Moroccans Call Bakery ‘Extremist’ for Refusing to Sell New Year Cakes

Rabat – The topic of whether it is “haram” (forbidden in Islam) to celebrate the Gregorian New Year and sell or buy New Year cakes, is now the subject of debates on social media after a photo of a bakery announcing that it will not sell New Year cakes went viral.Many social media users shared Rayhana Bakery’s sign which reads: “There are no New Year pastries.” Internet users criticized the owner of the bakery located in Ait Melloul, near Agadir, and called him an “extremist.”Adding to the controversy, Rayhana Bakery wrote a post on its Facebook page: “We do not celebrate the Christian holidays.” The bakery’s choice not to sell Christmas and New Year cakes has prompted many Moroccans to shun the owner and call him “backward,” “intolerant,” and even describe him as an extremist who holds “ISIS” beliefs.Responding to the comments, the owner wrote on his Facebook page on Monday, “Due to the harsh attacks which followed my announcing that there will be no pastries at the end of the year, and given the serious accusations by people who called me an ISIS member and humiliated me, I have decided to file complaints against them.”Read Also: Moroccan Gas Distributors Promise to Start New Year with StrikesThe bakery shop owner pointed out that people who accused him of being an ISIS member have at the same time provoked a sensitive issue that concerns national security.Is it haram?In light of the controversy, many people brought up the subject of what is “haram” and what is not while also addressing the importance of coexistence between religions in Morocco.Some commenters seemed to agree that associating or “trading” with people from other religions, especially Christians and Jews, did not mean “celebrating their religious feasts,” referring to a Qur’anic passage.Read Also: New Year’s Eve: Morocco Among Best Destinations for AlgeriansThe Surah al-Mumtahanah (60:8) reads: “Allah does not forbid you (as regards) the ones who have not fought you on account of the religion and have not driven you out of your residences that you should be benign to them and be equitable towards them; surely Allah loves the equitable.”Commenters also pointed out that the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) shared peaceful relations with people from other Abrahamic religions. Muslims in Morocco have lived peacefully alongside Jews and Christians for years. read more

Regulator approves LNG licence for Saint John NB export terminal

by The Canadian Press Posted Sep 10, 2015 2:22 pm MDT Last Updated Sep 10, 2015 at 3:20 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email SAINT JOHN, N.B. – The National Energy Board has approved a Spanish energy company’s request for a 25-year licence to export up to eight billion cubic metres of liquefied natural gas annually from a proposed terminal in Saint John, N.B.The regulator said in the Sept. 3 decision it has also granted Saint John LNG Development Co. Ltd., a subsidiary of Repsol S.A., a licence to import an equal amount of gas from the United States.The regulator says advances in drilling and hydraulic fracturing have greatly increased estimates of recoverable resources in North America and the gas exports would be surplus to Canadian needs.Heritage Gas, the distributor of natural gas in Nova Scotia, submitted a letter in May to the regulator seeking assurances the company would have adequate access to the sole pipeline into Atlantic Canada if export licences are approved.The decision says Repsol told the regulator it wouldn’t use the Canadian portion of the Maritimes and Northeast Pipeline, and it also notes Repsol’s commenting the pipeline capacity would be a matter for a separate hearing.The board concluded Heritage Gas’s concerns on pipeline capacity was outside the board’s jurisdiction when it is considering a gas export application.

UN migration agency launches 60 million appeal for droughthit East Horn of

“In the coming months, we are likely to see many more needing humanitarian aid and being displaced, due to the poor rains,” said Jeffrey Labovitz, Regional Director for East and Horn of Africa at the UN International Organization for Migration (IOM).Through the appeal, IOM said that it intends to target 2 million of the most vulnerable drought-affected people through December of this year in Djibouti, Ethiopia, Kenya and Somalia.The drought is fuelling migration between these borders, particularly from Somalia, and could impact how the people who are moving and the people who are receiving them recover from the drought. “It is estimated that cross border movements may increase significantly with the predicted poor harvest as a result of below average rains during March-May and the humanitarian response is not scaled up to meet the needs of affected populations,” according to the appeal. The $60,665,000 aid would include a combination of lifesaving and early recover interventions, as well as build long-term capacity to recover. These include shelter, protection, food, water and sanitation.Mr. Labovitz stressed that due to the “impressive efforts” from local and international actors, the drought has not yet led to a famine as recorded in 2011, but “there is need for sustained funding and international support to mitigate what could still deteriorate.”The current drought has already shown to be different from that in 2011, which was concentrated in South Central Somalia. This year, it is affecting more parts of the country, including the north-eastern and the Somaliland regions, with a higher total number of people at risk.The drought is affecting the region’s main source of water – the river basins. Over the past six months, severe drought conditions have contributed to the displacement of more than 700,000 people within Somalia alone. read more

