This work consists of two studies. One is based on an inquiery to nurseries with production of woody plants, and the other on visits to gardencenters, primarily in Skåne but also in Stockholm. Inquieries where sent to 87 nurseries, 48 of them replied. The purpous of the inquiery was to make a thorough investigation of the ligneous production at the Swedish nurseries, what is produced and in what quantities. Within the inquiery was also a thorough look at the fruit tree production. This to be able to conclude what cultivars that are produced and how large part of that production that is certified according to the Swedish Board of Agriculture (SJV). All companies that deal with professional production and sales of nursery plants shall be register and approved by SJV to have a certified production. The companies then participate in a yearly controll that SJV stands for (2). The inquiery shows that the outdoor production mainly consists of hedge-, landscapeplants and ornamental shrubs grown in containers. The result also shows that that the production of solitary shrubs has increased in 2002 compared to 1999. 50% of the companies that produce fruit trees use 76- 100% certified, improved material and 35% of the companies use 76- 100% certfied root-stocks in their production. Nine gardencenters were visited in Skåne and three in Stockholm. The intention of the quality controll was to investigate the quality and the price of plants and if there was any difference between the gardencenters. The variety of fruittrees and roses was noted and a check was done to see if price and quality correlated. The investigation shows that there is a large variation in price and quality between different gardencenters. Furthermore the investigation shows that price and quality does not allways correlate. There are also a larger number of different varieties for sale in the nurseries than in the gardencenters. The litterature study describe the nurserybranch during the 20th century and the system of regulation that applies to Sweden concerning woody plants and how that system is adapted to EU.
