‘Drown him’ case: Suspects named

• By Andrew King

POLICE HAVE been given

names of suspects who chanted

“drown him” during a brutal

assault on a teenager.

The 15-year-old was attacked

by a group in Rolleston after the

fireworks display on November

4. They dragged him to a water

race and held his head under water.

Some in the group chanted

“drown him”.

The victim is a talented sportsman

and was back on the sports

field at the weekend, his mother,

who did not want to be named,

said yesterday.

Many people have posted

about the incident online,

including friends of the victim

who believe they know who the

attackers were, his mother said.

Names had been given to the

police.

A friend of the family posted

a message on their behalf, which

received more than 600 reactions

and a number of comments offering

support and condemning

the attack.

The 15-year-old’s mother said

the support has been amazing.

It took more than an hour-anda-half

to finish shopping at the

supermarket because people kept

stopping her.

“It was amazing to see how

many people came up to us,” she

said.

But police are saying little publicly

about finding the offenders.

Detective Senior Sergeant

Mike Ford told the Selwyn Times

yesterday there was no update.

Inquiries are ongoing, he said.

The four alleged offenders are

all teenagers, the Selwyn Times

has been told.

The attack appears to have

been robbery-motivated.

Four youths approached

the teenager on Tennyson St,

Rolleston, at about 10.30pm and

demanded his cap.

When he refused to hand it

over, he was attacked. The group

repeatedly punched him and

kicked him on the ground.

They dragged him to a nearby

water drain and held his head

under the water.

He eventually broke free and

attempted to run home.

His mother said he collapsed

near their house and caught the

attention of the neighbour’s who

brought him home.

“I didn’t recognise him, I

thought ‘who the hell are you’,”

she said.

“He couldn’t talk and his

mouth was full of blood.”

They called 111 and he was

taken to Christchurch Hospital.

The teenager was discharged

from hospital the following day.

•Anyone with information

can call the police on 363

7400 or anonymously through

Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Big boys

come out

to play

Australian Kurt Livins was among the

giants who competed to lift these

massive stones at the Hororata Highland

Games on Saturday. More than 10,000

attended the Scottish festival which

is one of the largest of its kind in the

Southern Hemisphere.

FROM

THE

EDITOR’S

DESK

PEOPLE ARE sometimes no

better than a pack of dogs.

When a pack of dogs chance

across a lone animal, or person

for that matter, they instinctively

grow in confidence and aggression.

Usually all it takes for the attack

button to be pushed is for

one or two of the dogs to push

the envelope a bit further than

normal, particularly when the

lone animal shows fear or is

pushed to the ground.

The same can be said of the

teenagers (see page 1) who

attacked a 15-year-old in Rolleston.

Not satisfied with giving him

a towelling, he was dragged to a

drain and had his head held under

water. The others watching

chanted “drown him’.

That’s pack mentality. The

good news is it seems the offenders

have been identified.

Council takes action

to ensure playgrounds are safe

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

Sam

Broughton

A CRACKDOWN on the safety

of playground equipment across

the district is to get under way

to ensure health and safety

standards are met.

More than 70 playgrounds are

managed by the

district council.

A report was

put forward to the

district council’s

audit and risk subcommittee

recently.

In the report,

bench-marking

tool Yardstick

measured Selwyn as having

about eight playgrounds per 1000

children under the age of 15.

This compares to the rest of

the country which has a median

of three playgrounds per 1000

children.

It said, while this provides

a high level of services for the

district, it comes with increased

inspection, maintenance, compliance

and management costs.

Greendale Domain and

Glentunnel Holiday Park were

identified as high hazard level

playgrounds.

Council staff are working

PROBLEMATIC: Greendale Domain, along with the Glentunnel

Holiday Park playground, have been identified as a high hazard

in a district council report.

PHOTO: ROSS KIDDIE

with the Greendale Recreation

Reserve management committee

to replace the play equipment.

The playground at Glentunnel

is not owned by the district

council but installed on its land.

Concerns over the equipment

will be raised with the campground

lessee – issues were first

raised in 2010 but have not been

addressed.

Glentunnel Holiday Park owner

Noel Langridge said he could

not comment because the district

council had not yet addressed the

problem with them.

The committee approved all

district council-owned playgrounds

and flying foxes are to

have monthly safety and operational

inspections.

Changes approved include

independent inspections by the

Royal Society for the Prevention

of Accidents each year.

Inspections of flying foxes will

occur annually, while outdoor

fitness equipment inspections are

ON THE DOMAIN LINCOLN 3 MARCH 2018

to be established in the district

council’s reserve contracts.

Mayor Sam Broughton said

playgrounds in the district and

the number of people using them

has increased.

“I think where we have infrastructure

we have built as a

council we need to make sure it

is safely used,” he said.

Accidents recorded at

Rolleston Domain and

Lincoln Event Centre

•January 20, 2017: Bruised

and swollen foot from

entrapment, playground

Lincoln hospitality scoops top award

LINCOLN Hospitality Ltd –

Catering has been recognised as

the overall winner for the Selwyn

Responsible Business Awards.

The Lincoln Envirotown

Trust held its awards celebrating

Selwyn businesses’ commitment

to environmental sustainability

and community involvement

Lincoln University Early

Childhood Centre won the new

special “educators” trophy donated

by the Biological Husbandry

Unit Organics Trust.

While the award ceremonies

had been previously held in different

areas, it was the first time

the whole district came together

to receive recognition for their

work.

The event was held at the

Rolleston Community Centre

lounge.

Lincoln Envirotown trustee

Sue Jarvis said there were two excellent

presentations to encourage

businesses to do more.

Presentations were made by

James McDonald of Yealands

Wineries and Martin and Lisa

Bennett of The Laboratory in

Lincoln.

Mr McDonald gave an insight

into the myriad of steps that they

have taken to become a sustainable

enterprise.

There were hurdles along the

way – the attempt to use guinea

pigs to be non-fuel burning

“mowers” was met with glee by

the hawk population.

The guinea pigs had to be

replaced with miniature sheep

imported at great expense.

The Laboratory Lincoln discussed

how they had built their

establishment using materials

from buildings condemned by

the Canterbury earthquakes.

Rangi Ruru Girls’ School staircases

and the former Hororata

pub’s bar are part of The Laboratory’s

establishment.

Dr Jarvis said all participants

were winners and the trust

would like to congratulate everyone.

Many schools have waste-free

lunch boxes, some enterprises

are re-using water, others have

schemes” and native tree planting

also like to thank Dave Fitzjohn

and the trust for all their hard

work and the district council for

its financial support.

“It was a true celebration of

the wonderful things businesses

are doing alongside providing us

with our goods and services,” Dr

Jarvis said.

