Nice post, I was wondering what ever happened to the thirteen young trees? Particularly the ones that were potted?
Hope they are still going strong.


Hi Alan,
We planted them out near our second tawa grove. Rabbits have nibbled some of them, but they're growing away. I've also since learned how to work with the kowhai seeds. There are two theories: one is to soak the seeds for 10 days to soften the hard yellow shells, the other is to abrade them somewhat on sandpaper, concrete (or even chew them). I managed to get two seeds to germinate this winter in the glasshouse without knowing this, but next year I'll go gangbusters.
