Tree Nursery for Restoring Hedges

Our pittosporum tenuifolium hedge has gaps from trees dying over the years. I tried to gather, plant and sprout some pittos from seed but nothing came up. So, Tim and I have been gathering up wild pitto seedlings from our property and the neighbour’s property and putting them in pots while they grow up a bit. Tim has planted some out where we want them and they have grown well this summer.
