Stop Press! Quick planting session tomorrow Sat 20 June 2015

Aponogeton angustifolius - flower

 

I have just received four tub loads of Waterbloemmetjies (Aponogeton distachyos) to plant out at Rondevlei. Is there anyone up for a short 1 hour planting session tomorrow morning between 09:00 – 10:00? I need to get the plants into the water ASAP. There is no digging involved so it is just anchoring them into the bottom of the Leopard toad pond at the Bridge Hide in Rondevlei. You don’t need to bring a spade; easily done but gum boots are preferable …

These waterbloemmetjies are water plants and the very same that feature in the folk song:
“Daar is waterbloemmtjies in die Boland,
daar is waterbloemmtjies in die Kaap”.
