Bush Botanical Seeds - Saltbush
A sprinkle of Saltbush seeds for your garden or pots. This little envelope contains Indigenous grown Saltbush seeds.
Saltbush is not just delicious, its also nutritious too and a valuable source of protein. A fun little gift for a friend or for yourself ;).
Simply soak the seeds overnight and plant them in trays or pots filled with seed-raising mix. Water regularly to keep the soil moist and be patient, as germination can take up to 4–6 weeks. Alternatively, take semi-hardwood cuttings 8–10cm long and insert the base into a propagating mix, i.e., a mix of potting mix and sand. Position in a warm spot and water regularly to keep soil moist. Once established, old man saltbush is drought tolerant. However, it will benefit from an occasional deep watering during hot, dry spells.Feed in spring with a slow-release native fertiliser if needed.
A huge number of seeds come from the flowering after spring and autumn and they are like little salty popcorn kernels, but were also ground and mixed with water to make dough cooked in coals.
