NextGen Tour - Nuts About Natives

The first Nextgen event for 2018 just took place at the amazing ‘Nuts About Natives’ nursery in Karnup, and what an interesting tour it was! Starting off outside the tissue culture lab, Proprietors Ben Croxford and Anouska Cousin spoke about the finer details of tissue culture and the many seed recalcitrant species they’re able to successfully grow using this technique. Ben then showed us around the different growing areas, speaking about their deflasking and hardening processes and many other facets of their small yet very successful operation.

The tour concluded with a delicious bbq where everyone had the opportunity to chat and network with some new and familiar people within the industry.

We'd like to take this opportunity to thank Ben and Anouska for showing us all around their very interesting nursery which I’m sure everyone can agree, was worth the visit. Also a special thanks to our Nextgen event sponsor Baileys Fertiliser.

Stay tuned for our more great Nextgen events in the coming months.
