We’ve been collecting tree lucerne seedlings as we find them around the farm and assemnling a bit of a nursery. For many reasons, Tree Lucerne is the perfect tree for farms (or small blocks). So far we’re up to about 60 trees in the nursery but I think we’ll need 100′s over the coming years. We’ve got lots of seed too and have had mixed success germinating them – I guess there’s a reason why each tree produces 100′s of 1000′s of seeds each, and yet the world hasn’t yet been taken over by them.
