Take a look at the first picture here; you can see the root trainer grade plants at 5 ½ months. Note how the pre planting preparation circle is still evident and has not encroached on the plants space. This has allowed a wide opening around the plants letting in as much light as possible. In another 14 days we will be following up with more weed maintenance.
The second picture is of 1-ltre plants at 2.5 months (just visible, the plant is barely visible) if left potentially 60 plants could die. This was a community-based project, which we at NativeAwa have come across. It is evident that there was no pre preparation or maintenance program in place for this project. Preplanning and good advice is just as essential as the after care maintenance programme. Too much time and money has been spent here for these Native Plants to go to waste.
