Outlines methods used to propagate native species from seed for small or large scale revegetation, tree planting or direct seeding projects.

With increasing community recognition of the many problems associated with past clearing of native vegetation, interest in the propagation of indigenous plants has dramatically increased over the past few years. 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.

Contents:
1. Why grow local plants?
2. Seed development, viability and dormancy.
