That's great Pam, thanks for those good links. But where are the bloody pictures so novices like me can identify them when out and about! Guess I'll have to google each name that I don't recognise and try to get a thumbnail. And when I say pictures, I DON'T mean drawings, it's really hard to identify a grass from a drawing!

Good point - I'll see what I can do. :)

EDIT: Why is it that so many government bodies do not have email contact details? :roll:

Because then the public would contact them...

Are you sure you're not a public servant Sam? You seem to have a pretty good idea of how it works. :lol:

Don't know about the rest but Victoria has all the pictures on one page hidden under the heading of "State Prohibited Weeds" which is under "S" in the alphabetical section of Noxious weeds, if all that makes sense. :roll: I also noted that "Marijuana" is listed as a noxious weed, what a bummer. :lol: :lol: :lol:
Thanks Pam, they are handy sites. :D

In a previous life. It was vastly different to banking.

Now I'm a "childrens' servant".

The Art of being a Public Servant is to know which way the sun comes up in the morning, if it comes up in the North you do this, if it comes up in the South you do that, for all other times you do nothing. :roll: :lol: :lol: :lol:

I don't know what's funnier...Sam's comment or Marijuana being on the list. I didn't actually notice it on the SA list, I was too busy being amazed that Arum Lillies, aga-bloody-panthus and gazania aren't on it!!!!

It would be good to make this post a sticky (Y)

"The Art of being a Public Servant is to know which way the sun comes up in the morning"

reminds me of a joke I heard the other day.

why don't public servants look out the window in the morning? Because then they'd having nothing to do in the afternoon :lol:

But we could move desks and look out more than one window. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Gotta say, a lot of the people I worked with in the PS were very hard working people, but there again, there were a lot that were there just for the holiday. :roll:

The Nursery & Garden Industry Qld (other states & regions have done it or doing it) has just published a booklet "Grow Me Instead" for SEQ. Available from all nurseries who are members of NGIQ. A lot of people and organisations had input into it. It's not perfect but pretty good. It lists plants seen as potential weeds and gives a few alternatives. Also says 'Ask your local retailer for other alternatives' so puts some responsibility on retailers too. My only issue with it was a number of plants seemed to be recommended as alternatives to quite a few plants - more variety needed me thinks. BTW - the bit about ask your local retailer was first suggested by moi. And my suggestion to include Gazania wasn't picked up, probably no room. I might add most of the new hybrid gazania have sterile seeds (not all though)
