First printed in 2010, we have recently revised our Weed Guide for Southern Tasmania, updated to include newly declared weeds such as Holly.
Click here to download the digital version of our weeds guide, and if you’d like a print copy, they are now available from NRM South or selected local councils and native plant nurseries.
While the guide is not a complete list of all weeds, it identifies priority species in our rural and urban environments with suggestions on how to tackle them. For further information on Tasmania’s weeds, control methods and management strategies, refer to the DPIPWE website
Some of these weed species may look a little familiar. Popular plants such as agapanthus, foxglove or New Zealand flax are common garden additions, but they have the potential to spread further than the boundaries of our backyard and cause problems in our rural and natural landscapes. You can also take a look at our native gardens guide for ideas about what might make a better replacement.
