Planting

How do we plant?

Planting techniques are chosen to meet the unique environmental conditions found at each site. There are two typically used:

Direct seeding

This involves sowing native seed directly into cultivated soil using purpose-built equipment that can sow over 40 hectares in one day. Direct seeding is sometimes complemented by the planting of nursery seedlings. For direct seeding to be successful it requires predictable and sufficient rainfall patterns.

Nursery seedlings

Native plants are grown in a nursery, which can then be planted out into cultivated soil. Nursery seedlings are useful when seed supply is limited and also for certain rainfall and soil conditions.
