Searching for jewels!

I often think seed collecting is a bit like searching for jewels! Once you get your eye in, there they are – beautiful, sparkling, translucent orbs of colour. The photo below has some of the seeds I collected on Saturday 2 February 2019. Can you identify any of the species – and guess the odd one out? Its not native and its actually poisonous so you would be well advised to learn about it and certainly not eat it. The others are natives, mainly in the coffee family.

Come along to the Nursery on a Friday morning in the next few weeks to learn more about seed collecting, by doing it! And come and see our new track and take part in other nursery activities, and dont forget to bring some kai!
