How a WA couple have used hardy plants as a firebreak.

 

Yallingup couple's fire-resistant succulent paradiseThis story is from WA, but very interesting as to how this couple has used plants as a firebreak around their property, but haven't sacrificed beauty to do it.
 
I thought this may be of interest to some of our customers who live in high fire danger areas.

Blue-green algae spreads along Murray River

THE Murray River’s toxic blue-green algae bloom is expected to stretch 700km from Lake Hume to the South Australian border in just weeks.

In what is already one of the nation’s worst ever recorded algae outbreaks, experts say only nature can stop the bloom’s spread, through heavy rain and colder weather.

Bendigo has gone 27 straight days without a drop rain since 0.2mm fell on February 3.
