Use the seed within 6 months, germination is from weeks. Eucalyptus Select oldest seed cases at least 12 months old. Shake and tap seed out fully as the fertile seed is at the bottom. All eucalypts have a lot of packing which often makes up 80% of content. The actual seed will be dark brown/black in colour. No treatment necessary.

        For many native rainforest plants the best way to get viable seeds is from droppings or pellets. For example currawong pellets are often chockers with the seeds of native plants - the germination rates from these pellets are much greater than seeds collected from the parent tree.

      The seeds of both species require the same germination techniques and will germinate erratically, but generally within 14 to 30 days. 1 Start the seeds indoors in the winter. In nature, some seeds require particular conditions to germinate, such as the heat of a fire (e.g., many Australian native plants), or soaking in a body of water for a long period of time. Others need to be passed through an animal's digestive tract to weaken the .

Based on nearly 50 years of experience at Kings Park and Botanic Garden in Perth, the book describes the necessary growing conditions for mainly Western Australian native plants and covers some of the more technical aspects such as plant propagation and grafting, the use and benefits of tissue culture, methods of seed collection and storage, and the role of smoke in improving by: 3.

Advantages of seed include the protection given from drying out, predators and pathogens to the embryo, and the nutrients they provide for germination. Seeds are produced as part of the reproductive system of plants. Many species are difficult to grow from seed.
