This season has seen an unusually abundant (and beautiful) flowering of many of our indigenous species. So the propagating team’s thoughts are turning to seeds because within weeks many of the plants we want to propagate will have ripe seed.
Because of strict controls to protect indigenous species, we are unable to collect seed in the wild without a permit. Occasionally authorities such as the Surf Coast Shire or the Great Ocean Road Coastal Committee give us permission to harvest small amounts of seed of specific species.
Postscript: If you’ve finished your spring planting, we’d be pleased to reuse your forest tubes (preferably washed). Just drop them off in the cage outside the ANGAIR office.

We meet at at the propagation unit behind the ANGAIR office, each Tuesday and Thursday at 9.00 a.m. and continue until we finish at about 12.00 p.m. Anyone with an interest in achieving something special is welcome, and no experience is required.
The ANGAIR Plant Propagation Group is very short of forest tubes and always like more cartons. Please leave them at the ANGAIR Office. Thanks in advance for your support.
