Areas of land known as teatree, bottlebrush, or kangaroo grass flats are found throughout the higher rainfall districts. To grow clover successfully on the dark grey or black peaty sands found on these flats, lime should be applied before the seed is sown. Ground limestone topdressed at one ton per acre and well disced into the top four to six inches, will give excellent results.
