A site about plants indigenous to the basalt soils of inland south-east Queensland, and suitable for use in gardens. The area it covers is roughly bounded by the Great Dividing Range, the Condamine River, the New South Wales border and the Bunya Mountains.

Author’s Note: This blogsite is a follow-up to my book, "Toowoomba Plants. Vol 1: Trees and Shrubs", published in September 2005 and now out of print. Look for a revised edition of it in 2016. “Vol 2" is in the pipeline. It will be about other local native plants (i.e. not the trees and shrubs). Meanwhile I want to use this medium to: • make further information about our local plants available to interested people. • report on local news, and discuss local issues about local plants.

I will value your feedback, questions, corrections and further information - and I'm sure that other readers would appreciate hearing more points of view than those which come from me. NOTE: Your comments to not appear on the site until I've had time to approve them for publication, so don't worry if what you wrote seems to have disappeared into limbo. It will get there. I try to respond wherever a response is called for, so do check back later.
