Hi Peter,
There needs to be some care in what can be called a national collection. 
NCCPG spent a lot of money trademarking the name ''National Collection" in 
the UK and I expect this has been done elsewhere. Not something I agree with 
as it creates a monopoly; and there's obviously quite a bit of scope for 
other more specific garden organisations to setup their own ''national'' 
schemes, especially where people may not like or want to be members of the 
national body.

Best Wishes,
