Watch this weed:  July

CAPE IVY is flowering prolifically in Muriwai at the moment. It can be easily identified by dense clusters of bright yellow flowers as this plant scrambles over everything in your garden or along the road edge. This is the time to nail it as it is highly visible and seeds are not set yet.

Control: Hand pull small plants, or dig out roots (all year round). Dispose of at a refuse transfer station, burn, or bury deeply.  We are in process of establishing a weed disposal strategy for Muriwai.
