Fully revised and updated this second edition describes even more indigenous plants that are available for purchase and suitable for gardens. All the plants described are indigenous to the basalt clays and alluvial loams found on what is described as Melbourne’s Volcanic or Western Plains. Each species is illustrated by a full colour photograph and gives information on identification and cultivation. The list includes most of the plants appropriate and available for use in gardening, revegetation and landscaping.
There are also chapters on ponds, aboriginal use, butterflies, birds, frog attracting and reptiles.
