First Babies

The first of the TreeProject seedlings are coming up already. About 25% of the Acacia mearnsii (black wattle) tubes have seedlings coming up:
Those that have popped out of their seed cases all have these reddish leaves. I haven't seen leaves this colour on any acacias I've grown in previous years, so it will be interesting to see how long they remain red.


  1. interesting, maybe they are cuckoos! have you hatched A. mearnsii before?
