SEED HARVESTING

CDTS offer a comprehensive service for restoring native grassland using local origin seed. By utilising our Brush seed harvester to collect seed from a suitable donor site and hydroseeding the collected seed onto a receptor site.

The above series of photos demonstrate the process:

  1. Seed collection from a carefully selected donor site.
  2. The collected seed
  3. Preparation of the donor site
  4. Application of the seed by Hydroseeding.

This method of establishing native grassland and Heathland can be used on a wide range of sensitive sites.

To ensure success careful planning is essential from selecting a suitable donor site, carefully timed seed collection and storage, preparation of the donor site and application of the seed.
