Gardeners to face backyard blitz on netting with new laws proposed to protect wildlife
Backyard gardeners could face fines of almost $2,500 if they are not careful when covering their fruit trees with nets.
In an Australian-first, the Victorian Government wants to legislate the colour and size of any netting used to protect household fruit trees and veggie patches.
Anyone found selling or advertising netting that does not meet the state's regulations could also face a maximum penalty of almost $2,500.