Hearing clinic to host free talks on tinnitus

Do you have constant buzz or ringing in your

ears or head? Tinnitus affects up to 15 per cent

of the population yet there is a persistent myth

that nothing can be done to treat it, says audiologist

Brenna Sincock.

it differently, although common manifestations

include hearing buzzing, whistling, roaring or

hissing sounds. Its exhausting and frustrating

and it is important that people are aware that

there are solutions and relief is achievable.

To dispel that notion and share with people the

latest developments in treatment, her clinic,

Brenna Sincock Hearing will this month host

free seminars with international guest speaker

Dr Jill Benner.

Benner’s doctorate in audiology from Pennsylvania’s

Bloomsburg University is complemented

by specialist work in neurological disorders of

the ear, and seats for the November 20 and 21

seminars are expected to fill quickly. Tinnitus,

characterised by noises heard in the ear or head,

is for a minority of sufferers extremely bothersome.

Unfortunately, many people delay seeking

help due to a perception there is no way to

alleviate the condition, Brenna says.

“People need to know there are solutions,” she

says. “The technology has come so far and a

great percentage of people experience huge

relief now due to this.” While tinnitus is often

associated with hearing loss – particularly

noise-related hearing loss – it can also present

in otherwise unaffected people, Brenna says.

It is not a disease but a symptom, she notes,

adding that regardless of the cause, the sooner

treatment is provided, the more effective it is.

A small hearing aid can sometimes put an end

to tinnitus on the spot, while in other cases

strategies can be learned to minimise the noises

heard. These techniques can result in marked

improvements and a better quality of life. Brenna

says every person with tinnitus experiences

In addition to noise-induced hearing loss, tinnitus

can also result from buildup of earwax, ear

infections, temporary exposure to loud sounds,

and age-related hearing loss.

Dr Benner’s expertise in neurotology follows

from a long tenure at an ear, nose and throat

practice in the United States. She is passionate

about helping people with their hearing and her

seminar is sure to inform attendees.

“Knowledge is key”, says Brenna. “Our aim is to

inform people of their options so they can live

without the impact of tinnitus. “

> To secure a place at the free-of-charge

seminars on tinnitus, being held at Lincoln &

Rolleston Community Cenrtres on November 20

and 21, contact the clinic on 03 390 2332.

Water races set to close

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

THE CLOSURE of water races

in Sheffield and Springfield has

been described as “death by

a thousand cuts” by a district

councillor.

Debra Hasson

is concerned the

closure of water

races in Malvern

to make way for

the Central Plains

Water scheme is

Watson

gain.

Her concerns

were raised at the

district council

meeting last week.

The closures were

approved by the

district council

with Cr Hasson’s

vote recorded

against the decision.

“We are potentially

losing a water

resource for our farming community

long-term,” Cr Hasson

said.

She told Selwyn Times the

district council needed to take

into account the impact CPW’s

pipes will have on cropping and

biodiversity in the future.

“It is not all going to be

transferred to dairy, it needs

to be transferred to cropping.

Cropping requires fertilisation

of seeds. If you are going to pipe

everything and deliver it by the

irrigation scheme, how is the

biodiversity going to survive?”

she said.

But her concern received little

support from other councillors.

Cr Craig Watson said while it

could be argued the closures are

interfering with future farming,

the district council is only closing

down rats and mice, leaving

the district with the overall

boom of the water race.

“We lessen our takes but we

increase, maintain our costs . . .

This is the right thing to do,” he

said.

His views were backed by Cr

Pat McEvedy who said the decision

hasn’t been reached lightly

and council has already agreed

to this process by helping fund

CPW.

In June, a report went to

the sub-committee to approve

consultation over the water race

closures.

The closures received 100 per

cent support and no submissions

were received.

The report put to the district

council highlighted the Department

of Conservation did not

have the resources to go collect

the species from the water races

free of charge.

The water races potentially

have longfin eel, Canterbury

galaxias, upland bully and freshwater

mussels.

Cr Nicole Reid said it needs to

find a suitable way to collect the

fish to protect the species.

“That should be a requirement

of being able to close that down,”

she said.

But the district council’s water

asset manager Murray England

said if DOC can’t do it, a ecologist

will, meaning the ratepayer

has to fund the fish removal.

The report said companies

equipped to undertake electrofishing

are likely to attract a

significant cost.

RELIEF:

Residents in

Selwyn may

not have

restrictions on

the amount of

water they use

over summer.

High rainfall may mean

no water restrictions

HIGH rainfall throughout

the year may mean

properties in Selwyn will

not have to go on water

restrictions over summer.

The district council

wants to ensure properties

connected to its water supplies

can have good water

service.

Asset manager Murray

Washington said high

rainfall during winter

meant the district council

is in a good position to

meet the increased water

demand during summer.

“There is no immediate

need for mandatory water

restrictions,” he said.

But Mr Washington

said it is asking residents

to consider changing their

lawn irrigation timing to

help keep the water networks

stable.

“Water supplies are

placed under pressure

during summer as many

people decide to water

their lawns and gardens at

the same time,” he said.

Residents on district

council water supplies

are encouraged to water

lawns between 9pm-6am

or 9am-4pm, as these are

times when households use

the least water. Residents

should avoid irrigating

between 6-9am or 4-9pm

and check the weather conditions

before watering.

A district council media

release said watering lawns

during the middle of the

day, during hot days or

when a nor’west wind is

blowing, result in a lot of

water evaporating.

Watering on a cooler

overcast day is a better

option as it has the opportunity

to soak into lawns

and gardens.

If demand for water

increases over summer,

water restrictions may

be introduced requiring

households to avoid watering

lawns at specific times.

Summer water

restrictions are commonly

used in New Zealand as a

way to manage demand for

water.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Street names causing friction

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

SELWYN’S POLICY for naming

newly built roads has come

under scrutiny after more effort

than usual went into deciding a

name for a road in Rolleston last

week.

The district council was tasked

with approving a new name for

a road in the

Twyn Visions

Ltd subdivision

at its meeting on

Wednesday.

The three

names to choose

from were Ruby

Jean Drive, Jean

Mark

Alexander

Grant Miller

Archie Drive

and Twyn Visions

Drive.

The options

were approved

by Land Information

New

Zealand.

But not everyone

was on

the same page

when it came to

choosing their

preferred name.

Councillor Mark Alexander

was the first to raise concerns

over the name of Ruby Jean

Drive due the township already

GROWING PAINS: How streets are named in new subdivisions is causing friction around the

district council table.

having a road called Ruby Drive.

“Two roads beginning with

Ruby in the same township has

potential for confusion of emergency

services and if we can do

our best to avoid that confusion

we should,” he said.

