User's notes

In grassy woodland in a disturbed area under group of Native Cherry (Exocarpos cupressiformis) trees; flowering and fruiting; Currawongs observed eating the fruits of the nightshade; hand weeded and partially sprayed in Sept 2023 as part of a trial to manage Cleavers (and other nutrient loving exotic herbs) in the nutrient enriched soils under Native Cherry trees; Cleavers greatly reduced, however, apart from the nightshades, several very large Paterson's Curse plants with rosettes of 1m+ in diameter; see https://canberra.naturemapr.org/sightings/4560188.
