Smoke Primer

1 disk will germinate up to 100 seeds

This paper disk is impregnated with the chemicals found in bushfire smoke, as well as components found to help Strelitzia's and Restios germinate. When you soak seeds in a solution of these chemicals you recreate conditions similar to the start of the rainy season after a fire. This triggers germination.We use it and recommend it in our growing instructions. If you have bought seeds then don't go home without this!  Essential for Protea, Strelitizia and Restio seeds and recommended for most Cape Fynbos seeds.

Just write on them with a black marker pen, and refresh if writing becomes worn or perished.

These tags have a hole for tying them to large bushes, and have a pointy end for sticking in the soil next to seeds or seedlings. Ideal for labeling all your bushes using these so that you can keep records of their production and pruning.

They measure 13mm x 125mm.

Phytosanitary Certificate

The phytosanitary cerificate is required by USDA as of 21st September 2001 for seed imports into the US.

This certifies that the seeds were examined and shown to be free of fungal diseases.  If you do not include this with the shipment, the USDA may stop your seeds from entering the country.

Most customers with small orders take a chance without this certificate, the price is only worth it for a large order where you stand to lose more if the seeds get stopped.  Also, hobby-quantities of seed tend to pass through the system unnoticed.

The cost of this certificate merely covers our expenses in getting it from the South African department of agriculture, and the presence or lack thereof has no bearing on the high quality of the seeds we supply.
