One Out of 96

It is the first time it has happened to this extent, but I've had a major germination failure with the TreeProject Yellow Box, Eucalyptus melliodora, seeds:
Just one seedling, in 96 tubes. Until today I thought there were none, but this one came up some time earlier this week when I was sick. They were among the first seeds sown this year, on 4th February.  I've already contacted the TreeProject supervisor, and he has had very poor results with this species as well. So we will have to do a lot of transplanting of other species to fill these boxes.