King Cove Road Advocates Sue Federal Officials

first_imgTribes, local governments, and residents from the King Cove region are suing federal officials for denying them the right to build a road through a wildlife refuge.Download AudioKing Cove residents have been arguing for years that the road would be the easiest, safest way to get to emergency medevac flights at the all-weather airstrip in Cold Bay.They didn’t stop arguing when Interior Secretary Sally Jewell decided not to allow a land swap in the Izembek National Wildlife Refuge in December. That had been the best hope for getting a road built.“We’re at the point where we can’t let this go, and we’ve got to keep moving forward,” says Della Trumble.She’s a spokeswoman for the King Cove Corporation and the Agdaagux Tribe. They are two of the plaintiffs in a lawsuit that was filed Wednesday in United States District Court in Anchorage.The complaint alleges that the Interior Department’s decision to reject the road violates the Constitution and several federal laws, including the National Environmental Policy Act and the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act.This isn’t the first legal action by advocates of the road. In April, the State of Alaska announced that it may sue the federal government for a right-of-way through the refuge based on historic use.But Della Trumble says that’s a separate case.“They are related in some ways, but they are not the same,” Trumble says. “Part of this lawsuit is basically that saying that the EIS that was submitted to the Secretary is inaccurate.”Trumble is referring to the environmental impact statement, which was completed in 2013. The Interior Secretary used that document to make her final determination on the land swap.Trumble argues that the EIS didn’t provide a full picture.“The EIS technically falls heavily on the side of the US Fish and Wildlife in regard to the wilderness,” Trumble says. “It does not take into consideration the human factor and the health and safety issues that revolve around it, as directed by Congress.”This spring, Trumble and several other King Cove officials traveledto Washington, DC. They wanted to lobby the Interior Secretary to reconsider her decision. In return, Secretary Jewell requested a report, explaining why a road is the only viable option to get from King Cove to Cold Bay during medical emergencies.Trumble says the King Cove group turned it in almost two months ago.“But we have not had any communication or response from [Jewell] to this point,” Trumble says.That’s not acceptable, according to Robert Dillon. He’s a spokesman for Senator Lisa Murkowski, who has criticized the Obama administration for its handling of the road.“They want the people of King Cove to go away and stop bothering them,” Dillon says. “And that’s the most important thing – is to keep reminding them that this issue remains alive and that the people of King Cove are not going to go away until their children and families are safe.”A representative for the Interior Department declined to comment because of the pending litigation.The defendants on the lawsuit include Interior Secretary Jewell, along with the assistant secretaries for Indian Affairs and Fish, Wildlife and Parks. Employees of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Izembek refuge are also listed.last_img read more

