How to Grow

Native bushfood plants are a fantastic suburban addition that produce kilos of fresh, nutritious flavours that can be used fresh, in preserves, or in a roast salad. They are indigenous to this land so if you're going to grow plants for food, why not make them Australian native food plants?

Plants arrived in perfect condition. Very healthy. I’ll wait to plant them out in spring (I don’t think they would tolerate an Otways winter while so young).
