    Hello People,

    We were disappointed this morning to find that the local council had mowed the kikuyu around the base of the Jubaea spectibilis syn. J. chilensis (chilean wine palm) and restricted this year's harvest to about 120 seeds. All of these have been allocated to previous requests. So we will have to withdraw yesterday's offer.

    Thanks,

    Darren Doherty

    HI Darren
    I have tried sending you an email about 4 times over the last few weeks to thank you for the Jubaea seed. Something wrong somewhere. Anyway, the seed have arrived, had a five day soak in 35c water plus 5% household bleach, and are currently in bags of damp coco peat hanging above the fire. They should start to sprout in a few months time.

    I went to Hobart Botanic Gardens on Sunday to collect some. There were plenty on the ground but all appart from 4 had been attacked by rodents.

    Once agin thankyou very much for your efforts. Sorry my original emails did not get to you.
