It was a privilege to be at the opening of the next stage of the Anglesea Primary School’s indigenous garden project.

It was clear after the first stage that children very much enjoyed creating structures within the garden. This led to the Parents Club raising money to design and landscape an ‘imagination garden’ including a beautiful commemorative space for Pixie Fitzgerald, a young child who died three years ago. The whole garden is beautiful and the children’s daily additions exciting. It is well worth a visit.

ANGAIR supplied another 1500 plants with Nick Day’s help. The gratitude of the school community to ANGAIR for its contribution was very obvious. Our role now will include some educational work and maintenance. ANGAIR volunteers should be proud of their part in this project.

Weed of the month

Freesia

Freesia

Freesia refracta and Freesia alba X F. leichtlinii are declared weeds in the Surf Coast Shire because they spread easily and threaten to invade bushland. Freesias are perennial herbs that die back in summer and produce new foliage in winter. The highly fragrant trumpet-shaped flowers appearing in spring are white to cream and pink with yellow markings, shaded purple on outer surface. Each plant has at least two corms, one below the other, thus requiring deep digging to remove them.

More details about how to control this weed can be found in the archive of Weeds of the Month.
