The Grow Me Instead Program

Grow Me Instead (GMI) is an initiative of the Nursery and Garden Industry Australia (NGIA) promoting a positive change in the attitude of both industry and consumers toward invasive plants. Originally starting in NSW as 'Discovering Alternatives to Garden Escapes' the Grow Me Instead program now covers the whole of Australia. Funding from the Australian Government has enabled digital publication of Grow Me Instead guides for each state and territory.

Further information on the National GMI Program is available at as well as regional PDF booklets.
