      This book is the fourth in a series of field guides on Australian Flora, focussing primarily on a small selection of Western Australian plants from $ Add to cart. This book was published jointly by the Wildflower Society of Western Australia, Western Australian Herbarium, CALM (now DBCA) and the Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority. The pages include 16 pages of colour and 6 colour plates with an introduction covering botanical history, floristics, classification and data management.

        Watch your plants grow! You don’t need to do much from here. The plants will do as nature does. To get your plants to grow faster, make sure to put them in a spot with plenty of light. More light = faster grow time. This is something a lot of growers neglect. But to grow weed outdoors in Australia the right way, you need lots of light.   Part plant-identification guide, part food- and medicine-making manual, this book is a treasury of plants that grow throughout the north (and much of the temperate world). Excellent reading for beginners, experienced foragers, and anyone who loves herbs. Speaks to the heart and soul of wild food and herbal medicine.

      The "new and improved" hybrid of Outback Valentine! A one of a kind from Australian Outback Plants. This intense maroon/purple flowering, dense dark green foliage emu bush grows 3' to 6' tall and wide when mature in a couple of years. While Australia’s indigenous peoples have long enjoyed the flavours and nutritional benefits of native plants, many Australians have yet to sample the smorgasbord on offer. In some cases, the flavours imparted by native plants aren’t far removed from introduced ingredients, and can therefore be used in many of the same dishes.

Growing Australian plants by Ivan Holliday Download PDF EPUB FB2

Based on nearly 50 years of experience at Kings Park and Botanic Garden in Perth, the book describes the necessary growing conditions for mainly Western Australian native plants and covers some of the more technical aspects such as plant propagation and grafting, the use and benefits of tissue culture, methods of seed collection and storage, and the role of smoke in improving.

This has led to a greater diversity of native plant species being grown, including native grasses, aquatics, lilies and herbaceous species. This book outlines methods used to propagate native species from seed for small or large scale revegetation, tree planting or direct seeding projects.

The Australian plants selected for this book are likely to grow well in the Canberra region and in other similar cool climate areas. Significantly, more than one third of the Australian plants included in the book are native to the Canberra region, while others come from elsewhere in Australia.5/5.

If the plants are edible e.g. lettuce, beetroot, you could eat them. Some might even be able to be transplanted – but remember they will suffer a little from the disturbance.
