I am try to revegetate my property with this tree and believe the seeds must pass through a bird before germination will occur. Does any body have any advise or tips as i am new to this area?

Hi Vonlang

I am revegetating my property as well. I have had no luck with Persoonia, a pity as it is a lovely plant. Maybe you could try something else that is easier to germinate, or maybe you already have. Give cuttings a go.


RE: Snotty Gobble or Persoonia

The seeds do need to go though the gut of a bird - as with mistletoe. How does one get a bird to "go" where you want it to!! We have them fairly thick in the bush around here but they do succumb to die-back and are an indicator plant, I believe, of the problem.
