    Well I've decided i really need to get some fodder trees going so am thinking of having another go with the tree lucerne seeds. So I am asking anyone in Australia who has had success sprouting the little B's where they got their seeds, did they come pre treated and what sort of treatment they have used to get the little darlings to show their heads? Cheers

    Ive killed heaps But hot water untill seed swells and then potting mix !
    Also try Black locust! Oaks are easy!
    short term dont forget Vetch/sub clover as cover crop in autumn!
