Weeds present a significant threat to our natural vegetation. You can help by taking great care when choosing garden plants – especially if you are close to the coast or a natural area. For some ‘weedy’ plants (Gazanias or Fountain Grass for example) there are sterile hybrids available that will not become environmental weeds. Ask at your local nursery.
These are the weeds that present the greatest threat in Cottesloe at present.
