There are many information sources to help you identify plants that may be weeds, including reference books and specialists.
The Agriculture Victoria website www.agriculture.vic.gov.au has many resources on pest plant management. Those most relevant include:
Another useful National resource for weed information and management is the (Department of Environment) Weeds in Australia website www.weeds.gov.au, which includes:
- Weed Identification Tool - to Identify your weed by flower colour, plant habit and location
- About Weeds - what is a weed and why, weeds database
- How you can help - guidance for Gardeners, Farmers, Hobby Farmers and Landscaping Industry
- Weed Management - information on prevention, detection and management
The Weeds Australia website www.weeds.org.au also has some information on weed identification and management, but may be outdated.
Once you have identified the plant as a weed, you will find useful resources to help manage that weed on our Solutions page Get Help to Manage Weeds.
