|Title||Understories - Birds and Berries|
Trish is an Understorey Network member, regenerating 3 acres of cleared land, on her property outside Bridport. Trish seems to have found the right ingredients for successful propagation of the Mountain Pepper Berry, as follows:
- Collect dried currawong regurgitate containing seeds. (These were from Diddleum.)
- Leave the pots outdoors and be prepared to wait 12 months.
- Weed out assortment of other germinating seeds that the currawong has digested.
- Wait for a hard frost, just after winter.
- Hey Presto - pepperberries coming up thick and fast.
Trish is now searching for local homes for her growing family of Mountain Pepperberries. Contact Ruth Mollison if you would like some.
