  4. I was idly looking through the posts & my eye fell upon a relatively recent post by someone wanting rose seeds. I logged in & was redirected miles from the post I wanted to post on & couldn't find it again. Hopefully whoever posted that will read this: I have some Rosa gallica officinalis plants with rose hips on them right now. The thing with using rose seeds as opposed to cuttings is that they may produce 'sports' (different types from the parent plant) plus I've never had much luck getting the seeds to grow. But if you're willing to wait until after the first frosts, which is when the seeds will be viable, I'm happy to send you some. R. gallica off. is the "Apothecary's Rose"; it is an ancient single flowering rose, first introduced into Britain by the Romans. It is one of the major scent roses & still used in perfumery. As far as I know the best way to extract the scent is by enflurage. Cheers.

  10. Sorting thru my seed stash for the start of spring and came to the realisation I have way more than I'm ever gonna get around to growing, or have the space to grow. So rather than leave them lying around gathering dust for a year, thought i'd give something back to you SABers. Unfortunately its gonna have to be Australian members only due to a lack of funds for international postage. Anyone who's interested please post just once below and I'll use a random number generator with the post numbers to pick a winner eg first reply will start at No 2 (post number) then onwards. There'll be 2 x First Prize, and 2 x Second Prize. So a total of 4 lots to giveaway. All items are seeds, no plants involved. FIRST PRIZE x 2 Acacia floribunda x 20 Acacia acuminata Small Seed x 20 Acacia acuminata Narrow Phyllode x 10 Phalaris arundinacea Turkey Red x Big Medicine x 50 Rivea corymbosa x 10 Capsicum annum mixed x 20 Hawaiin Baby Woodrose x 4 Trichocereus pachanoi OP x 30 Trichocereus bridgesii x Trichocereus pachanoi x 50 Psychotria viridis x 3 Lophophora williamsii x 20 Cereus hildemanianus monstrose cross x 5 Nicotiana rustica x 50 Heimia salicifolia x 50 SECOND PRIZE x 2 Acacia floribunda x 20 Acacia acuminata Small Seed x 20 Acacia acuminata Narrow Phyllode x 10 Phalaris arundinacea Turkey Red x Big Medicine x 50 Rivea corymbosa x 10 Capsicum annum mixed x 20 I'll finish it at midnight Friday 29 August east coast time, and post the results sometime next weekend. And finally, thanks to everyone who's sent me stuff through trades, giveaways or just the goodness of their own hearts. If you recognise some seeds then theyre most probably from you. Without this great community I wouldn't have any of these to giveaway to begin with.
  11.

  13. Hi All, ***** (1) Pavilions at Melbourne's Royal Botanic Gardens being burnt down: So it's true? The Tecoma Pavilion wasn't burnt? Anyone been there to have a look-see since mid May? Even so, I'm thinking that the officially scheduled demand for Tecoma will shoot way up (for weddings, anniversaries, etc.) because the others were destroyed. Meaning (especially in winter) we'll probably be sitting around in the rain, looking at others who are under cover. ***** (2) A new (better) venue from now on: An alternative venue may be called for. Someplace cheap, not too far from the "centre" of Melbourne, with ample parking and weather cover. Glen Iris has been the "centre of population" for Melbourne since the 1990s (q.v. Wikipedia). The Monash Freeway, Metro stations, and bus lines are all close, and I'm sure the parking would be better. It seems the fairest and most democratic place to shoot for, and may result in an increased turnout. Anyone live in that local government area, and want to check out cheap meeting hall rentals? I'm happy to pay $2 to $5 for a warm dry place with a kettle. It's not like we get together all that often. (3) Next actual meeting: When ARE we gonna meet again? I really miss you guys. My propagation successes are still overwhelming the capacity of my garden, so I've got lots of established plants to give away. (4) A name: Maybe change our name from "the melbourne botanical garden ethnobotanical appreciation group" to something a bit less "botanical garden", and maybe with the word "growers" added? (We are uniquely interested in the practial aspects of cultivating and propagating very challenging species from all over the world.) Cheers, Old Man Carl
  14. Hi guys! I'm kinda new on here I guess, a long time lurker. I saw the recent post on peoples opinions on the Koehres seeds and the opinion is the same as mine, pretty average at best. What other sites would you recommend for purchase? Thanks for your time, and I hope to share a few pictures soon and get to slowly know people Thanks in advance!! JT
  15. Hey everyone, I picked up a few macadamia nuts whilst near Main Arm last year for Bluesfest, and upon arriving home I threw two into gardening pots, not expecting much of anything. To my great surprise, one of them took off and I now have a foot high macadamia plant growing in my collection. Given that maccas prefer sub-tropical climates and are native to northern NSW and QLD, can I ever (10 years from now) expect anything from this plant, and will it tolerate Melbourne's chilly winters and frost? Wikipedia states: "Macadamias prefer fertile, well-drained soils, a rainfall of 1,000–2,000 mm, and temperatures not falling below 10°C (although once established, they can withstand light frosts), with an optimum temperature of 25 °C," but I don't necessarily regard Wikipedia's word as law. My one nut (ha!) took off some time after spending winter on the surface of soil in my garden, and by summer's end, was demanding to be noticed. Will it cope with impending winter, or should I bring little mate inside? Thanks for reading! I've attached pics because proud parent. Anyone willing to take a stab at its species? Dunno whether integrifolia or tetraphylla, or a hybrid...

