coffee arabica

I had planned to plant a few coffee arabica plants later this months. Now, at the Kuring-gai Council (Syndey) wild flower festival I picked up a council brochure listed all types of weeds. I found coffee arabica listed there. Does that mean it is an offence to plant a few of these plants or on complaints by neighbours I have to remove them?

A plant can ultimately produce a lot of berries and there are restrictions in Queensland and northern NSW. But Ku-ring-gai Council's website doesn't currently mention it as a noxious weed, nuisance plant or urban environmental weed so it's no offence there. (Hard to know why it's ended up in their printed literature.) And I haven't heard any rumblings about its weed potential as far south as Sydney where it's growing in the Botanic Gardens.

Use old egg boxes to raise seeds and discarded toilet roll tubes to start your runner beans off...cheaper than buying plant pots.
