About this book

This booklet features 40 of the main invasive alien plants in KZN. It usefully explains why some plants become invasive and how this impacts on the South African environment, economy and society. It then suggests how individuals can "Stop the Spread", setting out planning, management and control strategies. There is clear, concise and accessible information on herbicide selection, concentrations, tips and precautions. Careful distinction is made between registered and non-registered herbicides. The second section offers descriptions, origins and control methods for individual plants, with colour photographs and botanical sketches to aid identification, and a list of new emerging weeds growing in our gardens.Help lines, information on legal aspects and a list of the CARA regulations completes the book.