Test results point to achievement gaps among Sitkas students

first_imgSitka co-assistant superintendent Sarah Ferrency explains the methodology behind district testing. Rationalizing the dip in scores following the adoption of new standards in 2012 she said, “Let’s be realistic. Kids on average don’t change a lot year to year. The kids’ learning has stayed roughly the same, but the way the test measured it has changed.” (KCAW photo/Robert Woolsey)Based on the latest test scores, Sitka’s school district is performing above the state average — but the numbers are not necessarily something to brag about. Instead, Sitka’s educators hope the new test results help them focus their efforts on under-performing populations in the schools.Listen nowDepending on the subject area, Sitka’s rates of proficiency are “pretty low” according to assistant superintendent Sarah Ferrency — running from around 33 to over 60-percent.In general, Sitka students are performing at far higher levels in Science (67-percent) than they are in Math (37-percent). In English Language Arts, just over half — about 55-percent — are proficient.Ferrency told the Sitka School Board during a work session earlier this month that none of this was unexpected.“The standards that this assessment is assessing were only adopted five years ago,” Ferrency said. “It took districts a couple of years to get their new instruction in place. In a lot of ways this new set of standards is more rigorous than the old standards, so it’s not super-surprising that our students may not be proficient yet, because they haven’t had a lifetime of instruction in these new, more rigorous standards.”It has been a rocky road for testing in Alaska since the adoption of new standards in 2012 — many of which were aligned with a national effort to improve curriculum called “Common Core.” Sitka students fared pretty well under the old testing regime — called the Standards Based Assessment, or SBA. Following the adoption of the new standards came the new test, the Alaska Measures of Progress — or AMP — which was eventually cancelled after an internet connection was severed during the middle of testing in the spring of 2016, causing catastrophic delays.The new, new test is called PEAKS, or the Performance Evaluation for Alaska’s Schools.Both Sitka’s AMP results — and now its PEAKS results — are far lower than the SBA. Nevertheless, Ferrency said that Sitka’s kids are not going downhill.“Let’s be realistic. Kids on average don’t change a lot year to year,” Ferrency said. “The kids’ learning has stayed roughly the same, but the way the test measured it has changed.”School board member Dionne Brady-Howard argued that education advocates should carry a clear message to the Alaska legislature next January.“That our test data is changing not because they’re not getting enough for their money spent, but because nobody’s been able to land on a consistent set of standards or testing that has spanned these students’ careers, to consistently figure out where they are,” Brady-Howard said.But even though the standardized test results don’t fully address the quality of education in the district, Ferrency said they had value — primarily in identifying troubled population groups in schools.According to Ferrency, the biggest at-risk group in Sitka’s schools is not who you might think it is.“About 35-40 percent of Sitka’s students qualify for free or reduced lunch, and that number’s been going up in recent years,” Ferrency said. “I think it’s of note that economically-disadvantaged students are actually our largest subgroup, of all the groups that we look at.”The other large subgroup performing below its peers has been of concern for years: Alaska Natives. Ferrency explained that the best way to improve overall district performance was to put energy into economically-disadvantaged students and Alaska Natives.“These two are the areas we want to focus on. I don’t want to call it low-hanging fruit, because it’s not easy,” Ferrency said. “But these are the areas where we’ll have the most impact. It’s where the highest numbers of students are affected, and where the achievement gaps are largest.”PEAKS, Ferrency pointed out, is designed to test only whether students meet or exceed a certain standard. It doesn’t point out shortcomings in knowledge or content. For that, it turns out, you need more than data. You need teachers.last_img read more

