Buckletons Bay Weed Control June 2015

In mid-June a small group of Buckletons volunteers spent a couple of mornings reclaiming last years plantings from the kikuyu and other weeds starting to take over. The plantings in the top corner have survived well and, thankfully, the Japanese honeysuckle in that area is now well-controlled.

Council dealt the bamboo in the bottom area of the reserve a second blow in May. We are very grateful for that since it makes our volunteer weeding programme more straightforward. Last year's plantings in this area are under greater threat from invasive weeds, but there is still a reasonably higher survival rate so far.

A special thanks to John and Lynne Potter for the morning tea, and to Bruce Burton for the generous offers of coffee and scones.
