WANDERING DEW, Commelina cyanea is on the rampage at the gardens. It is a native plant and serves a purpose in the right place but in the vegie patch it can be a nightmare. Please pull it out around your plots and anywhere else you come across it in the gardens and dispose of it properly. Pippy has set up piles covered in black plastic so ask her if your not sure where to put it. Here’s a photo to help identify it…