He said it should be named

Jean Archie Drive.

His stance was supported by

district councillor Craig Watson.

Councillors Nicole Reid and

Debra Hasson raised concerns

about the lack of information

provided on the background

behind the names.

Cr Hasson suggested the

district council may need to look

into its naming policy.

“We are starting to get lots

of double barrel names . . . I

understand it is named after a

subdivision. Why couldn’t it just

be Twyn Drive or Vision Drive,

something more simple,” she

said.

But Cr Alexander said he was

not a fan of Twyn Visions Drive.

He said the spelling would always

create confusion and he did

not favour developers naming

roads after themselves.

But councillor Grant Miller

said these are significant subdivisions

adding a lot to the community.

“It is the least we can do if it

suits them,” he said.

Cr Miller said while it would

be good to get an explanation on

the background on the names,

developers are usually trying to

honour a significant relation or

person.

But Deputy Mayor Malcolm

Lyall said: “I would just like to

remind Cr Miller the developers

might put a lot of money into our

subdivision but they also take a

lot of money out.”

But the argument brought a

splash of humour to the table

with councillor Pat McEvedy

describing the debate as “turning

into a farce” and Mayor Sam

Broughton joking it was good

to see what items on the agenda

were most hotly debated.

The district council approved

Jean Archie Drive.

Drivers should stop

at busy Tai Tapu

intersection

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

MOTORISTS ARE being urged

to stop at a busy intersection in

Tai Tapu.

Police have assessed the

intersection of Old Tai Tapu Rd

and Christchurch Akaroa Rd

following complaints of poor

visibility and motorists failing

to stop.

Senior Sergeant Pete Stills recently

drove to the intersection

to observe.

“My attitude was if you stop

and look, the visibility was

sufficient. One of the issues of

not coming to a complete stop

is you cut down your time, you

cut down your ability to have a

good look,” he said.

The Tai Tapu Community

Association has been working

to resolve the issues for more

than a year.

But the committee’s chairman

Gerald Carter said he

could not comment on the

resolutions as it is for the New

Zealand Transport Agency and

the district council to comment

on.

The district council’s asset

engineer Mark Chamberlain

said it was not aware of any

submissions made in the past 12

months on the intersection.

It previously had a speed indicator

on Lincoln Tai Tapu Rd

which turns into Old Tai Tapu

Rd at the intersection as part of

four signs rotated throughout

the district.

But it does not have plans to

install more.

NZTA traffic safety engineer

David Scarlet said there are

already speed indicator devices

within the township at the approaches

to the school.

It comes as concerns were

raised over the safety of large

groups of cyclists in the area are

assembling near The Store before

embarking on their cycle

trip.

A resident, who did not wish

to be named, said on a recent

Sunday morning there were cyclists

scattered across the road

and they did not seem to have

consideration for other people

using the road.

But police had not received

complaints about cyclists at the

intersection.

to extend stop signs onto the

road in both directions, which

signal approaching drivers to

stop.

Once the traffic is slowing or

has stopped, the patrol signals to

waiting pedestrians that it’s safe

to cross the road.

Patrol members undergo a

full day’s training, comprising

of theory in the classroom

followed by practical work on

the street.

Once qualified, patrollers are

given a refresher course after

two to three months and stay

with the patrol for a minimum

of one, and up to three, years.

FUTURE: West Melton pupils Jella, Sam, Olive, Solomon,

Crystal, James, Dom, Lachlan, Carter, Hayley, Yamato and

Piper with new teacher Pam Berry-Mason.

It just makes

Water Sense!

Summer is on its way, and we want to ensure properties connected to Council water supplies can

enjoy good water service during the warmer time of year.

High rainfall during winter means the Council is in a good position to meet increased water

demand during summer, with no immediate need for mandatory water restrictions.

However, we do ask residents to consider changing their lawn irrigation timing to help keep the

water networks stable. Water supplies are placed under pressure during summer as many people

decide to water their lawns and gardens at the same time.

So that we can continue to supply households with water over summer, and to help conserve water,

we are recommending that residents on Council water supplies try to water lawns between 9am–

4pm and 9pm–6am (most recommended). These are times when households use the least water.

If demand for water increases over summer, water restrictions may be introduced requiring

households to avoid watering lawns at specific times. Summer water restrictions are commonly

used in New Zealand as a way to manage demand for water.

When to water your lawn or garden

The best time to irrigate is between 9pm–

6am, or alternatively between 9am–4pm.

Avoid irrigating between 6–9am

or 4–9pm.

Check weather conditions before

watering. Watering your lawn during the

middle of the day, during hot days or

when a Nor’ West is blowing results in a

lot of water evaporating. Watering on a

cooler overcast day is a better option as

water has the opportunity to soak into

your lawn or garden.

waste. Only household amounts of garden waste will be accepted

$15 per twin axle trailer. Cash only (no EFTPOS). Proceeds from

gate fees will be donated to the Ellesmere Heritage Park. For more

information phone 347 2800 or email admin@selwyn.govt.nz.

Book identifies Polynesian origins

A topic at Pan Pacific conferences has been

where Polynesian people originated and

a number of scientists have explored this

question.

By 1961, solid evidence backed Polynesians

as the first people to live in the Pacific. Part

of the Austronesian family, Polynesians have

been linked indigenously and genetically

to the people of Southeast Asia, Taiwan and

Madagascar.

Recent research carried out, including

that by local Historian Cedric Livingstone,

points to a strong connection between the

Polynesian people and South Africa, Egypt and

Madagascar.

As a child, Cedric lived on the other side of the

fence from the Porangahau Pa and became

inextricably linked to its people through a

Tapu placed over him that protected him and

his family, and bestowed the role of keeper

of the secrets and Māori history. Māori elders

later requested him to find their homeland.

In researching where New Zealand Polynesians

originated, Cedric believes the journey began

on the veldt of South Africa. Indications of this

are: the Poi food paste eaten there, which is

a traditional dish of Polynesians; language

similarities; Lapita pottery; canoe design; and

similarity between Māori Tukutuku panels and

clothing of the time.

In his research, Cedric has found many similar

representations which are recorded in his

book ‘The Origin of the Polynesians’. The book

explores the discovery of the Polynesians’

homeland and the route the pre-Polynesians/

Austronesian Māoris used to get to the Pacific

some 3,300 years ago.

Starting with the realisation that a Māori

woman in New Zealand was called Titihuia,

named after a little insect eating bird only

found on the veldt of South Africa – the

Titihuia, Cedric believes a catastrophic event

on the veldt caused various tribes to flee to the

island of Madagascar where they developed

a common language. He suggests there was

further migration north to Egypt where words

of that language correspond with Māori, for

example Ra meaning sun or the term for great

prestige, ah-mana (shortened to mana).

