Weedy vine tackled

Araujia sericifera – Moth or milky vine – used to be a garden favourite but like so many weeds, it is a huge pest. It has been coming into the Park and we discovered the source is next door – the former Herald and Weekly Times printing works which have been empty for some time.

Araujia sericifera comes from South America, it climbs up to 2 meters, it’s tough, produces masses of seeds and has toxic sticky milky sap.

That’s why we pulled it out this week. Thank you George, Jackie and David!
