Hi, I have had no trouble in propagating bauhinia seeds but find that at about the 12" stage they dry up and die. They survived our cool winter in Adelaide ( Australia, I put the seedlings in my mini hot house ) but when brought out into the summer weather (in the shade), they have struggled. Do they require acid soil? I know they do better in the tropics but the seeds I collected are from around Adelaide and they were quite mature trees.I don't know what species they are but I have planted seeds from both a white and a pink . Any tips would be greatly appreciated . I have been trying now for 3 years to no avail Anita

Anita, there is an Australian thread on this site, if you go into Forums, I think you will find it listed there, I know some of the people who go there are very friendly and helpful, give it a try and Good luck. WeeNel.

Are there any plants that discourage snakes? If not, any other ideas? Carol7 35 Aug 23, 2007 12:37 AM
