Abstract:
This paper outlines the methods that I have developed in conjunction with my colleagues, to provide continual improvement to outcomes from our seed propagation work. Some 80% of our propagation is from seed, with the majority sourced from our own in house collections. The underlying issue for successful propagation, is the connection between all the aspects of this work; the seed sourcing, the seed quality assessment, the timings and treatments of seed, the trialling of new methods to achieve germination and the detailed recording of the seasonal results to inform future work.