BrickandMortar Retailers Must Innovate to Flourish in a Digital World

first_img 5 min read Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right. Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. August 26, 2016 Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals Many industry experts have predicted the death of brick-and-mortar retail for years now. However, brick-and-mortar is nowhere close to dying — rather, it’s getting a complete overhaul, putting the pressure on marketers to think of creative ways for their brands to stand out from the competition’s.Related: Is Amazon’s First Brick-and-Mortar Bookstore the Future of Retail?Davide Savenije, the senior editor at Industry Dive, has written that, “The biggest drivers of retail’s transformation are the emergence of the internet and mobile technology, the rise in millennial spending power, the impact of globalization and the empowerment of the consumer.” Because of these factors, building a bridge between the digital and physical worlds is one of the biggest challenges brick and mortar retailers face.Engaging with consumers requires making positive and personalized impressions, which means brands need to look for new disruptive and innovative ways to grab the attention of consumers.However, as the world becomes increasingly connected, the desire to disconnect from digital devices and reconnect face-to-face is also increasing. This desire for in-person connection applies not only to people, but to the products and services brands sell. Proof? According to the U.S. Census, 92 percent of purchases continue to be made off-line. And, contrary to popular belief, as many as 82 percent of millennials say on surveys that they prefer to shop in a brick-and-mortar store.It’s clear, then, that retail shoppers thrive on experience — so, in order for brick and mortar to survive, it has to adapt to the evolving needs and desires of its customers. And, because the average American is exposed to well over 1,000 marketing messages each day, physical retailers have to be strategic, even disruptive, in order to cut through the advertising clutter.Related: Are Digital Retail Models Taking Over Brick and Mortar?With the evolution of digital marketing performance-based metrics, marketers are empowered to continually optimize campaigns through the establishment of key performance indicators (KPIs) in an attempt to measure return. While retail in-store digital signage solutions such as video walls, kiosks and traditional digital displays have become increasingly prevalent, for the storefront itself, the adoption of street-facing digital signage remains low.This is due to lack of innovation in terms of what the storefront offers. But that’s about to change: Though retail brands will continue to invest and allocate additional marketing budget toward their online marketing efforts, we’ll soon see a shift toward the storefront as new technologies emerge, bringing new life and energy to the storefront.In May 2016, research firm CB Insights named 72 startups transforming brick and mortar retail, by utilizing innovations in digital technologies. Interestingly enough, however, of the high-level categories listed, the physical storefront was left out.Still, as the saying goes, if you can spot the gap, you can fill the void. In the coming months, more and more brands will begin transforming their storefronts through the abundance of newly emerging storefront display technology. Here are a few companies we’ve seen innovating retail and further helping brick and mortar brands compete in a digital world:Window Agent, which serves real estate agents, has developed a touch-screen and street-facing TV display containing virtual tours and interactive maps. Pedestrians can engage with the display, to learn more details about local listings. Agents using the technology are able to update their listings based on the analytics they receive from these same passersby.NEXNOVO recently introduced a line of semi-transparent, LED displays called “Glass Wall LED Screens,” which can be hung in just about any storefront window to engage street-facing consumers.ThinkSign recently launched indoor and outdoor LED window display units engineered for 24/7 operation through its electronic messaging center, allowing brands to update their signs in real time.Glass-Media, our company, empowers brands to digitize street-facing glass through its cloud-connected, projection-based PoP platform, infused with robust data analytic capabilities. Brands can update their PoP (an integrated circuit packaging technology) across their portfolio without relying on employees or lengthy production cycles.Through the unique solutions being offered by companies that recognize the gap in storefront digital display, brands can engage street-level passersby in a whole new way: They can bring digital-marketing strategies to a place (literally) where it’s never been before.This retail shakeup may come as a surprise to some. But, fortunately, both innovative corporations and startups alike that are focused on retail technology are working tirelessly to both reshape and empower brick-and-mortar brands to compete in a digital world.Related: The Modern Storefront: What Instagram Could Mean For Your BusinessAs a result, it’s not a question of choosing either ecommerce or brick and mortar; it’s a matter of how to use both simultaneously, seamlessly blending “clicks with bricks.” Register Now »last_img read more

