There are not many parts of Southern Australia that Wallaby grass cannot be found growing. They occur in ditches, on ridges, on airports, on plains and mountains, near the sea, on poor soils, on perfect soils – they can be found all over southern Australia. What’s more, the various species of wallaby grasses overlap greatly. You will often find three or four species growing alongside each other.

Use in Horticulture – Wallaby grass has been successful in-between rows of vines or trees to control erosion. Using Wallaby grass as an interrow crop also reduces surface temperature. As well as weed control and lower saline water tables. Wallaby grasses low summer activity means that it will not compete strongly with the vines or trees for moisture.

Recommended Sow Guidelines

Our seed mixes all include vermiculite, a commonly used product in the horticultural sector in its exfoliated form. There are a few reasons we mix our seeds with vermiculite:

  • Native grasses come in all shapes and sizes which generally makes them harder to mix and distribute evenly. Vermiculite is a proven method for creating consistent mix that is substantially easier to sow.  It is also ideal for the germination of seeds because its water holding capacity makes it a excellent medium for direct contact with the seeds, creating a humid micro climate around the emerging seedlings preventing scorching or drying out.
  • It is also a great soil improver due to its aeration properties. This increases your soil structure and gives your seedlings a helping hand to have good root growth and its  exchange properties can absorb excess nutrients and release them slowly to the plants via the finest root hair