One of these refugees was a woman called Kea,

who when the tribes left Madagascar to travel

north along the East Coast of Africa, married

the Egyptian Pharaoh of the day. Kea’s remains

are the only known remains of an Austronesian

– the ancestors of the Polynesians. Her 3,300

year old mummified body is in the cave of

Cairo Museum, which undertook the DNA

testing.

‘The Origin of the Polynesians’ presents many

interesting arguments to support the scenario

that Polynesian roots go back to the veldt of

South Africa.

Cedric Livingstone’s book ‘The Origin of the

Polynesians’ makes interesting reading. It

can be purchased at The Little Book Company

Bookshop in Rangiora, which you contact via

Facebook.

“The Origin of the

Polynesians”

The two outside idols are Egyptian, the centre one is Polynesian. The

Egyptian idol Bes is the God for the protection of women and infants

during childbirth.

A 100% match for the Maori Tiki, “The traditional meaning of the Tiki

being the God of protection of women and infants during childbirth

- a meaning too complicated be a coincidence”.

This is the PROOF that the Egyptians came to New Zealand .

The Origin of the Polynesians is available at the Little Book Company

bookshop in Rangiora.

Canterbury will still have a

strong voice in Parliament

MP for Selwyn Amy

Adams writes about

how small business

owners in Selwyn

may be affected if the

Government abolishes

its 90-day trial period

for new employees

This week Parliament

sits again for the first time

since the election with a

new minority Government

in place.

While it is a new experience

sitting in the opposition

benches, I remain

incredibly proud to be

representing Selwyn once

again and will continue

to focus on the issues that

matter to our communities.

Canterbury was wellrepresented

under the

previous Government

with a number of cabinet

ministers hailing from this

region.

Furthermore, both Sir

John Key and Leader of the

Opposition Bill English

grew up in the South

Island.

Unfortunately, the new

Government has only one

Canterbury-based minister

in the new Cabinet, which

is where the key decisions

Amy Adams

Selwyn MP

in Government are made.

Our region will still have

a strong voice in Parliament,

however, as I am

joined by many National

colleagues in the Opposition

who are based in

Canterbury electorates and

have a strong understanding

of what matters to

Cantabrians going about

their daily lives, whether in

a small rural settlement or

in our larger urban centres.

In my own role as the

Opposition spokeswoman

for justice and workplace

relations and safety I am

already concerned at the

direction that the new

Government is taking in

announcing its intention

to abolish the 90-day trial

period for new employees.

I have spoken to many

small business owners

around Selwyn over the

past few years and they

have told me that this

legislation has encouraged

them to take a risk in hiring

a new staff member,

EMPLOYMENT:

Concern is

raised at the

direction

that the new

Government

is taking in

announcing

its intention

to abolish the

90-day trial

period for new

employees.

particularly a young and

inexperienced one.

In most cases, the new

staff member has worked

out well and proven to be

an asset to their business.

However, if the staff

member does not perform

satisfactorily, the employer

is able to end the employment

relationship with

notice and after having

given the employee appropriate

feedback and the

opportunity to improve.

The 90-day trial period

is not just a useful tool for

small business owners but

is also appreciated by many

employees because it gives

them the opportunity to

decide if a new job is really

suited to them before committing

to it long-term.

What do you think of

plans to abolish the

90-day trial period for

employees? Email

GOOD IDEA: Mayor Sam Broughton is offering to give $10 to any 10-year-old

Cash offer among

mayor’s initiatives

Mayor Sam Broughton

writes about three

quirky initiatives he

has been working on

to help the creative

minds in Selwyn

Sam

Broughton

Selwyn Mayor

THERE ARE three new

initiatives that I have been

working on with others to

support participation in

our community.

They are 10TEN10, $500

community solution, and

the ‘Largest Pumpkin’

growing competition.

Ten dollars for 10

10-year-olds is a way to

support new ideas that

our young people have.

In my role, I am privileged

to meet lots of great

people who need a helping

hand to get an idea off the

ground.

I know $10 isn’t much

but Selwyn is full of

10-year-olds with entrepreneurial

skills who are

excited about multiplying

those dollars into two or

three times that amount.

Posters and opportunities

for this have been

distributed through our

schools.

The $500 community

solution is about getting a

solution completed.

The district council is

involved in lots of great

projects but, by our

nature, sometimes things

can take a while or cost

more that what might be

expected.

If you’re thinking “why

doesn’t the district council

get onto doing . . . I know

I could do it for $500”,

then I want to hear from

you.

You can email your idea

in under 200 words to

bernadette.ryan@selwyn.

govt.nz

The pumpkin growing

competition is a joint

initiative with our Selwyn

Waihora Zone Committee

chairman Allen Lim.

We want to see who can

grow the biggest pumpkin

this summer.

Mr Lim has grown

a number of seedlings

which are being

distributed to schools and

individuals over the next

week.

Our hope is that this is

also a good opportunity to

talk about the use of water

and nutrients as we grow

food to feed the world.

I’ll be growing

a pumpkin at the

district council offices

in Rolleston over the

summer.

the above initiatives feel

Backyard Critters

Harvestmen – alien-like arachnids

Mike Bowie is

an ecologist

who

specialises in

entomology

(insects and

other invertebrates).

Each week he

introduces a new

species found in his

backyard at Lincoln.

His column aims to

raise public awareness

of biodiversity, the

variety of living things

around us

COMMON: Gardeners only

need to pull a few weeds

out and Harvestmen will be

scuttling for cover.

HARVESTMEN are arachnids

along with spiders, scorpions,

pseudoscorpions, ticks and

mites.

As many as 6500 species of

harvestmen are known worldwide.

Harvestmen differ from

spiders, having only two eyes,

as opposed to six or eight in

spiders.

Spider abdomens are easy to

differentiate from the rest of

the body, whereas in harvestmen,

the abdomen is fused and

difficult to distinguish.

Harvestmen also lack the

silk-producing organs and

poison glands that are present

in spiders.

The European harvestmen

(Phalangium opilio), sometimes

called daddy-long-legs, is

the most common harvestmen

worldwide and one of the more

common invertebrates found

in New Zealand vegetable

gardens.

You only need to pull a few

weeds out and these longlegged

critters will be scuttling

for cover.

The adult European harvestmen

and grey to brown in colour.

They have eight very long

legs below their small ovalshaped

bodies, resembling the

fictional War of the Worlds

martian creatures.

Their two eyes are located

in a raised eye mound making

them truly alien-like.

