From Seeds to Leaves is a comprehensive guide to planting Australian native trees and shrubs on a small or large scale. It highlights the need to combat climate change in Australia by creating a network of vegetation corridors that will allow native plants and animals to migrate, adapt and survive in our rapidly changing world.
The book describes how to: collect your own fruits and nuts; extract, store and germinate the seeds in the right way and in the best season; use smoke to germinate seed normally difficult to grow; and plant out, water, mulch, protect, fertilise and prune your plants for best results.
As well, it includes sections on botanical names and identifying plants by flower and seed, and an ABC of information about Australian species. Procedures are set out in easy table form and there are lists of plants for a variety of special purposes.
