@MichaelMulvaney : A further 100+ seedlings/plants (including roots) bagged and removed from the larger area today. Flowering plants prioritised. This will be an ongoing job as still many to collect.

Thanks @owenh and @MichaelMulvaney This location, along with our other sites was slated for chemical control of the Spanish heath this fortnight. We will still search the site for any follow up areas.

Many thanks for the advice @HarleyB , good to know. Still a bit of small stuff around these areas and now I know you monitor/treat here will leave them be (and in future).
