GLOVES and spades came out yesterday when a new planting scheme started to take root. Indigenous plants - including pigface, running postman and pale flax-lily - found a new space to grow on a pocket of land on Penola Road in Mount Gambier’s north. Volunteers and staff from the Mount Gambier City Council and Natural Resources South East tackled the project to replace unsightly weeds. The newly-planted species were raised by Eight Mile Creek business Mimosa Farm Trees and the Nature Glenelg Trust Community Nursery. The council’s environmental sustainability officer Aaron Izzard said groundcovers and shrubs had been chosen rather than trees. Plants were selected for their hardiness, aesthetics, conservation status and usability. “Indigenous plants can make great landscaping gardens, with the added benefi ts of being suited to the local climate and conditions, usually requiring less water and attention,” he said. “We’re looking forward to the site flourishing into a low-maintenance indigenous garden that is both visually appealing and practical.” The council hopes the site will serve as a demonstration garden and anticipates that the rare and threatened species in particular will become a convenient source of seed for the community nursery in future. The Penola Road project is part of a broader civic planting plan with an increased focus on the use of indigenous and edible plants in parks and gardens. Community involvement is another key focus of the plan and later this month the council will announce the successful winner of a campaign to supply and plant up to $250 worth of fruit and nut trees in council reserves. “We received some really strong applications from groups of neighbours who have not only come up with their own list of preferred plants, but have agreed to look after them together,” Mr Izzard said. “We see this initiative as a simple way to get to know your neighbours and help build a stronger and more connected community.” Rock and roll artist to visit Mount Gambier Rebates available - conditions apply They really work!
