I want to start a small back yard nursery and I'm trying to make a selection of plant variaties to propagate. Often the variaties I want to use  are PBR protected and so not allowed to propagate for commercial purpose.

Can somebody tell me if there excist a lists, database or website on the internet were I can search if a cultivar is PBR protected or not?

Best regards,

Pieter Nijhoff

Maybe I overlook something but if I look for example for Astrantia's or Brunnera on the 'Special Edition of Plant Breeders’ Rights and the UK National Lists' doesn't show any cultivars.

No, i'm sorry but this is not what I'm looking for. The list is not a complete overview of PBR protected variaties.

I'm looking for a  list or database which can tell me when a plant is PBR protected. For instance: Brunnera macrophylla "Jack Frost" I know this ones is PBR protected but is does not show on the FERA list.

If you go to the RHS Horticultural Database and search on Brunner macrophylla Jack Frost it gives you information including the fact that Plant Breeders Rights are registered, so it presumably has the other information you need.

I suggest that if you're going into horticulture you should join the RHS; I'm sure they will be a source of much useful information for you.
