How to Grow Everlastings:
Everlastings will grow in most conditions. For optimal growth, ensure your seeds have reasonably well drained soil (not water-logged) and access to sunlight for some part of the day.
For optimal germination control weeds before sowing.
Seed should be sown at a rate of 1 gram per 1 m2.
Apply seeds to the soil surface or lightly cover with soil, for a seed depth no greater than 5mm. Gently press into the soil for good seed-soil contact.
2004 marked the creation of Lucinda’s Everlastings, by Rob and Jen Warburton and their two daughters Lucinda and Zara. It was an idea which led to diversification and offered an exciting new industry, complimenting the existing cropping and sheep enterprises on their farm in Kojonup, Western Australia. Lucinda’s Everlastings was inspired by the sheer beauty and simplicity of the everlasting flower. It is a flower that is iconic to Australia, attracting thousands of tourists to our country each year.
Landcare is a very important element of the farming system adopted by the Warburtons, and they have returned much of the previous grazing land to native vegetation and have fenced off and revegetated all of the waterways on their property. In the middle of the property rests 100 hectares of untouched native bush, full of rare wildflowers and native animals. In 2011 they incorporated the use of everlastings into a wheat crop rotation by lining the outside of the paddocks with the flowers. They are hopeful that this method of incorporating biological diversity within a paddock will encourage a biological method of eliminating harmful insects, diseases and mildews within the crops, eliminating reliance on chemical control.
