Ban Goutweed Sales in HRM!

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!

Goutweed (aka ground elder, herb gerard, bishop's weed, gout wort, snow-in-the-mountain, and masterwort) is an invasive plant that readily spreads over large areas. It is highly competitive, and reduces the diversity of our gardens in HRM. 

Our neighbours spend large amounts of time, effort and money to eliminate the invasive weed but we can't get rid of it. It takes over our gardens and lays waste to the investments we make in our properties. 

Garden centres and nurseries across the city sell the plant as a ground cover. 

We want local businesses to agree to stop selling this noxious plant. It won't stop the problem. It it will help ensure it doesn't continue to grow.