Harvestman are omnivores

feeding on a range of dead and

organic matter, but are also

useful predators of small pest

invertebrates including mites,

aphids, caterpillars, snails and

slugs.

Get involved

in sister city

projects

THE DISTRICT council and the

Malvern Community Board are

encouraging residents to get involved

in sister city projects.

Selwyn has five international sister

city relationships with opportunities

for Selwyn residents to be involved

in China, Japan, Indonesia and the

United States.

Sister cities projects include Rewi

Alley celebrations in Springfield in

December as well as visits to China,

Japan and Indonesia next year.

Sister city committee chairwoman

Allison Rosanowski said a celebration

is planned at Springfield in

December, to mark the 120th anniversary

of Rewi Alley’s birth.

“We’re delighted to be welcoming

more than 80 guests from China,

including six from our sister city, at

the celebration,” she said.

The commemorative event will be

held at the Rewi Alley Memorial in

Springfield on Saturday, December

2 at 2pm. To register an interest

in attending, email rewi.alley.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Patrolling the community

Malvern Community Patrol

Committee member Ian

Dampier writes about what

the committee has been up

to in the last few weeks and

road safety issues in the

area

AS WE rapidly come towards

the end of our fourth year

of operation, the Malvern

Community Patrol continues to

patrol the wider communities of

the Malvern district responding

to various situation as we find

them.

We continue to mount both

rostered and irregular patrols

day and night and respond

to situations throughout the

Malvern district as required.

The vast majority of the

community continue to be

overwhelmingly supportive

of our organisation and its

activities and the detractors are

very much in the minority, and

often our target audience.

To those individuals who

would say that our activities

should be the area of the

police, and only the police, we

would respond by saying that

community problems require

community initiatives and

community solutions. Operating

under the umbrella of the police,

CPNZ provides that structured

community response.

That said, we do not see

ourselves as anything other than

what we are, nor are we setting

ourselves up as something we

are not.

We simply see ourselves as

a community-based volunteer

service that assists where possible

and liaises with other agencies

to provide additional and,

when necessary, a professional

response.

Two weeks ago, the patrol

founds itself assisting the

Darfield police and two locals

to move half a dozen Aberdeen

Angus calves off State Highway

73 in the hours of darkness

that were causing chaos and

represented a serious risk to

traffic.

The previous week the patrol

EYES AND EARS: The Malvern Community Patrol vehicle.

responded in support of the

Darfield police to reports of

youths throwing stones at trains

as they passed through Darfield.

On the issue of road safety,

while a significant element of

road users continue to decry the

police for issuing infringement

notices and fines for breaches

of the road traffic regulations

and labelling this as “revenue

gathering”, the Malvern

Community Patrol is alarmed at

the poor standard of driving on

the districts roads.

There is little wonder that

Selwyn road accident statistics

feature among the highest in the

country as drivers continue to

fail to acknowledge the formula

of factors contributing to road

accidents and blatantly ignore

the traffic regulations.

This includes failure to stop,

failure to give-way, and cellphone

use while operating a motor

vehicle.

Five minutes of observation

at any of the intersections

controlled by stop signs in

Darfield should lead any casual

observer to wonder how much

consideration his or her fellow

road users have for the safety of

other road users.

At least 50 per cent of drivers

fail to abide by the letter of the

law, instead preferring to

treat the intersection as a “giveway”.

One of the other causative

factors in road traffic accidents is

cellphone use.

A prime example is the

number of parents arriving to

drop off their children at the

pre-school on South Tce or at

Darfield Primary School on Ross

St. In the family motor vehicle

while on the phone defies belief.

Why would you?

What on earth would

possesses any adult to be driving

their most treasured and

vulnerable family members to

day care while text messaging or

talking on a mobile phone?

Christchurch’s new Memorial Avenue Gateway Bridge

is open to traffic but we are not finished yet!

There will be speed restrictions and other traffic management on and around the bridge

over the next few months while the project team lay the final road surface and carry out

other work to complete the Russley Road Upgrade.

Please drive with extra care and pay close attention to the signage to ensure you are in

the correct lane to get to your destination. Thanks for your patience and understanding.

Punch costs prop $10,000

• By Rob Kidd

A PROMISING Lincoln

University and Canterbury

rugby player has been ordered

to pay a student $10,000 after a

brawl.

Joel Nikoli Hintz, 21, pleaded

guilty to a charge of injuring by

unlawful act when he appeared

before the Dunedin District

Court last week.

In August, the big front-rower

was named in the Canterbury

squad which successfully

defended the Ranfurly Shield in

two pre-season games against

Wanganui and Mid-Canterbury.

He’s also a former weightlifting

world champion and played for

the Hawkins Trophy winning

Lincoln University side.

But hanging over him during

those matches was the prospect

of a conviction that could limit

his future sporting endeavours.

On April 4, Hintz and friends

went to Dunedin as part of their

course at Lincoln University.

They were socialising at a

student party in Queen St.

The defendant saw two men

wrestling in the backyard of the

property.

‘’Without warning he punched

the victim once in the mouth

with a closed fist,’’ a police

summary said.

Counsel Anne Stevens said her

client had not attacked the man

completely out of the blue, as

court documents suggested.

‘’He genuinely thought he was

helping someone, but he misread

the situation,’’ she said.

Hintz told police he thought

the men were fighting, and as

he tried to separate them, the

victim threw a punch at him to

which he reacted.

However, the injured man

denied that was the case.

IN COURT:

Canterbury

prop Joel

Hintz has

been ordered

to pay

$10,000 after

injuring a man

at a student

party. ​

The victim – an Australian

man who was in the country

studying, and also played rugby

– suffered damage to an incisor

tooth, which caused the tooth

to die.

He required a titanium

implant and a false tooth to be

fitted, Sergeant Chris George

said. The estimated cost of the

dental work was $12,000.

The figure surprised Mrs

Stevens, who had previously

been informed of a smaller sum.

A final cost would only be

known in March next year, the

court heard.

Judge John Macdonald first

indicated the sentencing should

be adjourned for the issue to be

clarified but was later persuaded

to continue.

Mrs Stevens said Hintz had

$5000 available for the victim

but could borrow more.

He would suffer significantly

with a conviction on his record,

she said, through the inevitable

hurdles it would place for

overseas travel. As well as rugby,

Hintz had also tasted success

in weightlifting when he went

to the world championships

in Johannesburg in 2014 as a

teenager.

He blitzed the competition and

set a record in his weight class,

according to reports at the time.

Judge Macdonald acknowledged

the defendant was ‘’a man of

promise’’ and the conviction was

the first blemish on his record.

