When we were making our initial plans I put together a list of plants that you can collect seeds from at this time of year in the box gum grassland around Canberra.

Gardening and Nature
We have been doing some plant propagation lately, starting with some peas, now waiting to plant out these gorgeous nasturtiums. I planned a nature walk so we can collect seeds but the day took some other twists and at the end we found ourselves at the zoo where I was very excited to be able to collect some seeds with my little ones. I had completely forgotten our intent when my son pointed out seeds lying all over the floor at the base of a tree there. Then onward and with a new eye for the plants around the zoo we collected some Hakea seed pods. I cannot wait for them to open and then have a go at growing some natives.
