SEED COLLECTION TIME

September and it is seed collection time!

Trees-4-Zambia grow all the trees from seed, mostly collected locally. This week we have collected several species of Albizzia, Acacia, Sterquilia, and Croton. We start the seeds off in the new polytunnel, it gets hot and humid and within a few days seeds have germinated and new trees are born.