Hintz was ordered to pay the

victim $10,000 (half now, half in

a month) as well as court costs of

$130. - Otago Daily Times

Darfield High come close

to ultimate frisbee title

• By Andrew King

DARFIELD HIGH finished

second in the inaugural South

Island secondary school ultimate

frisbee championships.

Competing against five other

teams at Centennial Park in

Spreydon, Darfield met Cashmere

in the final of the compeititon

known as the ‘Ultimate

Champs’.

Shirley Boys’ High, Riccarton

High, a combined team and a

second team from Darfield were

also involved in the competition.

Cashmere’s Gordon Forrest

was named the most spirited

player in the compeititon, Riccarton’s

Ben Cruse was the men’s

MVP and Darfield’s Stephanie

McKenzie was the women’s

MVP.

Shirley Boys’ High coach Scott

Edwards also helped coach the

Cashmere side and said it was a

fantastic event and great to grow

the sport.

“In the last two years, the high

school scene has grown a lot.

There were a lot of parents that

came down to watch and all the

players hung around to watch the

final,” he said.

He said with no official tournament

in the South Island, it was

good to get something like this

off the ground to keep up with

their North Island counterparts.

So what is ultimate

frisbee?

•Normally, it is played on a

70m x 50m field with seven

players on each team.

•The goal is to get the

frisbee into the opposition’s

‘end zone’ to score a point.

•The first team to 13 wins.

•Teams can be made up

of both men and women.

•Each game runs for 45min.

•The Ultimate Champs

were played with

only five-aside, so the

field dimensions were

shortened to 50m x 20m,

with 30min pool games

and 45min semis and finals.

SECOND: A

Darfield High

team made

the final of

the inaugural

South Island

secondary

school ultimate

frisbee champs.

SELWYN UNITED will begin

their first season in the mainland

premier league with a new club

badge.

With the club now on the verge

of being New Zealand Football

licensed, they felt it was timely to

revisit how they represent their

philosophy and values.

The new badge design aims to

capture the local environment,

which is represented by the alps

and the Selwyn River, both a part

the previous badge, while simplifying

the colour scheme. The imagery

was retained to represent

the relationship between the club

and local community.

The introduction of the horse is

a nod to the new and recognises

the development of the club

SPORTS

NEW: Selwyn United have replaced their

old club badge (above) with a new design

(right).

New look, new league

for Selwyn football

which is now known as the stallions.

The horse is symbolic of freedom

without restraint, of pace

and beauty, and of the instinctive

and the controlled. The club

felt it captured their football

philosophy which is built around

playing attacking, free-flowing

and passing football.

Selwyn’s premier team won

this year’s Canterbury championship

league to gain promotion

into the MPL for the first time in

the club’s history.

They will also have a chance to

qualify for the newly reinstated

South Island league, which will

feature eight teams – five from

the MPL and three from the

southern premier league.

Weedons move up country cricket table

WEEDONS MOVED into the

top four of the premier one-day

country cricket competition

with a win over Lincoln at

the weekend, while Leeston

Southbridge also took victory

to remain unbeaten after six

rounds.

Lincoln struggled batting first

for the second week running

at Lincoln Domain, this time

against Weedons, which went on

to win the match by two wickets.

Jeremy Benton played well for

46 off 92 balls, and Dave

McClelland chipped in with 25,

but there were no other substantial

contributions and Lincoln

were all out for 126 in the penultimate

over.

Opener James Richards

anchored the Weedons chase

with 38 off 100 balls. But when

Richards was removed by Arthur

Paterson in the 35th over, they

still needed 23 runs to win, with

four wickets in hand.

Batting at No 8, Tom Suyker

came in to strike some lofty balls

and carry Weedons over the line

for a two wicket win.

Leeston-Southbridge maintained

their unbeaten record this

season after clinically dispatching

defending champions Sefton.

Leeston-Southbridge won the

toss at Sefton Domain and opted

to bowl on what was described

as a ‘tennis ball bouncy’, uneven

and slow pitch. The outfield was

also long, making it a good day

to be a bowler.

Sefton started well with consistent

opening pair Lance Taylor

and Tim Harrison putting on 83

runs before Tim Field made the

first breakthrough by removing

Harrison for 27.

The home side then lost

wickets at regular intervals, with

Taylor top-scoring with 53, as

they struggled to be all out for

132 in the 45th over.

Field ended with the tidy

figures of 3-25 and all-rounder

Liam O’Sullivan bowled well

to also be rewarded with three

wickets. In reply, Leeston-

Southbridge lost their openers

early. Batting at No 3, ex-Dutch

international Tim Gruijters

compiled a good partnership

with former Canterbury hockey

representative Matt Ling to get

their side through to the total in

the 41st over.

Darfield-South Malvern picked

up their first win of the season at

Darfield Domain over Oxford-

Rangiora.

The visitors made 174 all out

after being 109/2 before David

Beatty struck twice in the space

of three deliveries to force a

collapse in the Oxford-Rangiora

innings.

Darfield-South Malvern batted

well in reply to secure their first

win, with all of their top-order

firing.

Sean Carston and Simon Edwards

both finished unbeaten as

they steered their team home for

a comfortable eight-wicket win.

Meanwhile, Cheviot continued

its enjoyable return to the

premiership after destroying

Southbrook. Former Southbrook

player Pete Rayner ripped

through his old side taking six

wickets. Cheviot cruised to a

nine-wicket victory.

RED CROSS

Ensuring a safe work place

Learning first aid is not only a part of ensuring a safe

work place, but also an integral part of our engagement with the

wider community. We all learn the necessary skills to ensure that

in times of emergency we are able to assist our work colleagues,

but are we able to take these skills home, into the community or

on to the sports field?

not all work places are the same and the injury risk for each place

can be wide and variable. The office attended by administrators

does not carry the same risk as those people working with heavy

machinery, or perhaps at some distance from a regular ambulance

service. it is therefore essential that you pick the right first aid

course to suit all of your activities – both professional and social.

take, for example, an office worker who does not have a high

risk work environment and whose concern might be to ensure that

they can deal with minor cuts and superficial injuries, or the ability

to perform effective CPr. These skills can be achieved on a course

of eight hours duration and would generally fit into low to medium

risk area. But take this same person on to a sports field either as a

spectator or player when a higher level injury occurs. The eight

hour course covering unit standards 6402 and 6401 (or 26551 and

26552) does not cover head neck and spinal injuries, eye injuries,

hypothermia and poisonings.

The majority of injuries occur outside of the work place, in

fact one in three injuries occurs in the home, making it the most

common place for injuries to happen. new Zealand children

are twice as likely to die through injury as children who live in

australia. They mostly die as a result of motor vehicles accidents

or falls in the home. fatalities from leisure and sport are not far

behind those in the workplace.

