Waiheke residents were offered a chance to win a ‘Naughty Nights’ package at Auckland’s City Life Hotel as part of the Weedbusters Dirty Weekend campaign.

Thirty-four residents entered the competition, which required that they take Andy Spence, ARC’s Waiheke Park Ranger, on a guided tour of their garden so that he could identify weeds for them, and advise on control methods.

The 10 weeds most commonly identified were blue morning glory, tradescantia, moth plant, Japanese honeysuckle, nasturtium, pampas, jasmine, agapanthus, crassula, and black-eyed Suzy - all of which can be major weeds in natural areas.
