Wellington Botanic Garden, 101 Glenmore St, Kelburn, Wellington

Ticket Information:

  • Free Admission

Weeds are so common in our gardens that we sometimes don't even know they're weeds... I'm talking about you Mister Agapanthus!

Even Wellington Botanic Garden has fallen into the trap of having known weeds amongst our collections. But not any more!

Come along and meet Wellington Gardens staff, learn about weeds, and help us remove several different species from one of our collections. You'll learn tips on weed ID, tricks on removal, and get advice on what to plant instead.

Meeting point: We will meet at the white gates on upper Glenmore Street

What to bring: Closed toe shoes, $2 for a sausage from the sausage sizzle, and a willingness to help!

Includes an information stall, living specimens from the 'Plant Me Instead' book and heaps of books to give away, green waste disposal information, composting give aways and sausage sizzle.

This event is part of Conservation Week 2017 - conservationweek.org.nz
