Central Districts Plant Me Instead hot off the press

Covering a wide range of temperature zones and landscapes, from Whanganui to Horowhenua, Manawatu to Rangitikei, and beyond, it contains an equally wide range of ornamental garden plants that have ‘jumped the fence’ and are invading wetlands, bush and coastal areas.

These range from common weed species such as tradescantia, to the less common giant lily (Cardiocrinum giganteum), a huge triffid of a plant that is starting to cause concern in natural areas due to its enthusiastic growth habits and shade tolerance.

Other regional Weedbusters Plant Me Instead booklets available are: Southland, Canterbury/Otago, Nelson/Marlborough/West Coast, Waikato, Bay of Plenty and East Cape/Hawke’s Bay. A Northland version is currently being compiled for publication mid-2011.
