Murnong tubers – yam daisies

We are continuing to plant murnong tubers and create a small area for direct seeding of murnong as we trial the best time and place to encourage a sward of yam daisies. Our 2021 propagation produced a large amount of seed collected over a 10 week period so we have some capacity to have a few sessions of planting. Our first exercise was on a hot day on 30 Jan 2022. We planted 4 pots of tubers from our propagation and created one small site for direct seeding, complete with protection from kangaroos that Denis Hurley made from old stakes and chicken wire. We then went home.
