Gypsyrose I am not a farmer but have some experience with fire fighting. For my two cents worth I would keep growth down during the summer, it will always regrow. I know it is nice to live out of the city,but seeing some of the photos of the aftermath of Black Saturday, there is no way that I would ...

Hello Shirley
Well blow me down! Apart from a few plantations of Salix alba var caerulea for cricket bats, I would have thought you would be hard pressed to find anything except Salix babylonica?
Cheers

Let us hope an answer can be found to our water crisis. What about the much maligned 'Cubbie Station' Surely either some of their water can be bought back or their entitlement can be cut back (maybe it hasn't happened because the government likes its take too much!) I went for a walk along the local...

Shirl, I sent an email to DSE got a reply back saying the burnt areas would naturally revegatate, will let you know if and when 'Treeproject' replies. Sent an email to the 'Feds' about WONS status, didn't even get a reply. Perhaps we should all get out there and contact the 'powers that be' and see ...

I came across this site today http://www.treeproject.asn.au . They are involved in people growing seedlings at home for revegetation purposes. The site says that they grow seedlings that are local to the area. I would encourage everyone to send them an email (info@treeproject.asn.au) and lobbying th...

Sons of Bee's

I was working in my garden today and noticed that although there were many plants in flower, I didn't see any bees flying around. Is it just because the weather is still cold and wet or are there other reasons? Has anybody else noticed this phenomenon?

Duane There is a new greenhouse gas that puts CO2 in the shade. It makes up 80% of the total greenhouse gases. It is a deadly poison.

Sorry G By and large we 'guilty humans' (sorry I don't feel in the least bit guilty for eating three meals a day, watching TV or driving a car) are not responsible for the level of CO2 in the atmosphere. Now while science, dramatically opposite what you would expect, is full of uncertainties, people...