Deporting 600 migrants back to Africa could be expensive and impossible

first_imgRelated posts:Solís touts Costa Rica’s treatment of migrants, refugees Cuban migrants storm Costa Rica-Panama border demanding to pass African migrants on honor system as Costa Rican officials search for solutions Migrants flowing through is likely Costa Rica’s new normal, minister says Costa Rica is getting tough-ish on the some 600, mostly African migrants camped out on its southern border in Paso Canoas. The government announced over the weekend that it had persuaded four families and one pregnant woman to move into a migrant youth and family center in nearby Buenos Aires — despite the protests of some men in the group who want Costa Rica to let them pass through the country on their journey to the U.S.Communications Minister Mauricio Herrera said at a Saturday news conference that the government’s principal concern was for the welfare of the approximately 25 children and 18 pregnant migrant woman in Paso Canoas, some of whom have been sleeping on the street or in otherwise substandard conditions.But the government has also made clear that it has no intention of cutting a deal with the undocumented migrants to either let them pass through the country, or to stay here, unless they have a valid asylum claim.Vice Minister of the Interior Carmen Muñoz said Saturday that of the approximately 200 requests for asylum that the government has received since Semana Santa, none have been granted. She said most of the requests were rejected because applicants made it clear that their intention was to move on to the U.S., not stay in Costa Rica.The officials said they would continue their efforts to coax more migrants to either move to the family center, or, for adults traveling without children, to a processing center set up in Paso Canoas away from the vehicle border crossing.But Herrera indicated that patience was running thin. “We’ve told them that we’re not going to tolerate them being there much longer,” he said.Herrera said the government was trying to maintain a dialogue with the migrants, “but this window won’t be open much longer.”He said that when and if security forces ultimately have to tell migrants to leave, if they don’t comply, “they’ll stop being irregular migrants and become people in conflict with the law.”No way forwardBesides the group of African and other migrants from beyond the continent, an even larger group of Cubans is marooned in Paso Canoas, a town that straddles the Costa Rica-Panama border. After weeks of a hot-potato approach to the migrants, the turbulent situation has settled for the moment with the Africans mostly on the Costa Rican side of the border and the Cubans mostly on the Panamanian side.With neither country willing to accept the migrants and Costa Rica unwilling to let them pass, the normal next step for most of the migrants in Costa Rica would be deportation, according to Immigration Administration officials.But finding a country willing to accept them could be a herculean task, according to Demetrios Papademetriou, president emeritus of the Washington, D.C.-based Migration Policy Institute, a think tank. Papademetriou told The Tico Times that similar efforts are “next to impossible” for European countries or the United States, and “impossible” for smaller ones like Costa Rica.Many of Costa Rica’s so-called “extracontinental” migrants lack identification, and home countries are often unwilling to accept their own citizens without ID, complicating attempts to repatriate them, Papademetriou said.If they cannot be sent back to their country of origin, the Foreign Ministry is tasked with identifying a so-called “third country” that will accept them. In that case, Costa Rica would provide documentation during the deportation process for those without formal identification.No country has yet said publicly that it would accept the African migrants.Papademetriou said he was not surprised. More than 100 undocumented migrants from African countries were detained earlier this week at checkpoints along Costa Rica’s southern border with Panama near Paso Canoas. (Courtesy of MSP)High price to deportAccording to Costa Rican law, deportees are supposed to be sent back to their country of origin or to the last country they legally entered. But even this basic information has remained elusive, Deputy Foreign Minister Alejandro Solano said in an email to The Tico Times. Often, migrants from outside the Americas do not speak Spanish or English and without documentation or passports, there is no clear answer as to where the migrants should be sent.Papademetriou from the Migration Policy Institute said migrants will sometimes destroy their identification to make it harder for a country to send them back. Even when a migrant’s home country is determined, that country could “play dumb,” Papademetriou said, and refuse to accept the person.If deportation is a possibility, it’s expensive, especially for small countries like Costa Rica. In 2013 the government deported the largest number of people in the last five years, spending $259,490 to deport 1,554 migrants back to countries like Iraq, Nigeria, Ghana, the Philippines and many others.Considering that the U.S. is the stated destination of many of these migrants, Papademetriou said he imagined the Costa Rican government would request funds from the U.S. government to contribute to the deportation effort.But the cost of deporting so many migrants goes beyond airfare. Papademetriou said Costa Rica would have to spend significant diplomatic, political and moral capital to find a country willing to accept the migrants. Many of their home countries do not have embassies or consulates in Central America or strong relations with the region, adding to the diplomatic heavy-lifting required of Costa Rica.False hopesMigrants in Paso Canoas are also likely getting mixed messages about their potential to continue on their journey, Papademetriou said. Migrants share information with those following behind, and the decision to issue nearly 8,000 temporary transit vistas to Cubans in November and December would not go unnoticed, he said.The African migrants, like the Cubans, are reportedly traveling to the United States. But unlike the Cubans, who enjoy special immigration privileges in the U.S., these extracontinental migrants would likely be turned away at the border.When migrants from the Democratic Republic of Congo or Nepal, for example, see Cuban migrants getting temporary transit visas, they may not fully understand the political dynamics in the U.S. that make an airlift possible for some while others are marked for deportation.Khadka Krishna Bahadur, a 24-year-old Nepalese migrant whom The Tico Times spoke with in Paso Canoas last November, was one of them. He was traveling illegally with a group of 40 of his countrymen and was flummoxed by why the Cubans could pass and they could not. “We just want what the Cubans are getting,” he said.Papademetriou said, “Migrants today simultaneously have too much and too little information.” African migrants in Paso Canoas. Álvaro Sánchez/The Tico TimesAn uncertain routeNational media, including The Tico Times, has reported stories of migrants from Africa who said they crossed the width and breadth of South America to reach Costa Rica on their way to the U.S. But Papademetriou said he has doubts about these claims.“A family with small children does not cross South America on foot in 30 or 40 days,” Papademetriou said. “To me that screams organization, organization, organization.”The Costa Rican government might agree. President Luis Guillermo Solís and many cabinet members have said that criminal human smuggling networks are the main beneficiaries of these waves of illegal immigration.Papademetriou suggested that the reason why other countries along the supposed path have not seen the same migrant crises that Costa Rica and Panama have is because the migrants were never there. Instead, he suggested that some African migrants might have arrived directly to Panama from their port of origin instead of through Brazil or other South American countries.Papademetriou said migrants might tell stories that exaggerate their journey in hopes of getting favorable treatment.“We would all do the same thing if we were in their situation,” he said.Regardless of how they reached Costa Rica, the government has tried to encourage some migrants to move into a temporary care facility. (The government has taken pains to emphasize that no shelters are being opened, an attempt to quash any hopes of repeating the months-long stay of 8,000 Cubans recently airlifted out of the country.)The Solís administration tried last Thursday to start moving families and pregnant women to a care facility in Buenos Aires, Puntarenas with room for 120 people, but the migrants refused to go, according to Vice Minister of the Interior Muñoz.Muñoz said the Costa Rican government is obligated to make sure vulnerable groups have access to humane living conditions, but said it would not forcibly relocate them.The pressure to find humane conditions for vulnerable migrants is mounting. Costa Rica’s rainy season has already gotten underway in the southern Pacific region, where Paso Canoas is located. Muñoz said the majority of the migrants were in hotels around Paso Canoas but that a group of roughly 100 was protesting and camped out by the immigration offices.Others aren’t waiting for deportation. Thursday, the Public Security Ministry announced that it had detained four Costa Rican migrant smugglers late Wednesday evening outside Golfito, Puntarenas with a group of 18 Cubans and five Africans.

