PINE SEEDS FOR SALE
ORDER FROM THIS PAGE
WOLLEMIA NOBILIS SEEDS HERE!
delighted to announce that we have a limited amount of Wollemi Pine seeds
available for sale to the general public. These seeds from the now
famous, yet still critically endangered Wollemi Pine, are bound to be a
hot commodity - so order yours today!
BUMPER CROP! WE'RE KEEPING MOST OF THESE WOLLEMI PINE SEEDS FOR OUR
OWN USE, BUT HAVE DECIDED TO RELEASE A FEW TO THE PUBLIC.
The reason we
are making these seeds available is because we understand the frustration
involved, (especially here in North America), of trying to obtain this
plant. We have received inquiries about purchasing Wollemi Pines
from all over the world, but the majority have come from the United States
and Canada. As we are currently unable to ship live plants across
international borders, this is a way to help plant enthusiasts in all parts
of the world to finally have a chance to own one of their own.
The seeds that
we have obtained came from a small group of Wollemi Pines. Other
seeds from this same group have proven viable, with dozens of new wollemi
'babies' being germinated from them, and it is our opinion these seeds
have indeed been pollinated and are good to go!
CLOSE UP VIEW OF THE WOLLEMIA NOBILIS SEEDS WE ARE OFFERING FOR SALE.
There are dozens
of techniques used to get these seeds to germinate, and we suggest the
buyer do some serious research into it before planting their seeds.
Of course how you decide to try is completely up to you, but here is some
general information the buyer may find of interest...
important step before planting your seeds is to soak them in water for
a period of AT LEAST 24 hours, (some people report soaking them for a week!).
Seeds that sink to the bottom of the container are reportedly the good
seeds, while the ones that remain floating are said to be the 'duds'.
Personally, we would plant ALL the seeds regardless of whether they sink
or not...why take any chances? After the seeds have been given a
good soaking, dry them out completely and then plant them, (note, some
folks report putting the seeds into a refrigerator for 1 or 2 weeks before
different types of soil have been reported for germinating the seeds, from
nearly all sand, to mulch, to a plain old store-bought potting mix.
This species does favor acid soil though. In their natural habitat
the pH is as low as 4, and in potted cultivation they favor a pH of less
than 6. Like most plants, they do NOT like any sort of standing water.
Make sure the soil has excellent drainage and keep it moist, not soaking
prime conditions the seeds will begin to sprout in as little as 6 weeks.
That being said, we feel we should mention a story we recently heard from
a lady who has successfully germinated 36 wollemi seedlings. She
planted them outside last season (2013) and had NONE come up. She
assumed the seeds she had planted were no good, then late this Spring (2014)
they popped up! She nearly pulled them out as weeds before realizing
what they really were. The seeds endured temperatures as low as -15
C during the winter. It is NOT necessary for the seeds to be frozen
before germinating, we just mentioned this because we thought it was quite
fascinating that they can take such temperatures. If you don't see
any new plants in 6 weeks from your seeds, don't give up on them.
They may indeed just be taking their time!

As mentioned above,
these seeds were taken from a small group of Wollemi Pines. The female
cones were exposed to plenty of pollen from neighboring male cones and
appear to be well developed. It is our opinion that these seeds are
healthy and viable. Each individual order will be sent a sample of
seeds from more than one tree to increase the chances of receiving pollinated
GOOD LUCK AND
HAPPY PLANTING! : )
