Plant me instead

The Plant Me Instead booklet profiles the environmental weeds of greatest concern to those in your region who work and volunteer in local parks and reserves, national parks, bush remnants, wetlands and coastal areas.

Suggestions are given for locally-sold non-weedy species, both native and non-native, that can be used to replace these weeds in your garden.

We hope that the Plant Me Instead booklet gives you some ideas on what you can do in your own backyard to help protect New Zealand’s precious environment.
