Weed control

 

GENERAL WEED INFORMATION

The Mornington Peninsula Shire has produced the Mornington Peninsula Weed Guide with general advice regarding common local weed species.

 

KARAMU

Karamu is an invasive weed from New Zealand which is incredibly invasive in the Main Ridge, Red Hill ¬†and Flinders areas. It can be easily confused with Muttonwood, which is a relatively rare, indigenous plant.¬†Download our Karamu Lookalikes Brochure for more information and be sure you’re certain before you start removing Karamu plants. Main Creek Catchment Landcare has also produced an informative video with tips on telling the difference between Karamu and Indigenous species and advice on controlling small and large infestations.
