Weeding on Onoke Spit

Last Saturday we made the most of a windless day and shot down to pull out a patch of pink senecio or holly-leaved senecio. While this is a very pretty pink daisy like flower it is a foreign garden escapee and we don’t want it to get established on the Spit. It is relatively easy to pull out mainly because it is growing in sand and has a long tap root, but after about an hours work we were ready to load up the trailer and head home for a cuppa!
We will go back and pull some more soon before it sets it’s seed. Thanks for your help Sara Uruski.
