Mexican Poppy – BEWARE OF RIVER SAND!!!

— by Chris Watson

Mexican Poppy. Remove as soon as you see these seedlings as this is a fast-growing and fast-spreading weed.

G’day folks,

This is a note to remind you that you need to be extra vigilant that you don’t bring river sand onto Land for Wildlife properties. Often river sand seems like a convenient option for construction projects – mainly for concreting – but it is a common way to inadvertently transport invasive weeds onto your property.

We’ll keep reminding you about this as it has already been a problem for a few properties this year.

Cheers.
