Default Wollemi Pine

I have a Wollemi Pine and need to prune it
now & then.

Can someone advise how to propagate from the
cuttings?

Regards

Thought you needed a license to propagate them?
Are you having to prune it because its inside? otherwise why bother?

I didn't think any of the ones now being sold here or in Aus would be of a
size to prune yet, including the one pinched from Kew!


This very mysterious. I really don't think Peter should prune it at
all, and I don't understand the "need to prune it now and again". But
since he acquired it lawfully and there are so few in private hands, he
should go straight to the Royal Botanic Gardens for advice rather than
ask us to speculate -- they took a four-figure sum from him, after all.
I don't think licensing issues arise if there's no intention to sell
the youngsters, unless there's some special measure in force in Aus for
extreme cases like this.


I didn't see a price mentioned? In any case the ISP is supposedly in
Victoria, Australia but he's posting through uni.berlin.de I suspect it's
a wind up from someone who feels urg's a bit too quiet atm. ;-)

It is about 1/2 meter tall and the top is
growing fast. I don't have a garden and it
lives in a pot on the patio. I just want to
train it into an attractive shape because it
has branches lower down that grow out
horizontally.

I find they're growing at half a metre a year in Oz and being sold
almost as grow-anywhere-anyhow trees. There's a bit of a craze on,
which I don't think will last even until they start being classed as
nuisance trees in small gardens -- which I think will happen. And we
just can't be certain of a tree's behaviour when we've only known about
it for twelve years.

Peter should prune it at
all, and I don't understand the "need to

They're easily available here from nurseries
at $50/50cmplant, and $90/100cm plant.


That's amazing. I've just had a look at Forest NSW. I didn't realise
they'd been able to bulk up the stock so quickly, and was stuck in the
time when the few specimens available for sale were priced in the
luxury bracket. Heynes in SA say it'll stand pretty hard pruning, but
wait till winter: see their factsheet at:
http://www.heyne.com.au/gardencentre...ing+fossil.htm

I did a bit of a Google.au on "wollemi pine cuttings", but gave up
after a few pages. It seems they do well, though you get different
forms from tip and side cuttings. With a strong rooting hormone they
apparently strike in about six months in coarse sand, after which you
transfer to a conifer mix and pot on as necessary.

Like you, I'd thought they were still immensely expensive rarities though I
do hope all those people buying Wollemi pines are quite sure that's what
they've got! Apologies to Peter for my doubting Thomas act!
I must admit that I find them very dull trees but it's undoubtedly a good
thing if the world stocks of them can be increased to protect the species.

Very interesting indeed, thanks Jennifer. I may have to revise my opinion
as to its attractiveness but at 97 for a 3l pot, I think we'll wait for the
price to drop a bit!
