The last of this year's batch of TreeProject seeds were sown today. To answer earlier questions, I'm one of many volunteers who grow these trees in our backyards. They are going to be used in re-vegetation schemes in country areas of Victoria. In spring they will be ready to plant out, and will go to the land-holders who buy them for a small price from TreeProject. You can read all about how the scheme works on the TreeProject website.

Then gravel mulch on top:
So now there are 672 potential trees and shrubs in my back yard; 96 each of 7 different species. Which will germinate first?
