Description

A booklet to help coastal gardeners identify plants which can jump the front fence and become an environmental threat has been produced by local conservation groups.

“Grow Me Instead” describes and illustrates many of the coastal weeds found around Eyre Peninsula, with suggestions for native plants that can be grown instead in the various categories, such as trees and shrubs, grasses and climbers.

The 96 page booklet is spiral bound and contains over 100 coloured photos.

Co-author Kerryn McEwan said the booklet was produced to help curb the number of “garden escapees” spreading into native vegetation, particularly around coastal towns.
