Formosa Lily Hack: Friday 13th March 2015

Are you interested in putting in a couple of hours or a day’s work in making a dent in the alien Formosa lilies growing in the Haenertsburg grasslands?

The Formosa lilies are becoming more numerous each year and it is concerning that they have “infiltrated” one of the last sections of Woodbush Granite Grassland around the village of Haenertsburg. FroHG, in conjunction with the Weeds Committee for Limpopo, have initiated a hack to clear out some of the lilies. We will be cutting stems, removing flower heads to be burnt in a sawmill incinerator and poisoning the remaining stalks.

Bring sturdy shoes, sun hats, sun block, lots of water, snacks and lunch and much enthusiasm.
