WHAT TO DO WITH THE ALIEN PLANTS YOU REMOVE FROM YOUR STAND

Thank you to those property owners of Marloth Park who are removing alien plants from their stands.

Here are a few do’s and don’ts:

When removing succulent plants such as Prickly Pear (Opuntia stricta) and Queen of the Night (Cereus jamacaru) remove them by digging out roots and all. Either place these plants in the middle of the road to be destroyed by cars or take them to the main dump and place on the thatch, that will be found there, so that these plants will be burned. If you see these plants in the road, please drive over them! Never throw them back into the veld.

Do not cut them up, leave in the bush or leave hanging in the trees. These plants, and pieces of plants, will root again and the alien plant problem will be spread and made worse by these actions.

An alien plant that should never be placed on the road is Famine Weed (Parthenium hysterophorus), as these plants shed their seeds and the weed is distributed by cars transporting seeds on their tyres. Remove in refuse bags and place on the thatch at the dump, to be burnt. Some people are allergic to this plant and may develop a rash. Use gloves when uprooting this plant.

Another alien plant that should not be placed on the road, but should be removed and immediately placed in a refuse bag is Mother of Thousands (Bryophyllum delagoense) as each little piece of this plant can root and grow. Treat Devil’s Backbone (Kalanchoe diagremontiana) in the same way.

Please procure a copy of our “Alien Plants of Marloth Park” for further information on removing alien plants from your property or contact us for further information or to help you with removal of these plants.

WAT OM TE DOEN MET INDRINGERPLANTE WAT U UITGEHAAL HET

Ons wil heel eerste al diegene wat indringerplante op hulle standplase uitroei, hartlik bedank

Hier is ’n paar moets en moenies.

Vetplante soos die Turksvy (Opuntia stricta) en Koningin van die Nag (Cereus jamacaru) moet wortel en tak uitgehaal word. Plaas hierdie plante òf in die middel van die pad waar verbygaande motors hulle kan opdroog, òf op ’n hoop dekgras by die sentrale stortingsterrein sodat hulle verbrand kan word. Indien u hierdie plante voor u in die pad opmerk, moet u asseblief daaroor ry. Moet hulle nooit terug in die veld gooi nie.

Moenie hulle op u erf in stukke opsny of hulle in die bos agterlaat of in ’n boom ophang nie. Hierdie plante en selfs stukke daarvan sal wortel skiet wat die probleem van indringerplante net sal vererger.

Een indringerplant wat nooit op die pad gestort moet word nie, is die Demoinabossie (Parthenium hysterophorus), aangesien hierdie plante hul sade laat val wat dan aan motorbande kan vassit om so versprei te word. Plaas in vullis sake en neem na die stortingsterrein en plaas op die dakgras om verbrand te word. Moenie hierdie plant met die kaalhand uittrek nie omdat dit ’n uitslag mag veroorsaak wat soms lank mag neem om weg te gaan.

’n Ander plant wat nie op die pad moet beland nie, is die Kandelaarplant (“Mother of Thousands” in Engels) (Bryophyllium delagoense). Hierdie plant moet verwyder en in ’n vullissak geplaas word. Elke klein stukkie kan nie wag om wortel te skiet en te groei nie. Doen dieselfde met Duiwel se Ruggraat (Kalanchoe diagremontiana.)

Om u nog beter voor te berei, beveel ons aan dat u ’n eksemplaar van Alien Plants of Marloth Park in die hande kry en u is ook welkom om met ons in verbinding te tree vir advies of om ons hulp in te roep met die uitroei van indringerplante.
