A new book - Plants of Melbourne's Western Plains

The grasslands of Victoria’s Western Plains and similar plant communities in the Northern Plains contain the highest proportion of threatened plant species in the state. Grasslands now cover less than 1% of their former extent on the Keilor-Werribee Plains and less than 1% in Victoria.

Some of you may have the original edition but this new book will be a valuable guide for people wishing to grow western plains plants in domestic gardens, parks and revegetation projects as well as everyone who wants to learn more about the rich diversity of flora to be found in remaining plains landscapes in Melbourne’s west and throughout Victoria. It will be useful resource for other areas of the Volcanic Plain. Order it from
