African Weed Orchid

Local Landcare member, Eleanor Wright, has been tackling the African Weed Orchid which is quickly moving into Muckleford. Eleanor reports that each plant can release 10,000 dust-like spores each season if not removed. She has dealt with her infestations by digging them out by hand.
