When I visit the Geelong Botanic Gardens as I did last week, I like to check up on the grassland beds, where plants are grown just for their seed. It is a bit hard to judge how well this project is going as it looks a bit unloved. Perhaps the project has come to the end of its funded period.
The beds of blue devil look beautiful and the kangaroo grass could still be harvested but a lot of seed would have dropped. The Salt-lake Tussock Grass is just a mass of seed. There are only 9 populations of this plant left so it would be nice to see the seed collected and put to good use.
