We only supply strong, quality grown seedlings produced from using the very best nursery practices. In our nursery, we use a special cell growing technique that produces the straightest & strongest possible stems & roots. This is most critical for successful field establishment and importantly the on-going grazing performance of the plant. For extra strength our seedlings are grown over a 6 - 8 month period in the nursery. They are also pruned to create the most optimum root to shoot ratio and to produce many bud & leaf points.

  • Full on property agronomic support is included to ensure successful seedling establishment.
  • Continued on-property inspections for 4 to 5 years - you know you are always getting the best advice.
  • Seedlings graded & packed in waxed boxes - ready for the quickest & easiest field transplanting operation.
  • Free delivery of seedlings - (for commercial quantities only).
  • Transplanting supervision on property (commercial quantities) to ensure transplanting is done properly.
  • Continued on farm grazing management support and advice.
