Weeds are the bane of the home gardener but also a serious threat to local native flora and fauna. Weeds compete with preferred plants for space, light, nutrients and water and often are designed to win the battle.

In this talk Nicole will cover identifying and control weeds using an integrated approach that minimises negative impacts on the environment. She will also talk about some edible weeds.

This class will cover:

  • What is a weed?
  • Issues with chemical control of weeds
  • An introduction to an integrated approach to weed management
  • Edible Weeds
  • Common weed profiles
