Want to know more about the plants in Bush City?
Bush City is Te Papa’s only living, outdoor exhibition.
Information about some of the plants in Bush City is now available from Te Papa’s Collections Online.
Let me know if you are interested in a plant in Bush City that is not included in the initial set of twelve. This will help me prioritise additional species to write about.
You can find more details on the uses of the featured plants in the cited references. In particular, the book by Andrew Crowe, A Field Guide to the Native Edible Plants of New Zealand, should be available from public libraries (and bookstores).
