70% of the invasive environmental weeds in south east Queensland are, in escaped garden plants.

The aim of weedbuster's week is to raise awareness and educate home gardeners on the dangers and problems caused by environmental weeds. It is anticipated that with a greater level of understanding of the threats of many of the plants in the home garden, we can preserve our native bush.

In conjunction with this year's theme, 'Grown Me Instead', Sunshine Coast Council is co-ordinating a series of weed-exchange events at various locations. \

Council will be giving away native plants in exchange for a bag of weeds from the 'most wanted' list, as well as a copy of 'Our Locals are Beauties' to help identification and increase awareness for weeds and native Sunshine Coast plants. (maximum three plants per person).

So what's on the MOST WANTED list?
Asparagus Fern, Mock Orange, Mickey Mouse Plant, Singapore Daisy, and Fishbone Fern.

For identification, head to the events page at www.sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au
to check out the fact sheet available.