    Christmas Seed Giveaway

    There, that got your attention, didn't it? But are we really giving away the right kind of seed this holiday season? Read on to find out more.. http://theconversation.com/wash-and-go-for-a-weed-free-christmas-holiday-20920 23 December 2013, 7.44am AEST Wash and go for a weed-free Christmas holiday Authors Catherine Pickering Associate Professor at Griffith University Micheal Ansong PhD candidate at Griffith University Disclosure Statement Catherine Pickering has received funding and/or conducted consultancies from the Queensland Government, Brisbane City Council, New South Wales National Parks and the Australian Alps Liaison Committee,,the National Climate Change Adaptation Research Facility and the Cooperative Center for Sustainable Tourism. Micheal Ansong does not work for, consult to, own shares in or receive funding from any company or organisation that would benefit from this article, and has no relevant affiliations. While native in Europe, gorse has become one of the world’s worst weeds, particularly in Australia and New Zealand. Flickr: orangebrompton As Christmas and summer holidays approach, many of us are packing our bags, ready to drive off on holidays to see families and friends. Those long car trips are often to coastal towns, national parks and other stunning landscapes. But before we all set off, it’s worth giving a thought to what else may be coming along for the ride. There are more than 625 species of plants worldwide that have seeds that can attach and be dispersed by cars, according to our recent systematic review, published in PLoS ONE. Nearly all of these plants (96%) are considered a weed somewhere in the world, and 370 of them have been introduced to Australia and have now spread to a wide range of habitats. Why does carrying weed seed matter? In Australia, weeds threaten many natural ecosystems as well as invade our gardens, and are a major threat to biodiversity globally. They are also very expensive to manage, with the estimated cost of weeds to Australian agriculture a massive $4 billion a year. Worst weeds to watch for Nine of the worst weeds in Australia have seed than can be carried on cars. Weeds growing on road verge in Kosciuszko National Park. Click to enlarge These include boneseed, Chilean needle grass, serrated tussock, gorse, two species of willows, parthenium weed, blackberrys and mediterranean broom, which are all considered to be “weeds of national significance”. Gorse alone is thought to cost well over $1 million a year in lost productivity, mainly in Victoria and Tasmania. With its masses of bright yellow flowers, this tough prickly shrub can produce up to 6 million seeds per hectare each year, which can then last up to 30 years. As well as dominating old pastures, riverbanks and roadsides, gorse is a flammable species that is becoming an increasing problem in national parks, including the Blue Mountains, Barrington Tops National Park and the Australian Alps. One car, thousands of seeds Although individually our cars may only carry a few seed, collectively it all adds up. With more than 12.7 million passenger cars on the road in Australia, we estimate that there are between 25 million and 51 million seeds carried on cars on any given day in Australia. In one of study by Nigel Wace that we reviewed, the sludge from just one car wash in Canberra was found to contain an astonishing 18,566 viable seeds. Cars can carry seeds long distances, much further than by many natural means such as wind and water. Although most seed is likely to be dispersed at shorter distances (up to 40 kilometres), some seed is transported more than 250 kilometres on cars. Weed seed hiding places So where on your car might all these seeds be? Seeds can be found in lots of places, including wheels, wheel rims, under the chassis, front and back mudguards, and in the interior, particularly the floor mats on the driver’s side of the car. They can also travel on arches and bumper bars. Where and when you drive matters too. Driving on a paved road collects less seed than driving on an unpaved road. When it’s dry, fewer seeds may attach to your car, but they may then be carried further than driving on a wet day. If you get lots of mud on your car, it’s likely it will contain a lot of weed seed, particularly if you drive across paddocks, road verges or go four wheel driving. Carrying weed seed may not be such an issue when you’re driving in cities, but when you’re heading into remote natural areas, you may be bringing weeds with you. So what can you do about this problem? It’s easy: just give the car a quick wash before you head out on that holiday. Then pack your bags, drive safely, and have a great summer break.
