Spring time is weeding time for Cottesloe Coastcare volunteers and we have been hard at work.
Despite the very poor rain this past winter, the rain received was distributed over a long period and perhaps this is the reason that every weed species seems to be doing extra well this year!
A weeding session with the Grocery team from Coca-cola Amatil on October 2nd resulted in this huge haul of weeds. We must remove weeds with seeds from the site. You can see bags of dune onion weed seed heads. Here we have not removed the whole plant so not to cause erosion on a bare patch of sand, but by removing the seed heads we hope to eventually get rid of this weed once the native plants thrive.
