Australian Native Plants provides a comprehensive guide to the horticulture of our native plants. 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 germination. Western Australia is home to about five per cent of the world’s vascular plants and contains Australia’s only terrestrial ‘biodiversity hotspot’. Written by experts with an in-depth knowledge of how to grow these plants outside their natural habitat, Australian Native Plants provides the more technically minded professional or enthusiast with information based on decades of research, experimentation and application. It aims to encourage the growing of Australian plants so that they can be used more widely and contribute to interesting, attractive and diverse private gardens and public landscapes in a changing environment.

Australian Native Plants: Cultivation and Uses in the Health and Food Industries provides a comprehensive overview of native food crops commercially grown in Australia that possess nutritional and health properties largely unknown on a global basis. These native foods have been consumed traditionally, have a unique flavor diversity, offer significant health promoting effects, and contain useful functional properties. Australian native plant foods have also been identified for their promising antioxidant and antimicrobial properties that have considerable commercial potential. This book is divided into three parts: The first part reviews the cultivation and production of many Australian native plants (ANP), including Anise Myrtle, Bush Tomato, Desert Raisin, Davidson’s Plum, Desert Limes, Australian Finger Lime, Kakadu Plum, Lemon Aspen, Lemon Myrtle, Muntries, Native Pepper, Quandong, Riberry, and Wattle Seed. It then examines the food and health applications of ANP and discusses alternative medicines based on aboriginal traditional knowledge and culture, nutritional characteristics, and bioactive compounds in ANP. In addition, it reviews the anti-obesity and anti-inflammatory properties of ANP and discusses food preservation, antimicrobial activity of ANP, and unique flavors from Australian native plants. The third section covers the commercial applications of ANP. It focuses on native Australian plant extracts and cosmetic applications, processing of native plant foods and ingredients, quality changes during packaging, and storage of Australian native herbs. The final few chapters look into the importance of value chains that connect producers and consumers of native plant foods, new market opportunities for Australian indigenous food plants, and the safety of using native foods as ingredients in the health and food sectors.

West Australian Native Plants in Cultivation differs from other books written about the subject, because this text is based on actual experience in Western Australia and its flora. The book describes the cultivation of some of the plants that grow naturally in the region. The text starts with a background of the State and its flora, with some description of these plants as being successfully grown in other parts of the country and the world. The book lists the common and botanical names of the plants for easy identification, as well as the existence of the ""Society for Growing Australian Plants,"" which keeps records of plant growth and conditions. The text then offers tips in growing these native plants. The book shows where to collect, process, store, and treat hard-coated seeds. The text then explains propagating using the seed, transplanting the seedlings, and propagating the plant by other means such as cuttings and rootings. The book does not miss on how to take care of the plant through proper watering, mulching, pruning, fertilizing, and controlling pests. The text gives other useful information such as the localities where a type of plant can be found, as well as the kinds of plants that can be grown for special purposes. Agriculturists, plant lovers, botanists, and home-makers will find this guide useful and interesting.

Australia's unique native flora includes numerous outstanding garden plants - from specimen trees to groundcovers and annuals. THE ILLUSTRATED ENCYCLOPEDIA OF AUSTRALIAN NATIVE PLANTS brings together more than 1600 species, hybrids and cultivars in a highly illustrated, user-friendly volume. Over 600 colour photographs combine with detailed descriptions, cultivation notes and other information to make a comprehensive reference that will be welcomed by gardeners. The selection of more than 1600 plants from the readily available to the rare, including many hardy, versatile and attractive trees, shrubs, herbaceous plants, ferns, vines and groundcovers. Selection has been made on the basis of the species and/or its cultivars and hybrids being widely cultivated or very well known, with the addition of some varieties that have a point of novelty or that are popular with native plant enthusiasts. A climatic zone map helps gardeners to develop an understanding of where their gardens fit in the widely varying Australian climatic zones and which plants are likely to grow best for them. In addition to a short general introduction, the book includes a number of essays that offer information and ideas on topics of particular interest. These include: * Planting to encourage and/or preserve native wildlife: How to manage a native plant garden so that it best fits the needs of the human inhabitants and the wildlife. * Coping with eucalypts: Although they are such a distinctive feature of the Australian flora, gums are not always the easiest plants to have in gardens. This essay looks at coping with their litter, ground-robbing tendencies and the possibility of soil salinity. * Gardening with drought: Planting to minimise water use and strategies to help your garden survive long dry periods. * Propagating native plants: The basic propagation techniques and also the special methods that apply to Australian bushland plants. * Natives for shade: While gardening in Australia often seems to be mainly about coping with heat, sun and drought, the native flora also includes plenty of ferns, cycads and lush foliage plants for shady areas.
