Manganese Point Weedbusters
Weedbuster Type: Group
Contact Person: Ruth Dempster
Headland Farm Park is a residential development on the Manganese Point peninsular in the Whangarei Harbour. Consent was granted for the development of this area on condition that a hundred acres of coastal podocarp forest was placed in covenant. A small group of owners have been giving this area their ongoing attention targeting moth plant, woolly nightshade, tobacco weed (woolly nightshade), pampas grass and Taiwan cherry.
Several years ago we read of the Weedbusters formula herbicide which we make up and use in 750 mL plastic bottles which have a plastic brush top which we use to apply to the cut stumps and ring barked areas. This is extremely effective!! S
Our group is enthusiastic and enjoying the rewards of our efforts.
