African Weed Orchid resources
Bush for life has been very kind in allowing me to share the resource below. I will add to it some more information generated by KPCN group members.
Bush for life has added information to say ''the recommendations stand up 14 years later, in terms of time efficient control. Fair to say that most of our staff and volunteers still hand dig and remove bulbs when dealing with Monadenia on Bush For Life sites, and then simply remove flowerheads later in the season when we run out of time to dig up the bulbs in that season. This reduces the amount of seed produced and new seedlings the next year. We still avoid disturbing the seedheads once they have seed in them, as there is too much risk of spreading the dust-like seed into new areas. All bulbs and flowerheads removed from the site need to be disposed of correctly- generally crushing them both is okay.''
