|In a follow-up on last week’s ‘Weed of the Week’ post on Ground Asparagus Fern (link below), this week we highlight it’s cousin the ‘Climbing’ Asparagus Fern, which is also a category 3 weed which has high impact due to it’s ability to grow up to 12 metres in length and climb all over native canopies, and bushland natives. |
Its seeds are also easily dispersed which further aggravates the capability to control it.