Bigger is not always better for tourism

first_imgThe economic importance to a region is not determined by the by the size of its tourism industry, according to a Tourism Research Australia report.An Economic Importance of Tourism in Australia’s Regions report found that expenditure played a large role to the endurance of regional destinations across Australia and any changes that affect the wider tourism industry is likely have a deeper impact to those regions.  Among the areas with highest tourism economic importance is Central Northern Territory with 24.8 percent, $411 million of its economy coming from tourism expenditure.Phillip Island was second highest with tourism expenditure making up 18.7 percent of its economy followed by Whitsundays which depends on the 17.7 percent contribution, Snowy Mountains and Tasmania’s West Coast. Surveying the results, Australian Tourism Export Council (ATEC) managing director Felicia Mariani has called for governments to “improve infrastructure and connectivity to ensure the tourist dollar can easily connect with these areas”.Ms Mariani added that with major cities across Australia taking up the majority of tourism expenditure of 47 percent, the focus needs to shift to developing regional experiences to drive tourism into those regions. “It is vital we develop regional tourism plans to create real and lasting benefits for regional operators, allowing them to leverage the excess demand in our major cities for the benefit of regional areas,” she said. “Creating new, high quality tourism experiences in regional areas is critical to ensuring both international and domestic tourists are enticed to look further and spread the tourism dollar widely across the country.” Source = e-Travel Blackboard: N.Jlast_img read more

