What is direct seeding?

Direct seeding involves planting seeds where they are to grow, rather than planting them in a pot and transplanting the seedling.

Direct seeding is designed for broad scale revegetation. It is an excellent way to revegetate your property quickly and efficiently using the locally sourced mixed seeds.

Lunch will be provided on the day, don't forget your hats and sturdy footwear!
