War on Weeds
The current weeds that are being targeted include Silverleaf Nightshade, Prairie Ground Cherry, Spiny Burrgrass, St. John’s Wort, Blackberry, Bathurst Burr and Noogoora Burr.
In the on-going battle against the weeds, prevention needs to focus on stopping weeds entering and becoming established on properties…..and now is the optimum time for control!
Don’t buy, sell or move plants, flowers or foliage that put NSW at risk
Plants that can harm the environment, economy and communities of NSW are called ‘priority weeds’. The sale and movement of priority weeds is restricted under the NSW Biosecurity Act 2015. Restrictions apply to all parts of the plant, and to cultivars and hybrids.
