Seed savers wanted to sell me a book. Not sure how to get seeds out of them.

Tree onions have the onion growing on the top of the plant in bunches. Good for pickling etc.

Spent ages going through some websites, found one that I could buy potato onions from and I went through their list ordering a heap of stuff, only to notice right at the very end....... Not for W.A....... :swing:

:anger: Yeah I did the same, and when I e-mailed the people and asked why the freight prices almost doubled it was because of quarantine and spraying....was going to cost $72 for one plant :scared2:

Duff I tried growing the banana passionfruit from seed but no luck....currently the grommit is trying to get mango seeds to sprout but nothing is happening either :poke:

Sand paper the seeds a little first. Not sure how the mangos go from seeds.

For Mangoes:
Open the husk, take out the seed, stick in face down in some sand or sandy potting mix (not very deep), stand back and watch it/them grow. A lot of the seeds will be polyembryonic so you will normally get a few seedlings from each seed. they aren't too hard to cultivate, but do yourself a favour when they are big enough, find someone with a good producing tree and graft them :)
Cheers

oh, you will probably need secatuers to cut the husk open, watch your fingers. it doesn't matter if the seed gets a bit chopped off, they are tough :)

:wink: We have already opened two up (without the loss of any didgets :thumb: ) but the site we looked at suggested they be half suspended in water in a dark warm place.......(I'll leave the jokes alone) then if nothing happened fully sumberse the seed in water for two weeks and if still nothing plant in a pot.
I think I'll just try the pot method with the next one and see how it goes
