The Tetraclinis seeds I posted on the last page are starting to germinate now which I think is pretty cool.
Pics are a touch out because phone is not great.

Interestingly I was looking into the species and found out they are the Great grand Daddy to Australias own Callitris and Actinostrobus species. They are descended from Tetraclinis via Africa's Widdringtonia sp. back when all the land masses were connected.

Page 22 is where that bit starts.

Also inspired by Greg's recent thread just sown a bunch of Calytrix seeds.

Not seed but i'm too excited not to post it.

I've never had any luck with cuttings of the red Chojubai for some reason, but i've managed to get 2 cuttings of my white flowering chojubai to take by the look of it. Rubbish photo, but there are new shoots on two of these after they dropped all their leaves after initial taking.

Overall very happy with my first season of of trying some collected seeds.
I'll have to separate the tridents, and put the rest of the oaks in bigger pots.
