Leader in ornamental trees and shrubs for Mediterranean gardens

Australian Medicinal Plants
Australian Medicinal Plants is an invaluable resource for all those interested in herbal medicine, Aboriginal culture and Australian flora. This book covers both the Aboriginal use of native plants and how the first settlers learned from the Aborigines their medicinal values. There is information on the plants themselves, how they were used, what their known pharmacological constituents are, where to find them and how to prepare remedies. Hundreds of species are covered, helpfully arranged in chapters depending on their use: for fevers, painkillers, antiseptics and digestive disorders for instance.
