Jacobaea Vulgaris – Yellow Ragwort is a noxious weed in New Zealand, a plant that destroyed farmers land, if not eradicated yearly. Plowing up new land for grassing down, bad news, once the ground was disturbed the seeds germinated, they had been covered up for hundreds of years, by the early settlers breaking in the land.

My husband and I spent some thirty years, spraying, pulling flowering ragwort and burning it, but the ragwort still kept trying to take over the farm, what a nightmare, there are many stories I could tell you about this subject, maybe one day I will.
