Spring in the Catchment

Spring has finally arrived in the catchment! You will begin to notice a lot of our native plants flowering in the next few weeks, along with our dreaded weeds!

  • Now is a great time to get plants indentified on your property. Here are some other things you can do….
  • Wander around your property and try to identify your vegetation/weeds. Many plants are flowering at the moment and are easier to identify. If you need assistance, drop into the Natural Resource Centre at Norton Summit and use the Herbarium and reference books.
  • Any seedlings/plants you have for revegetation should be in the ground now. Make sure you keep the surrounding areas weeded to give them their best chance of survival.
  • Keep your eye on any known Monadenia (African Weed Orchid) sites on your property from now until December, and dig out any plants which pop up. Plants are characterised by a blue-green colour with maroon tinges to the leaves
    (contact your local NRM AMLR
    or Council for more information).(Pictured: Monadenia)
