With invaluable information based on 30 years of research in northern New South Wales, users will find even difficult rainforest species delightfully easy to grow.

Reviews for Australian Rainforest Seeds: A Guide to Collecting, Processing and Propagation

For anyone with even a slight interest in rainforest plants and a wish to grow their own, this book is a 'must have'. It is highly practical and informative, easy to read, and the photographs add immeasurably to its usefulness in assisting with recognition of the rainforest fruits. Highly recommended. -- Tony Cavanagh * Growing Australian No. 252, June 2020 *
