Florabank Guideline 4 - Keeping records on native seed
Revegetation is a long-term undertaking and measuring success is an ongoing task. We need to know the origin and treatment of seed which has contributed to successful revegetation and that which has led to failure. As time passes after planting, initial description and documentation about the seed used becomes increasingly important in understanding the reasons for success or failure. Much of what we know about seeds is the result of meticulous record keeping: from identification of the parent plant and seed collection, through storage, to use in the nursery or field.
