SELWYN TIMES Latest Christchurch news at www. .kiwi Tuesday June 20 2017 27 ardening Herbs flourish in winter • By Marilyn Wightman Many herbs are underground for winter months. They know how to take a holiday and avoid the cold weather. Winter, though, is when ‘pot herbs’ come into their own. They gained their name centuries ago when the daily food was prepared in probably the only pot in the house (or hovel), which sat over the fireplace. MARJORAM (ORIGANUM VULGARE) Able to be called either marjoram or oregano, there are about 25 different varieties available in New Zealand. Rule of thumb is the lighter the flower colour the stronger the flavour. The colour range of flowers goes from white, light pink, through to dark pink and deep purple. Oregano is a low-growing, spreading perennial. It is only in summer that the flowering sprigs grow to 30cm or more. THYME (THYMUS VULGARIS) The thyme family has lots of varieties, mainly shrubby perennials that get 30cm high. Finely leaved and multi-stalked, thyme likes sun and good shelter. ROSEMARY (ROSMARINUS OFFICINALIS) A heat-loving herb, rosemary flourishes in well-drained, sunny positions in the garden. Its Latin name translates as ‘rose of the sea’. Rosemary grows into a healthy large bush in the right conditions. A trim in autumn helps keep it tidy and uniform, as well as compact and less prone to wind damage. SAGE (SALVIA VULGARE) The Latin name comes from ‘salvere’ meaning ‘to save’. This perennial herb grows up to 50cm high in a sheltered, full sun position where it will thrive for many years. It dislikes heavy, boggy clay and if conditions are not to its liking then it will die. Mounding it up to give better drainage is one solution. There are different varieties available – red sage, variegated sage and non-flowering types as well as the usual blue-flowered common sage. CHERVIL (ANTHRISCUS CEREFOLIUM) This herb is a short-lived annual that thrives in winter. Once spring arrives and the weather warms, chervil leaves quickly turn pink. The plant shoots up into flowering mode, sets seed and dies. Leave the bedraggled plant as long as possible so those elongated, black seeds mature and drop to provide new plants once winter weather arrives the following year. Chervil has a delicate, anise flavour. SAVORY (SATUREJA MONTANA) This little-known herb has ‘montana’ – Latin for mountain – in its name, indicating it is a hardy herb. Savory prefers poor soils and good drainage. Adding too much compost or manure tends to soften the growth so give it just a moderate top-dressing in autumn and spring. BAY (LAURUS NOBILIS) The hardy, leathery leaved trees provide great shade, can withstand windy conditions, are easily clipped and shaped, and grow as well in a container as in the garden. Trees can grow up to 5m high if left untrimmed. Bays look after themselves. An annual dressing of compost and manure is their one requirement.

If you are travelling from Christchurch, the best way to Intelligro is to turn right from Main South Road onto Curraghs Road, then left onto Manion Road just before the railway. Visit our facebook page for regular updates: NZTA has now closed the original Main South Road entrance to Intelligro. For the remainder of June, access to Intelligro is only available via the Curraghs Road end of Manion Road. Follow Manion road along the railway line and you will find us where “261” is on the map. Access from Weedons Ross Road will not be available until later in June/early July while the contractors finish sealing Manion Road. While these changes are out of our hands, we would like to extend our thanks to you all for your patience and understanding as these changes take place. The new road will definitely make things a lot safer for everyone, so we are looking forward to having it all completed.Once the road is all sealed, you will be able to access Intelligro from both the Weedons Ross Road, and Curraghs Road entrances. Our new address will be 261 Manion Road. We are stIll open for busIness! If you are at all unsure about what is going on, give us a call 03 3479 415, email us or check out our website for more updates. | Phone 03 347 9415
