Mainly an assortment of Eucalyptus plus New Zealand native shrubs.
Reasons for the lack of success I can only speculate on, my feeling is
I need to pay more attention to scarifying the seed.
Direct seeding of Tagasaste (Chamaecytisus palmenis) duff into
shallow furrows (± 20cm/8") has been pleasingly successful. The
area is higher and drying and I'm optimistic they will survive this time.
