I have been growing grevilleas by seed for many years now, and have finally developed a process that gives almost 100% success. I do not use any fungicides as they are too dangerous. However, you can use them if you wish, but by sticking to the following steps you should not need to.
Cooler climates may restrict height, speed of growth, flowering size and quantity of bloom to a later time cycle.
Growing Grevillea from Seed
Golden guinea tree is readily propagated from seed and makes an attractive addition to a tropical garden. Although the red flaky bark takes some years to develop, the plants flower and fruit in as little as two years.
Of all the features of Dillenia, it is the bark for which it is best known. The bark is a bright, coppery red and peels off in thin sheets, finer than tissue paper. Artists who specialise in making ‘bark pictures’ by cutting and pasting different bark types to create a scene often seek this bark for its bright vivid colours.
Propagation for the Casual Grower
Most species of Grevillea have an inbuilt dormancy factor which prevents them from germinating when night minimum temperatures rise above 15 o C.
The capillary bed took the form of a foam box (courtesy of my local fruit and veg merchant) cut down around the sides to 110 mm (measured from the outside) to facilitate easy removal and replacement of the PET bottles. Polythene sheet was used as a liner and a bed of sand or sand and coco-peat to a depth of 30 mm put on top of it.
