Ponds a lovely addition
A miniature water lily is perfect for water features.
In the garden
Whether it is the reflection of
sunlight, glint of a fish or the
gentle sound of a bubbling
stream, there is something
about water in the garden that
creates its own magic.
A small pond or water
feature, even if nothing more
than a large squat ceramic pot,
will open a new world of
aquatic plants as well as birds
and insects that will be attracted
to an enriched habitat.
Nurseries often stock a range
of water plants including cold
resistant varieties of water lilies
of varying shape, size and
colour. Water lilies need a
minimum sized -- 20 to
25 centimetres -- preferably
squat pot, which offers greater
stability and a greater depth of
water over the roots.
A good home-blend mix of
three parts garden loam, one
part pulverised cow manure
plus some blood and bone
makes an ideal growing
medium. Supplementary boosts
of nutrients can be supplied
towards flowering time by
wrapping a tablespoon of
Dynamic Lifter in newspaper
and slipping it down the side of
the pot for slow release.
Plants that have outgrown
their pots after two-three years
will need to be divided and
repotted as spring growth gets
under way. Newly planted
water lilies should be
introduced gradually, first
standing the pots on a couple of
bricks so that the crown of the
plant is just below the surface
of the water. Once shoots
appear the pots can be lowered
in stages as the leaves touch the
water, until they reach the
Fish will do more than add a
colourful attraction. They will
dispatch the larvae of
mosquitoes inevitably attracted
to still water. They will also
feed off plant debris and
contribute a small supply of
nutrients which, in turn, feed
FEED clumps of
daffodils and other spring
bulbs now in flower with
an all-purpose plant food
to replenish the bulb
supply for next year's
display. The majority of
spring bulbs, especially
tulips, fare best with a
period of summer dry so
make sure they are not
being continually watered
by an automatic system.
Purchase and set out
summer flowering bulbs
such as arum lilies, liliums,
watsonias, euchomis, day
lilies and sprekalia (the
Jacobean lily). Gladioli will
reliably flower between
90 and 100 days after
planting out the corms.
Plant frost-tender basil
in sheltered pots, just in
case. It is a commonly
grown summer herb that
tomatoes in salads, pesto
and other dishes.
If you would like to try
growing a cyclamen you
have enjoyed indoors over
winter for a second
season, allow the foliage
to die down. Place the pot
still containing the corm
on its side under the cool
shade of a shrub or hedge,
until new autumn shoots
indicate time to repot.
New park and ride to reduce congestion
A new $80,000 bike and ride facility on Kippax
Place at the Kippax Centre has been opened for
West Belconnen residents.
Minister for Territory and Municipal Services
Shane Rattenbury said the facilities helped
reduce congestion on Canberra roads and ensured
Kippax residents had a chance to combine bike
and bus travel.
Network 14 services leaving from or near the
new bike and ride include the Blue Rapid routes
343 and 313, which combine to depart Kippax
every 15 minutes and travel to Belconnen, City,
Woden and Tuggeranong, regular weekday
routes 16, 17 and 44 departing throughout the day
to Belconnen and Xpresso Peak hour routes 717,
744 and 743.
"Not only is combining bike use with bus
travel a money saver, it also allows people to find
their 30 minutes of physical activity for the day,
Mr Rattenbury said.
There are 19 park and ride facilities across
