People are passionate about gardening with ornamental plants and they want to feel proud of their gardens and landscapes. More than 2 billion ornamental plants are sold each year and only a very small number can ‘jump the garden fence’ and become invasive weeds. The Plant Sure Scheme will provide a collaborative and proactive approach to managing this problem.
During Phase 2 of the Plant Sure Scheme we will conduct a ‘proof of concept’ 18-month, small scale trial in NSW, to assess if the Scheme will be viable, credible and self-sustaining into the future. We will build on the research completed during Phase 1, including refining the Macquarie University Ornamental Plant Decision Support Tool and completing the development of all 14 Scheme components recommended by the University of Wollongong.
The Scheme trial has been extended due to the COVID-19 lockdownDownload Roadmap
Tailored resources will be developed by March 2021
