Residents interested in learning more about  weeds and how to remove from their garden them can now download Council's new booklet - Recognising and managing environmental weeds.

Environmental weeds are plants that invade natural areas such as bushlands, waterways and native grasslands. They may be native or introduced plant species and are often common garden plant 'escapees' that produce prolific seed and grow easily.

The booklet contains information on the most serious environmental weeds that are currently threatening local biodiversity. It provides a pictorial guide to help residents identify weeds, strategies for removing them and suggests replacement plants.

Agriculture Victoria also has some great information on the growth and lifecycle of blackberries, their impact to the environment and how to control them.
