weedy wednesday - boneseed

so this is probably preaching to the converted
but if you are new to this gardening game you may need a few pointers about weeds

lets get the ball rolling with this little gem
it looks pretty enough, a nice yellow daisy
it looks like it belongs

but this awful plant is BONESEED
 its an invasive weed of bushlands and natural areas
it will exclude native plants and contribute to erosion

not a problem on farms as livestock will give it a thrashing

to control, pull smaller plants by hand, do not compost as seeds are very hard and will germinate from garden waste

for larger plants refer to the "how to"  for control
