From seed to seedling

One of our aims for the wetland space is to target a few threatened species and see if we can't provide a safe haven for them. One of these is Teucridium parvifolium. It sits in the Threat Category of At Risk: Declining.

Mike from our local Council popped in one day with some seed he had sourced from a property further up the Wairau Valley. We laid it down and tucked it in to the glass hour over winter and it was soon sprouting.

The tray of seedlings has now been carefully pricked out into root trainers, so now there are about 250 tiny seedlings that will spend the spring summer and autumn building up a good root system. Hopefully next winter we can plant them out in the wetland. We will keep you posted...
