Get in the garden and Grow Your Own Bushfoods. This book is the first-ever comprehensive and practical guide to growing and harvesting more than 140 kinds of Australian bushfoods right in your own backyard. Detailed plant profiles describe ideal growing conditions and characteristics of each species. In addition there are suggestions on the best ways to prepare and eat your bushfoods. Use them as flavourings in jams, muffins or sauces, or make your own bush teas and sweet drinks. A bushfoods directory is also included which lists suppliers of catalogues, seeds and seedlings as well as native plant gardens open for inspection.

Written with an emphasis on using natural growing methods, Grow Your Own Bushfoods enable everyone to enjoy Australian bushfoods while at the same time preserving our endangered plant species.

Delays

Couriers and logistic companies are under the pump and still facing delays. The recent floods along the east coast of Australia not only put stress on the communities and families involved, but logistic companies as well. We cannot guarantee delivery times or estimates. Please keep in mind that the shipping time frames shown at the checkout should be taken with a pinch of salt{bush} + another pinch of patience! Please check the Australia Post website for further delays on delivery time frames - but again, take it with a grain of salt{bush}. 

Why? It's a combination of the highest volume of packages ever being sent, staff having to isolate, covid cases shutting warehouses, lockdowns and non-contact procedures. 
The good news? We're absolutely still processing orders within normal time frames our end and we are always here to help with any issues or questions you may have :)

A great read for a long overdue topic

Best written coverage of this topic I have seen so far, however I would have preferred if the recipe ideas were a separate chapter for easier reference. Under 'wattles' it says there are a few toxic species - it would be great if they listed these; perhaps in a later addition they could add a chapter on 'plants to avoid' or those that require particular preparation to make them non-toxic. Although they could be found online, colour photos of all species specifically referred to would have been nice. I think there may also be a few typos. That said it's a great read, inspiring and encouraging, and long overdue. Awesome!
