A free hands-on workshop designed to show you how to beat environmental weeds in your own garden will kick off on Sunday 26 August at the Pacific Palms markets.
It is often said that one year's seeds means seven years weeds. Gardeners may feel that no sooner have they removed a weed from their garden, a new weed appears to replace it. By choosing the right removal technique and making weed removal part of your gardening routine you are reducing the amount of seed in the ground.
"Weed removal is complex and unfortunately there is no one removal technique that is suitable for all species," says MidCoast Council's Strategic Weeds Biosecurity Officer, Terry Inkson.
Reducing the 'seedbank' will lessen your long term workload and create space for the plants you love to thrive. Come and meet MidCoast Council staff from 9am at the Pacific Palms Markets to get advice on the best technique to beat environmental weeds.
"We will be at Pacific Palms Markets from 9am on Sunday 26 August and will be running two free weed workshops if you'd like a demonstration of weeding techniques that can be applied in backyard gardening."
To get involved, just turn up early at the markets and sign up for one of the sessions, which kick off at 10am and 11.30am. Come prepared with covered shoes so that you can participate.
Come along and meet the friendly team at the Pacific Palms markets on Sunday 26 August - we look forward to seeing you there!
