Working across South Australia, we collect, clean and supply a broad range of native seed (both nursery and revegetation grade).  We have particular expertise in the flora of arid and semi-arid systems, and we specialise in the supply of large quantities of native grass and chenopod species.  However, we also collect species to order for our clients; these may include: Eucalyptus species, Acacia species, sedges, rushes, and other understory and ground cover species.

Below is a list of species that we have collected. This list is not comprehensive and we collect many species to order.  Please contact Glenn Christie to discuss your project and species requirements.

*Note that seed is collected from predominantly wild sources so availability will vary with season and conditions (e.g. drought).  It is important to order your seed well in advance of revegetation activities to enable sufficient time for collection (allow 8-12 months for some species).  We recommend the establishment of Seed Orchards for projects with extensive seed requirements.

A Successional Approach

Our unique approach to revegetation involves a ‘ground up’ methodology, which floods a site with seeds of native colonising species. The use of colonising species provides rapid site stabilisation and initiates the process of recovery to build ecosystem function. These species add organic carbon to the soil, attract invertebrates, deposit seed, compete with weeds and provide cover. Colonising species in the arid zone can reproduce within 6–8 weeks of rainfall, bolstering the seedbank. These attributes provide a great catalyst for building ecosystems in the arid zone.
