Beautiful Flowered Sickle Pod - Fresh Seeds

Sickle Pod - Dichrostachys cinerea

You are bidding for a packet of 5 seeds.

This is a beautiful relative of the Acacia and is native to Southern Africa. It has mimosa like foliage, reminiscent of the Jacaranda. It carries long thorns up to 4 inches in length. The flowers are an unusual 'bottle brush' shape and sterile pink flowers at the base, whilst the fertile yellow flowers are at the top of the stem. The flowers are pendulous and scented. These are followed by sickle shaped seed pods, from where the common name derives. Another of it's common names is the Kalahari Christmas Tree, due to the decorative flowers that are present around Christmas time.

Hardy to Zone 10 and reportedly tolerant of very mild frost, so only suitable for outdoor culture in the warmer parts of the UK. Elsewhere use as pot specimen to go out in the summer or to be used in the conservatory/ greenhouse. The plant is drought resistant so is suitable for arid areas or for use as a pot pot plant (for those who forget to water their plants). Flowering plants can be achieved in 5 years from seed, perhaps a year earlier with lots of TLC!

Growing Instructions

I always sell seeds that I have experience of growing so the instructions provided represent 1st hand experience. These instructions may change over the course of time (as I find out more about the plants and seeds) but the details that you will be provided with, at purchase, represent the latest version. If you have any questions concerning the culture requirements of this or any other item I am selling please contact me:

I will be happy to provide extra details you require.

Bidding on more than 1 item?

I will always combine shipping wherever this is possible and all auctions finishing within a SEVEN day period will qualify.  If I have not sent an invoice, please e-mail me for a combined invoice when you have finished bidding/buying, doing this will almost certainly save you money. 

Due to the varying weights of the seeds it is not possible to apply a standard discount without overcharging for the majority of cases.  Additionally I cannot apply a postal discount unless PayPal payments are combined.

General Disclaimer

Germinating seeds and growing plants are subject to many other factors including the conditions under which they are raised (including but not limited to: Light, moisture, soil, humidity) and the skill of the individual grower.  As the vendor, such  factors are completely outside of my control and all seeds and plants are supplied on this basis.

Postage & Handling

International customers - streamlined postage for all seed orders

I will now only be charging two rates for postage for all orders of seeds REGARDLESS of the number of packs bought.

  1. European Rate
  2. Rest of World Rate

Once these rates roll out across my listings, I will once more 'trust' the automated check out process, to make things simpler

These new rates reflects the fact that I use PayPal postage for all my orders and these are the rates I need to charge to use this service

This should allow me to dispatch your orders more rapidly than before as I will not need to visit the Post Office for the majority of the orders, normally inside 24 hours - although at busy times this may take a little longer
