Acacia acuminata seed giveaway

Recommended Posts

Heading back bush next weekend to see how things are progressing. Shouldn't be too long now. Might even set up some drop sheets under the biggest trees so I can get all of it if the next 50 bags don't arrive in time.

 

Keep getting your names down for some of my free broad/typical var and some narrow phyllode seed kindly donated by @Sallubrious

 

I'm thankful that I'm able to give back to this community. I was helped a lot when I first joined some 3 years ago, by some great members, some who are no longer around..

 

:)

When they're ready I'll PM everyone in the thread for a mailing address.

I was a probably a little early in posting this thread but I didn't want people to miss out either, so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ :P

If people want seed, then PLEASE comment on this thread so I can keep count. Don't just inbox me.

 

As above, when seed is ready, I will contact everyone for a suitable mailing address.

 

Cheers again :)

After a hectic morning and a quick flight back to Perth, I got back to the bush and checked the trees. Most pods are still green but some are starting to go yellow, as seen below..

Alright, so, I have a monster size bag of Acacia acuminata seed from @Sallubrious. Big thanks for adding a very generous amount of seed for this giveaway! Looks very nice!! I will be back bush in 2 weeks to check my seed bags and freehand collect also. They were nearing done when I went up last week.

 

People will get:

 

A acuminata broad phyllode/typical var (WA wheatbelt provenance)

A acuminata narrow phyllode var (from wherever Sallubrious lives)

 

Get on it!

Went up today and there is a few trees done and some are another week or so away from being done. Removed most bags and freehand picked what I could see. Once all bags are off and I've got all the seed ready I'll start sending out. Hopefully around xmas~

@MountainGoat @MORG @Glaukus @kai @od101010 @Tasman @bardo @Dicko @teamwhy @tarenna @Flux @MrWormwood @noname @Zedo

 

Seed is in a big red box via snail mail. Hope to see photos of all your sprouts in the very near future :) 

 

I got some germinations in only 4 days just before xmas from my broad phyllode seed! I noticed quite a few germinations have 3 cotyledons... Unsure what's up with that (1 in 30 or so I noticed?)

 

Enjoy :)
