policy that should be followed at all times, (See Collections Policy). But what happens after a plant is brought into the garden following the Collections Policy? If the proper plant documentation is not recorded as soon as possible, this information is lost and the plant is no longer worthy of the collection. The value of the collection is compromised if it is not properly documented in an organized fashion, following a defined protocol. This document outlines a protocol for accessioning plants.
