We also thank William Thompson, Sheridan Matthews and Alice Si for assistance in the field. The manuscript was greatly improved by comments from two anonymous referees. This project was funded by an Environmental Grant from the City of Sydney. We would like to thank Sophie Golding from the City of Sydney Council for help throughout the project. This work would not have been possible without the cooperation of our community gardeners who graciously allowed us to sample in their gardens.