The wider 12 hour course teaches the additional unit standard

6400 and provides a wide knowledge base for medium to high risk

environments. This course covers many of the skills required to

deal with the most common injuries, such as falls (which can result

in head, neck and spinal injuries) and dealing with complex scenes

such as motor vehicle accidents.

if you are not sure on the course best suited to your needs, ask

your accredited first aid training provider. They can explain the

course content and give you options that will best suit your needs.

Look beyond the workplace and consider your family and your

location. Check that you have a good quality first aid kit that is

up-to-date with replenished items, and that everyone knows where

it is located.

Real meat

for real pets

Need a Professional

Taking care of your pet includes

feeding them the right food. For cats and

dogs, this means feeding them real meat.

“Puppies, dogs and cats naturally eat

meat so biscuits, which are made from

various grains rather than meat, are no

substitute for the real thing,” advises

Bernie who owns Real Petfood in

Rolleston.

Feeding your pets the right food will

help keep them healthy and looking

good. It is also important not to feed

your cats

and dogs

bones as

they can

splinter,

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

Demand high for quality

affordable housing in Rolleston

A new concept in housing for Rolleston has been

Devon Green where uptake has been high for the

boutique affordable housing built there.

Already a sense of community has formed in the

innovative Devon Green, the initiative of Generation

Homes who have just released the last two of eight

stages.

The success of Devon Green has led to the company

deciding to become involved in further developments

of this kind in Rolleston.

“We’re building on Devon Green’s success where

people can have an affordable home that is attractive

and part of a solid community,” says Evan Beker who

with his wife Nadja, own and operate Generation

Homes Christchurch South.

In creating Devon Green, Generation Homes worked

through a robust urban design process and they will

be observing a similar approach with their sister

developments in two new developments in Branthwaite

and East Maddisons Estate.

At Devon Green, the ‘lucky last 11’ as Evan describes

this final phase, supplement the previous 31 house and

land packages. These premium sections immediately

border or overlook the planned Devon Green park area

on Haymakers Crescent.

Five of the sections are

in the north release with

the other six are part

of the south release,

ranging in size from 260-

380sqm. The houses will

be between 126sqm and

150sqm, making them

ideal for families as well as

people who live alone.

Ranging in price from

$449,000 to $475,000,

these homes are an

extremely attractive

option for first home

buyers, single people,

young families and

those downsizing, not

to mention military

personnel who want a

base in Rolleston.

“The homes at Devon

Green have been

designed to provide a real

sense of spaciousness with efficient use of space and

appointment of features,” says Evan.

All the houses will be single level, open plan living

with two bathrooms (one an ensuite) and three

bedrooms. Most will have a walk-in robe in the master

bedroom. There will also be a mix of garaging from

single to double garaging, as well as single garage with

carport. Each home will have good outdoor living with

sliders from the living area accessing a patio and fully

landscaped garden.

Seven of the homes will be standalone and there

will be two duplexes. All have been architecturally

designed and will be built to Generation Homes’ high

standard, reflecting Devon Green to date. Their features

include up-graded bricks, long-run roofing and full

landscaping.

With everything complete, down to the fencing,

clothesline and letterbox, the hassle of having to

purchase and install these items on moving in is

removed.

To visualise the size and features of Generation

Homes’ Devon Green development visit their show

home in Strauss Drive, which is open 7 days a week

from 12noon-4pm.

The south release will comprise 6 sections.

A sense of community has formed at Devon Green.

Devon Green has been popular with first home buyers.

Gardening

Consider growing cucumbers

• By Henri Ham

I OFTEN hear gardeners

say nothing beats eating

home-grown fruit and

vegetables.

In fact, I say the same thing

myself. And if I had to pick one

plant that this really rings true

for – I would pick cucumber.

The cucumbers we have

grown in the last few seasons

have been crisp, juicy, cool,

delicious and would, no

question, beat store-bought

cucumber by miles any time.

So, if you only plant one

vegetable this season, though

technically a fruit, I strongly

recommend you consider

cucumber. And don’t stop with

just telegraph cucumber (the

long, skinny one most commonly

found in the supermarket),

try growing a selection

of cucumbers. Lebanese has

tender, edible skin with sweet,

mild-tasting flesh.

Short-green is great for

growing in smaller gardens as

it produces a lot of fruit but

only requires one third of the

space of other cucumbers. And

apple looks much like an apple

(opposed to the long look of

a telegraph cucumber) and it

grows really nicely along the

ground.

Once you’ve got your plants,

it’s time to find a place to plant

them. They like a warm, dry

and sunny spot to grow in. And

most varieties will need a bit of

space.

Telegraph and short green

cucumbers will need to either

be staked or grown next to

something they can grow up –

like a trellis. Plant these varieties

around 1m apart so each

plant has its own trellis/area to

spread over.

• By Henri Ham

THERE ARE a couple of plants

where growers regularly report

that they find a little tricky to

grow. Coriander is one. Watermelon

is another. And the

one that always surprises me is

basil.

Basil is such a great plant

to have on hand. And there

are so many different varieites

available to try, I thought this

month I’d share my advice on

how to get the best out of your

basil and move it off that ‘tricky

to grow’ list.

Basil loves the heat. So my

first piece of advice, is look

for the sunniest spot in your

garden and that’s where you

should put your basil.

If the sunniest spot at your

place is in your home (for

example by a kitchen window),

then try growing your basil

there. Basil grows really well

in pots and can easily be kept

inside.

SUCCULENT: Apple

cucumbers will grow along

the ground and are a good

companion plant. Telegraph

cucumbers (right) will need

to be staked.

Apple cucumbers will happily

grow along the ground and are

a good companion plant for

zucchini as they like the same

conditions.

For a regular-sized bundle

with three seedlings you’ll

need an area around 2m x 2m

and each seedling should be

planted about 1m apart. I like

to imagine I’m planting them

in the shape of a triangle and

each seedling goes on one of

the points of the triangle, this

way the plants are grouped

together but have enough room

to spread out.

Dig in some compost or leftover

potting mix into the soil

to ensure its friable (breaks up)

before you plant.

To encourage fruiting it’s

a good idea to plant your

cucumbers (and zucchini) near

some bee-attracting plants

like lavender or borage. Doing

this will help ensure the bees

pollinate your plants and as a

consequence the fruit develop.

If the plants aren’t pollinated

properly the flowers will fall

off and no fruit will develop.

If you’d like to be really sure

HEAT: Basil grows well in sunny conditions. For a different

taste try a cinnamon variety (right).

