Latest seed wishlist – December 2011


This is a different way of asking for seed for the nursery.

The species listed below are those for which the Nursery believes it has adequate seed for the coming year. We will still process and store this seed if it’s given to us. We’d prefer you to use your energy collecting seed from other local species – you might like to use the Plants to Plant section of the SOWN website as a list of desirable species.

Note on Dianella and Lomandra

We have sufficient Lomandra longifolia and have collectors for large quantities of L. hystrix. We need someone to collect one or more of the other local Lomandra spp.- confertifolia, L. laxa and L. multiflora. To our knowledge, those species have never been propagated by SOWN Nursery. Any volunteers?

We need all species of Dianella, but only if they are identified to the species level, for example D. brevipedunculata, D. caerulea. We really need someone to collect one or both of D. longifolia and D. revoluta. Once again, any volunteers?
