Project outline:

The purpose of this book is to provide an overview of plant propagation techniques and how to use them to grow over 50 Whitsunday native plants. This book was developed because of an increasing interest in local native plants and the methods used to grow them. Plant propagation trials were conducted in addition to literature review to determine methods of propagation.

Project achievements and outcomes:
