Australian flora is extraordinarily diverse, beautiful, hardy and drought resistant. Despite this, the overwhelming majority of flowers, plants and trees used in Australian homes, gardens and landscapes are “exotic” – that is, they are not native to Australia. Austem’s mission is to establish the rightful place of native flora in the Australian home, garden and landscape.
Field Guide is a project designed to encourage Australians to learn about, and care for, our country’s incredible native flora. Field Guide nurtures plants in a nursey until they’re ready for your garden whilst also working with writers and artists on gardening guides and articles about native gardening.
