Even in dry, arid areas prone to drought & over grazing, direct seeding with Seedballs ensures long healthy tap roots that go deep into the ground-  

(compared to using plastic seedling bags which constrict the roots to within the bag).  

 

A deep, healthy root system allows a stronger plant which is more drought resistent and which can

withstand extremes of temperature and grazing.

Get eaten and then grow a bit and then get eaten and then grow a bit more...

Ahhhh the life of a little acacia tortilis tree in the savannah.

 

But luckily this is where growing directly from seed helps baby trees start off with stronger roots that can store the energy it needs to keep on growing despite droughts and browsing.

 

Here is one growing from a seedball in Kajiado shown above that we have been keeping tabs on.

The plastic bag constricts and stresses the growth

of the root system, impacting future growth & health

of the plant.

Direct seeding with a seedball allows a long, healthy tap root, ensuring a stronger, healthier plant with deeper roots that

can withstand extremes of

drought & grazing