When you’ve found the right does, just pick off any developing

flower heads to encourage it

spot to grow it just dig a little

hole and plant. If you’re growing

it in a pot I recommend us-

Next, basil needs water but

to stick to leaf growing.

ing a good, general potting mix. its very important you don’t

My second tip for successful

basil is, pick it regularly. If you plant it and then water it

over-water it. Water it when

you don’t pick it quick enough regularly to encourage lots of

it might start to go to seed. If it leaf growth. But, and here’s the

they’re pollinated, try touching

the pollen on each plant with

a paintbrush – this will spread

the pollen from one flower to

the next.

I was once told by someone

that you could do the same

with an electric toothbrush,

minus the toothbrush head.

I’m yet to try this approach but

would love to hear from anyone

who has.

In around 10 to 12 weeks you

should be able to enjoy the cool

and juicy taste of home-grown

cucumbers.

Many different varieties of basil

important advice, let it dry out

between waterings – don’t let it

stay wet.

And my last piece of advice

is, don’t just stick to sweet basil

– try growing cinnamon, Thai,

lemon, or one of the other varieties.

A good way of sampling

the other varieties is by getting

a mixed basil bundle which will

include a selection of some of

the different basil varieties.

If you do all of the above, basil

will quickly move to your list

of favourite, low-maintenance,

easy-care plants.

Tomato

Time

Show Weekend is a great weekend to get your

tomato plants in. This is typically when the

weather settles (despite the winter-like moment

last week) enough to not worry too much about

the cooler weather affecting your plants. Here

are some handy tips to get you started.

Preparation

Getting the ground-work right is an important part of any planting you are

doing. It is recommended that you don’t plant new tomatoes in the same spot

as last season, or where potatoes were, as there can still be diseases in the

soil that can affect the growth of your new plant. Prepare existing beds with

Organic Compost and Sheep Pellets, and Intelligro Tomato Fertiliser. You can

then add our South-Hort Tomato Mix to the top layer to enhance the growing

environment. If you are planting in pots, use the Tomato Mix straight into the

pot, no need to add fertiliser prior to planting.

Planting

Planting in garden beds

Once you have chosen your spot, place

your stakes to help give the plants support

as they grow and produce fruit. By doing

this step now, you won’t damage the

roots once you have planted.

• Dig a hole twice the size of the root

ball of your tomato plant.

• Loosen the root ball and gently place

it in the centre.

• Fill the hole with the remaining mix, and press gently around the base of

the plant.

• Tie the tomato to the stake using plant ties. If you haven’t got any of these,

old pantyhose work a treat too. Once tied, give the plant a good watering.

Planting in pots and containers

• Choose a pot or container that is at least 35L.

• Partly fill (roughly ¾) the pot with South-Hort Tomato Mix.

Put the stake in ready for tying once planted.

• Loosen the root ball of the plant and place in the centre of

the pot.

• Fill the rest of the pot with the remaining mix, and press

gently around the base of the plant.

• Tie the tomato to the stake using plant ties (or pantyhose).

Once tied, give the plant a good watering.

Fertilising and Watering

Tomatoes need a lot of nutrients to sustain

healthy growth and produce a good crop. The

more nutrients available, the better the plant

will grow. Intelligro Tomato Fertiliser is designed

specifically for the nutritional requirements of

these plants to give you a bountiful crop.

Fertilising Tomatoes in

garden beds

Once the beds are established and the plants are in, apply 100 grams per

square metre every 4 weeks during the growing season. Mix well and water

after application. Keep up a consistent watering routine. They’ll need plenty of

water and nutrients to produce their fruit.

Fertilising Tomatoes in pots and containers

Apply Intelligro Top Dressing Fertiliser at a rate of 1-2 grams per litre of pot

size. Apply around the base of the plant (not touching the plant) and water in

well. Re-apply every 4 weeks during the growing season. Establish a regular

watering plan, a good long soak every few days should do it. Keep an eye on it,

you don’t want the plant to dry out!

Send it through to enter our fortnightly

Q&A draw for a $50 Intelligro voucher!

All questions will be answered, and

then entered into the draw to win

the prize. The winner will also have

their question published in the

Keep planting vegetables for summer

Fire rages, homes at risk

NOVEMBER IS a great month to

be working out in the garden.

There are masses of new growth

on most plants, new season

vegetables are growing at a fast

rate, summer flowering annuals

are bursting into bloom – it’s all

happening.

Vegetables to be planted this

month are beans (dwarf and runner),

beetroot, cabbage, celery,

corn, cucumber, courgettes, lettuce,

pumpkin, radish, tomatoes

and kumara. Water all developing

vegetable plants regularly but not

excessively.

Ensure you stake and tie up

tomatoes and remove lateral

growth. Apply side dressings of

fertiliser, especially to the “gross”

feeders such as sweetcorn.

Flowering annuals should now

have outstanding displays of

colour. Summer annuals to plant

include; alyssum, ageratum, aster,

candytuft, cornflower, cosmos,

livingstone daisy, marigold,

nemesia, phlox, petunias, salvias,

strawflower and zinnias.

Dead head (the removal

of finished flowers) regularly

throughout the growing season to

encourage continuous blooming.

This is one of the most rewarding

months for cultivating

roses. Plants are often covered in

TIDY: Try to think outside the box when planting a hedge. Right – It’s time to break out the tools and harvest some early summer

vegetables.

wonderful blooms and are usually

disease free. Remove flowers once

they have finished to encourage

further flowering. Fertilise with

fertiliser every five to six weeks

throughout spring/early summer.

This will encourage strong

growth and full blooms. If you

notice signs of disease or pests –

spray immediately. Remember

that once you commit to spraying,

you must follow a regular

regime throughout the season.

Hedges can now be trimmed

(where required) after the initial

spring growth spurt. Continue to

trim on the ‘little and often’ principal

as this will help encourage a

strong dense form.

When planting a hedge, try

and think a little outside the box

and investigate alternative plants

to create an edible or flowering

hedge.

Ensure you do not plant trees

that grow to 8m if you only require

a 2m hedge.

Lawns can be fertilised in

November to help create a lush

dense lawn.

This is also possibly the last

month to sow a substantial

new lawn or patch up an existing

lawn before the dry weather

arrives.

Choose grass varieties that are

suitable for your site or a mixture

of grasses which are useful in

creating an all year-round lawn.

Ornamental trees and shrubs

can be fertilised with general

garden fertiliser, coinciding with

active late spring/early summer

growth.

Repeat applications every six

weeks until the hot dry summer

months. Further applications

of mulch can be made now and

throughout summer.

The herb garden should be

thriving in November; the

warmer the temperatures, the better

herbs grow.

You may need to ‘thin out’

some of your herbs as they can

grow rather vigorously and

‘swamp’ out neighbouring herbs.

Continue to trim, even if not

eaten as this encourages fresh

new growth.
