    Kevy I don’t wish to be greedy. If you have no takers I would happily take more as I can share it with others. Over to you!

    Kevy see this link on the site for harvesting seed pods.

    There’s also some excellent info on how to separate the seeds from the fluff (kapok like). Caryl

    only had about 4-5 make it through this season as we have a major ant problem due to the lack of rainfall over the last 5 years
    have laid lots of ant bait and knocked back about 50%
    but at least this year the plant had a chance to pod
    since all my plants got wiped out in 2014

    Thanks – the upturned point to the end of the fruit (seed pod) shows it is G. fruticosus.

    Hi Kevy

    What species please? If you can describe the flower and the seed pod shape it will be of use.

    Thanks

    Jacqui
