Montrose Boneseed

Tuesday 2 December 2014

There was an option of continuing on the Boneseed near the park entrance or the Erica higher up in Goat Hills.  The Boneseed was the preferred choice and we initially spent some time ascending the hillside where very little Boneseed was discovered, which was really a nice surprise.  Quite thick and extensive patches were located towards the bottom of the slope and this was where our efforts were concentrated.  Although the day was not overly hot we all had quite wet shirts by the time we stopped for morning tea.  The remainder of the weed was removed by lunch knock off time, although a few small plants are known to exist close the park boundary.
