    • Hallo Gert, mooi om van jou te hoor. Gert ons het baie boompies wat beskikbaar is. Daar is geen wagperiode nie. Ek moet net weet waar u woon en kyk hoe ons dit by jou kan kry.


    • Dear Miles, my husband and I ordered seeds from you and started planting. Today I have 560 tagasaste seedlings living in our entertainment room! We started experimenting wit different types of soil and systems. We have a germination ratio of 56% on seedlings planted. In spring our trees will be big enough to plant on the farm in Namibia. Thank you, your seeds are of excellent quality. May God bless you and your family and keep you. His Hand is definitely over the produce of yours Miles. Ingrid


      • Hi, Ingrid.
        We farm in Namibia as well and I would like to hear how your trees are coping here?



  1. will mulching with normal lucern help the plant with nitrogen in the initual planting stage and to assist during winter months


    • Hello Mercia, i do apologise for my late response. Please do not add anything to your soil when the tree is anything smaller than 50cm. Although the life of the tree is its prolific tap root it has the most sensitive roots in its initial stages. I have killed some of my trees by adding nitrogen in the hole when planting them out from bags. This is a pioneer tree and will survive in the poorest soils. I plant mine out into my lands withnothing but water and some of them give indications that they are acclimatising by going a bit yellow in the leaf but soon they put out little grey green leaves which become lush green leaves. This is always an indication that their roots are beggining to fix nitrogen. You can add phosphates after a year but i would not recommend anything else.


  2. Hi Myles
    I was wondering how I would be able to go about getting a few of your seedling trees? And how does the transport thing work? I live in Kokstad Kzn! If you can give me that info then I will make a plan to order some! Not sure yet how many I want to order, just wanting to find out how it all works first! Thanks so much!


    • Hello Helen,
      I have just completed trials on planting young trees into a lightweight medium so that they can be economically couriered. We will be couriering the first consignment up to Pretoria this week and if the courier company doesnt hash it up we will be able to send you trees. I will be able to give you feedback on Thursday.
      Thanks for your interest in our trees and i believe we will be able to assist you.


    • @Kim, NO special medium is needed. Simply, these seeds germinate best in coarse river sand. It looks quite sterile, but the seeds hate to remain in wet ground, so water lightly only when needed and they’ll come up from about 14 days.


    • @Golebaone, thanks for your interest in our seeds. Could you please just fill in the contact form on this page with your postal address and amount of seeds and we will get back to you with an invoice.


  3. hallo myles!!
    Ek het n plaas in Warrenton Noord kaap en ek beoog om n min van 60 hektar te plant , ek sal dit waardeer as u vir my inligting kan gee van die saad kan gee soos hoe om dit te plant en uit te plant en om die plant veder te vat tot ek my beeste daarin kan laat wei!

    Dankie Hennie


  4. Hi, can cattle graze off the trees without bloating? How good a bee ,honey tree is it,compare it to normal lucerne? Am i right calculating you can plant 2500 trees per hec for optimal benefit? Thanks Brian


    • @Brian Womersley,
      a) Lucerne trees are excellent grazing for cattle with no record of bloat in livestock.
      b) In southern hemisphere countries these trees flower prolifically from July onwards and are exceptionally attractive to bees and birds.
      c) Your calculations are optimal with spacing 1m apart in the row and rows 4m apart!
      Kind regards, Myles


    • @Seabe Mabua, we post seeds internationally and can post to you in Botswana. Please fill in the contact form on our Prices & Orders page and we will email you an invoice.

      To calculate how many seeds you need per hectare, please visit our Planting Treespage to work out your spacing requirements. Generally we recommend that you need 1500 seeds per hectare.


  5. I believe for our arid terrain in southern Namibia?
    I’ve a small farm of about 514 Hectares and will retire within the next three years and plan to start establishing treelucern for my intended Goat Stud farming. I believe in what I got form your website, that this is a viable option to address grazing. I will certainly, I just bought my first seeds here in Namibia and is excited about the prospects.


  6. hi i live in the northern part of botswana and would like to plant some trees, so i came across your website and was interested in trying out the lucerne trees i have a 4 hectare plot

  8. Hello
    We are located in the UAE and we are considering growing fodder crops on very poor soils under extreme hot arid conditions with recycled waste water through drip irrigation. Your tree-luzerne seems a strong candidate. We want to start with 50-60 ha.
    It is the idea to cut-and-carry the clippings, as we don’t plan to graze cattle on the land, as such we think to keep the trees small by frequent pruning and planted in high density.
    Following questions:
    – best planting distance under mentioned crop management system
    – frequency of pruning / harvesting
    – estimated yields MT/ha fresh and OM under this system.



    • @Marius, Thank you for your comment. These trees, well-managed, will provide year-round food even in the extreme heat and arid conditions but should receive regular light watering to firstly become established, and secondly, to bounce back after pruning or harvesting.
      — Planting distances — we recommend trees are planted in rows 4 meters apart to enable vehicles, tractors etc to be able to drive through for harvesting, but closer rows will also work. Trees should be planted 2.5 meters apart in the rows to receive maximum food from each tree.
      — Pruning should be done a month or so after first planting, and then as often as is required to maintain the tree at about 1-meter height.
      — yield depends on so many factors – how much watering, pruning management, grazing management, soil conditions etc.
