Rampant early summer weeds

Re-establishing native trees in northern New Zealand pits ecologists against some very strong growing garden escapees. 

Below are the weeds, Mexican daisy with Kikuyu grass, and Convolvulus vine in a dense one metre high tangle. Now is a good time to start treating weeds prior to planting native plants this Autumn.

Mexican Daisy and choking friends.

New Zealand flax, Harekeke, with two metre flower spike opening for nectar delivery to birds.
