Seed Starting Method


Place the seed in a container and cover with warm water and allow to soak overnight.

The swollen seed can then be sown, re-treat seeds that have not swollen yet until you're satisfied that the pre-treatment has worked.

Although most tree seed can be sown throughout the seasons across Australia it is advisable to sow in Spring or Summer in colder regions. The optimum temperate to ensure the best possible germination rate for sowing many tree species is around 18-22°C.

Growing tips


Do not allow your growing medium to dry out whist germination is occuring.

Do not be too hasty to discard seeds that have not yet germinated, seeds will often lay dormant (in hibernation almost) until the conditions are similar to their natural requirements for germination and sprouting to occur. Containers placed to one side & forgotten about will often surprise long after they were discarded.
