Being weed wise
The Department of Conservation and regional councils nationwide have been working for several years to provide information about the most serious weeds in each region and what non-weedy plants can be used in their place. This has resulted in regional Plant me instead books that explain about environmentally friendly gardening.
The following links take you to the books or provide more information about what is available in each region.
