Grow Me Instead

Through the National Grow Me Instead program, NGIA is taking a significant step in tackling one of the nation's most serious environment problems - the spread of weeds.

As part of the program, a Grow Me Instead booklet has been developed for each state/territory which contains a list of plants that were formerly grown and sold to gardeners and have since jumped the garden fence' and become invasive in the natural environment.

The aim of these booklets, and the Grow Me Instead program as a whole, is to educate horticulturalists and gardeners to recognise and remove the plants listed and replace them with superior, suitable non-invasive alternatives.

This important education resource is a pivotal step in preventing the spread of environmental weeds. Booklets can be obtained from your state association or downloaded below.
