Thanks Wen, only teh second record of this weed in Gossan Hill. Could you please either pull the plants out by hand or with a mattock, bag and put into your red rubbish bin. You are able to ask Steve.Taylor@act.gov.au for a nursery voucher for the reporting of this weed.

Cheers Michael Mulvaney

Thanks Michael. Happy to pull and bag this particular weed from Gossan Hill. I have seen this plant species on another part of Gossan Hill (as I picked and dried flowers from the plant many years ago). I will check out the site tomorrow. I would've walked past the site this evening, but ran out of daylight. Kind regards, Wen

Thanks Wen I pulled 18 plants out from an area in the south-west of the reserve a few years ago and make sure you ask Steve for your voucher

Checked area where I picked Spanish lavender from, but looks like you did a comprehensive job of removing all of the plants! However, I found 2 more Spanish lavender plants on my walk home along the tarmac road at the back of Crisp Circuit (see Sighting 4348019). Both of these plants have been dug up, bagged and binned :)

Thanks - just had a look for outliers and none detected. Will map a Spanish lavender polygon on the Collector app - ArcGIS on-line treated weeds map - in this way the Rangers will know to check for follow-up.
