Pattersons Curse has began flowering across the area. Its distinctive purple flowers are now visible on roadsides and in paddocks.
Quick action is encouraged to minimise the seeding of this weed and to maximise its ongoing control. Control by pulling plants, or in larger infestations spraying, is desirable over the next month.
Key areas to be aware of the plant include Burnbank, Glenbrae, Miners Rest and Stoneleigh.
