Hi,
Are you looking for different species of Melaleuca?

I have access to 5 species of Tea Tree (Leptospermum species) and can easily collect seeds from 4 of them which carry their seed all year round. Leptospermum myrsinoides sheds its seed annually and so is much harder to collect seed from.
The four I can collect are:
Leptospermum continentale - Prickly Tea-tree
Leptospermum lanigerum - Woolly Tea-tree
Leptospermum grandifolium - Mountain Tea-tree
Leptospermum petersonii - Lemon-scented Tea-tree

The last two grow in my garden, so collecting seed is very easy.

I do not accept seed from overseas as the Australian customs are rather strict, but if you are interested in any of the above, I will tell how to send the equivalent of a stamped addressed envelope,

Hi Andy, yes I would very much like to find a way to get ahold of Melacluca seeds of different kinds! Thank you.

Hi Kennedyh, that would be so nice! Thank you very much, I'm not sure what the next step is to do.

blue,
if you are also after Melaleucas, I have several of them in my garden and nearby. All carry seed on them all the time, so I can easily collect seed of
Melaleuca armillaris - Bracelet Honey-myrtle
Melaleuca ericifolia - Swamp Paper-bark
Melaleuca hypericifolia- Hillock Bush
Melaleuca lateritia- Robin Red-breast
Melaleuca nesophila - Showy Honey-myrtle
Melaleuca pustulata - Cranbrook Paper-bark
Melaleuca squarrosa - Scented Paper-bark

I will send you a dmail, explaining the system I recommend in lieu of a SASE

Hi Kennedy,

Could you send me some too?

I'm interested in any species you can put your hands on and as many as you want to get rid of. I could make lots of people happy with them over here. Seeds from Australian species are much loved here but very hard to get!

Please tell me how to proceed...

I'm sorry I didnt get back here sooner to post. I am still very interested in the seeds...all the different ones if possible. Also have heard that they need something called "smoke"? From the Melaluca alternafolia that I have grown, they do not seem to handle any stress well at all, like weather changes etc. There was one other tea tree I had bought online years ago and that one did fantastic and probably that one had the smoke...but what is it?

Do you have any seed left? I'd like some of the Melaleucas as well. I love their bark.
Are they hard to grow from seed?

Hi there,

I also have several species of tea tree seeds from Australia that I got from a good friend. Check my trade list to see if you have any wants.

All the best,
