The collection of eco-sourced seed is a routine part of our nursery propagation system. For contract grown plants we endeavor to collect seed from as near as possible to a subject property (e.g. 5 – 10km radius or within the same catchment) and we can provide this service for projects nationwide. For speculatively grown plants we collect seed specific to Auckland Ecological Districts e.g. Rodney ED, Kaipara ED, Tamaki ED, Waitakere ED and Hunua ED.
We also provide seed collection services to organizations such as Trees for Survival (TFS), Auckland Council Parks, community/ landcare groups and other nurseries.
Detailed records of provenance is kept for all seed collected and remains identifiable until plants are dispatched. This means all plants can be traced back to their collection source.
