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,
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
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!
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?
