The Weed Control Handbook: How to Identify and Manage Invasive Plants in New Zealand

Author(s): Weedbusters New Zealand

Weeds & Control

In this handbook, garden weeds that are a distinct nuisance to gardeners are examined first, and then the book moves on to target those weeds that threaten our native ecosystems - and yet are quite familiar to most gardeners. Two and sometimes three photographs identify each weedy plant and clear concise headings urge readers to Know it, Understand it, Control it and Replace it. The book divides weeds into herbs, grasses, vines shrubs and trees with clear technical guidelines regarding the use of herbicides and the disposal of weed waste.
