THE next Weed Swap, where teams of volunteers reward gardeners with free plants, grown by members of the Australian Native Plants Society, for removing environmental weeds from their gardens, will be held over the weekend of October 29-30.

Privet, cotoneaster, broom, ivy, periwinkle and firethorn are among the target weeds.

Weed Swap happens at greenwaste sites Canberra Sand & Gravel’s yard off Parkwood Road, Macgregor, and at Corkhill’s yard off Mugga Lane, near the tip between 8.30am and 4.30pm on the weekend of October 29-30.
