Release of the Florabank Guidelines

The best practice guidelines for native seed collection and use in Australia.

The Florabank Guidelines are essential reading for anyone that works with native seed in any capacity from research to restoration, planting to policy and everything in between. This includes bush regeneration, tree planting, mine rehabilitation and landcare. Originally published in 1999/2000, the guidelines have been revised to include a further 20 years of knowledge based on practical experience, expertise and research.

The updated Guidelines are available to download for free from the Florabank website:

The Guidelines contain 15 modules which follow the native seed supply chain from collection, through processing to propagation and planting. To better support the whole of the seed supply chain, this update includes additional information on working with Indigenous Australians, approvals, record keeping, and tips for seed purchasers.
