  1. Happy Wattle Day Everyone! Today is September 1st which is Australia's National Wattle Day, coincidentally with the beginning of spring it is also the best time to germinate seeds for most Acacia (wattle) species! To celebrate I have updated the Acacia courtii propagation guide by expanding it, adding more of a visual element and made it easier to access by locating it here in PDF form to be downloaded and shared. I am very happy to see people relishing the opportunity to grow these plants! Happy Gardening! communacacian_-_Acacia_courtii_and_Other_Friends_From_Seed_to_Tree_2.2.pdf

    Happy Wattle Day!

    what an excellent idea!! you legend. Its very obvious that parks NSW has been recently monitoring the area and I wouldn't be surprised if they haven't already done this, but I think additional cameras is a brilliant idea! Im very keen to make that happen

    Happy Wattle Day!

    Earlier this year when I visited I was devastated to see this destruction and documented it thoroughly, trying to work out what the next step is!

    Happy Wattle Day!

    Happy Wattle Day everyone, Today is September 1st which is Australia's National Wattle Day, coincidentally with the beginning of spring it is also the best time to germinate seeds for most Acacia (wattle) species! To celebrate I would like to give away 50 Acacia courtii seeds. The first 10 members to reply to this post will receive 5 seeds of this very special species. Simply reply below and I will send you a message asking for your postal details. (sorry to the international folks here, this is within Australia only) *Condition Due to the threatened status, rarity of this plant and the scarcity of the seeds, I ask that those who do receive these seeds and successfully raise multiple plants gift one to another member here on SAB. Here are some propagation short notes which can be applied to most species. Acacia courtii Germination tek (short notes) By communacacian Germination medium Simple/Beginners medium: store bought seed raising mix Advanced Medium: coco coir peat 50%, perlite 30%, granatic sand 10%, 3mm river stone 10% Potting mix Beginners: Store bought native potting mix Advanced: Native potting mix 70%, Granatic Sand 10%, 3mm River stone 10%, Perlite 10% and additional native slow release fertiliser. You can mix in a small amount of inoculant soil too. 1. Put seeds in mug and put a kettle on 2. Once water is boiling pour over seeds in mug (fill up a few centimetres above seeds) 3. Once water has cooled add a teaspoon of rhizobial inoculant soil to the water and gently mix. (Most Acacia species do not require inoculation to aid germination but it helps with overall health and vigor once germinated. Inoculant soil can be collected from your local Acacia tree, just take a small handful of soil from the base of the tree, very little is required so no need to disturb the roots of the tree.) 4. Allow to sit for a further 24-48 hours then strain the seeds. 5. Fill up seedling tray with germination medium leaving a 1cm gap from the top. A small tray can do 10 – 20 seeds, a larger one can do up to 100. 6. Place seeds on top of your mix leaving 1cm gap between seeds. 7. Cover with another layer of germination medium filling up to the top of the tray and top with a thin layer of 3mm river stone. 8. Sprinkle inoculation soil over the tray and water in. 9. Set on heat mat with a thermostat or propagation table with temperature set to 23c. Alternatively set in warm place with good light. Water daily. 10. After two to four weeks seeds will begin to germinate. Once they are about 1-2cm tall. Gently pluck them out by using a dip stick (a thin pencil like object) and your hand to gently jiggle them out of the mix without breaking any roots. 11. Transfer into pots or tubes with your chosen potting mix. Best way to do this is put some soil in the bottom of the tube, hold the seedling with roots straight down with one hand and fill in soil around it with the other. You aim to get the soil to come to just where the roots meet the trunk and that level should be half a centimetre from the top of the tube 12. Water in with Seasol and keep in a place protected from harsh sun (such as a greenhouse with good airflow or a light shade cloth). Water daily and top dress with native slow release fertiliser every three months or as required. Happy Gardening

    @Dicko Tubes my friend, PM for inquiry
  12. Id recommend building a poly tunnel with star pickets and 2 inch poly pipe. Be sure to put adequate ventilation, airflow is very important! either doors at either end or a large window at one end and a door at the other. You can make shade areas using the same polypipe/star picket combo, just stretch and staple shade cloth over the frame. Its can be good to have a few shade areas, one medium density, one light. I use the poly purely for propagation and once seedlings are big enough to handle the outdoor conditions you can move them out to the medium density after a few weeks move to the lighter one then finally to full sun to harden them (in the haert of summer for instance). The idea is to have the best success with the seeds you have, so hardening them up is something to do once they are established imo. depends what you are growing but critical if you are working with rare species with limited access to seed. I would also agree to grow with the seasonal flow of things C
