Since many Australian native species have evolved over time to deal with a regular fire regime, they have developed a reliance on some of the chemicals in smoke to germinate from seed. Convenient, effective, natural and safe, our Wildflower Seed Starter Granules improve the rate and vigour of native seed germination by providing the smoke in an easy to use form.
Simply sow the seeds as directed on the packet and lightly apply the granules over the top before the first watering. Then lightly water the granules to initiate germination. For seeds that require soaking in water before sowing, simply add the starter granules to the water with the seeds.
Wildflower Seed Starter Granules are recommended for use with most Wildflower seeds, they will not harm other varieties not requiring smoke treatment either. In fact smoke treatment can help produce stronger seedlings, helping to improve their survival rate after germination.
