    Marco Invernizzi's new tool - "Ichiban"

    It wil be interesting actually getting to try one of these tools. I brought a tool worth about $180 ($200 US) and saw the difference in both quality and ease of use over the cheaper kitchen utensils and cheap chinese knob cutter I had. Good tools give better finish to an artists vision than...

    Collecting. With or without permission?

    Well, every cultivatar in Australia has copyright on it. It is to protect the breeder, so no one else can claim ownership. This means that each botanic garden has to pay to use the plant, unless its given by the breeder to the park. Now if you read your signs on entry to a botanic park it will...

    Collecting. With or without permission?

    That is a copy right issue dude, and one not winnable over here. I tried getting some permission to collect seed over here in our gardens, but got told its not a good idea as copyright infringement is a nasty issue. Clearing native land with permission is not that straight forward. There are...

    Collecting. With or without permission?

    There is a small debate going on else where about collecting. Do you collect without out permission if you know you will be denied such permission or do you leave the tree where it is? What if the tree is a pest species?