Gardeners struggle to live for the day

first_imgBy Patricia JordanAs one hears of relatives and acquaintances passing, the catch-phrase around nowadays ‘Live for the Day’ comes to mind. Unfortunately, we gardeners can’t adopt that attitude, as we are always looking ahead and planning the garden for the season yet to come. Autumn, Fall, Herbst or Harvest – whatever you call it, the season of fruits and mellow fruitfulness is here again. In many parts of the northern hemisphere as daylight hours become shorter and night temperatures start to drop, leaves begin to change colour and the first winds and heavy rains of autumn will cause them to flutter down and rest in a thick rusty-golden carpet on the ground below.With cooling temperatures here and hopefully some rain in the weeks ahead, we can look forward to planting spring flowering bulbs and some winter veggies. I always maintain that October is the start of the gardening year here in Cyprus. New green growth appears on stems that had seemed to be dead and hard to the touch, and tiny shoots appear from the dry soil with the promise of flowers to come. Seedlings from annual plants like cerinthe and nigella, which dropped their seeds last spring, may start to show in your borders. The plants from these seeds, which have already acclimatised to the growing conditions here, will be more resilient to the vagaries of the winter weather and flower much earlier in springtime than seeds sown now, which perhaps were bought from a local garden centre. With that in mind, give the seeds in the packets a brief winter in your fridge before sowing. You will notice a big difference in germination. Molucella laevis, commonly known as ‘Bells of Ireland’ is a particular plant in mind here, and even though it is a native of Turkey and Syria, it still needs that little extra chill.Pyracantha bushes will be full of colour now, a result of the abundant flowers in spring. I am always being asked when to prune this plant and it is really up to you to decide. In theory, you should cut back pyracantha immediately after it has finished flowering in spring, removing all the old shoots to encourage new growth for the following spring. If you don’t do this it can get seriously out of hand. However, if you prune then, you won’t have any glorious berries for the birds to feast on in October. Spring or autumn pruning? You have to make that decision yourself!WHAT TO DO IN THE GARDEN THIS MONTH Make sure that the soil in your veggie beds is dug over and include any home-made compost to enrich it. Choose your plugs with care – don’t buy any that have dried up on the garden centre benches or are very leggy. Select compact plugs even if they are on the small side. Before you plant them ensure that the soil is moist. If you like to grow broad beans soak the seeds overnight and plant them directly into the soil or into small pots, whichever you prefer. Remember to leave a good space between the rows as they will quickly grow and may need staking later on. Watch out for Cabbage White Butterflies which will alight on your brassicas (cabbage family) and lay their eggs on the leaves. The caterpillars that emerge will have voracious appetites and your greens will be in tatters!Start to trim the burned leaves on bushes and hedges as new growth appears. Once the heavy seed pods of Caesalpinia gilliesii have been removed, prune back down the stem and always water well after any drastic action. This is the time of year to split any over-large herbaceous plants (those that come up every year) and get rid of any dying bits in the centre. This way you always have the freshest part of the plant around. While you do this, also take off any dried stems that may injure you during the winter. However, leave planting new trees and big shrubs for a while yet until the ground is thoroughly wet.There is a weather window here in which to take cuttings of plants and because the compost is still warm, they will make roots quickly. It is far easier to keep cuttings going through our winter than wait for the spring, when the young plants will have to endure a hot summer shortly afterwards.By now the spring flowering bulbs will be in the garden centres. Many of them come loose these days so take along some Post-it labels on which to write their names on the bags, so that you don’t get them muddled up. Check for mildew or softness and choose only firm bulbs. You must wait for the ground to be damp before planting or the bulbs will not make roots. As a general rule, plant bulbs 2-3 times their height, but some bulbs like amaryllis and Paperwhites like to have their heads and shoulders above the soil. I always dig up my freesia bed after all the leaves have died down and save all the biggest bulbs to replant. Daffodils and hyacinths can grow on for several years but as time goes by they will reduce in size. Tulips will only give of their best in the first year, despite your best efforts and they are often grown in tubs because of this. Small bulbs like muscari have very dainty blue flowers, but reproduce themselves everywhere, so beware! Before long, tiny cyclamen leaves will be appearing in shaded areas to charm us as we approach winter. Many are natives of this end of the Mediterranean and have been tucked away from the heat all summer, to emerge and give us cheer in the coming months.Pecans nuts are ready for picking, so watch out for local crows that know when the outer pods will burst open and they can wrench the juicy nuts from inside. We have no nuts here this year, though. Our tree cropped so heavily last year that it is having a rest this time round. This sometimes happens with other fruiting trees as well. The best way to combat this is to remove some of the fruits early on, to allow the others to mature. At least we are saved from the crows this year!Collect up any leaves from underneath plants and bushes and if they are free from bugs and then pop then into your compost bin as a dry layer. I use plastic dustbins with holes drilled into the sides and bottom to allow for any excess liquid to escape, otherwise I would have a very soggy and smelly mess inside. I keep my compost bins going all year round with veggie and fruit leavings. I have mentioned before that any dry layers, which are essential, are now composed of our private shredded papers. It is necessary however, whether you use bins or heaps, that the contents are rotated often so that the compost doesn’t harden and become useless smelly garbage. Three bins are ideal – one being filled, one ‘cooking’ and one ready for use.Potted Chrysanthemums, known as ‘Pot Mums’ are available now to brighten up the autumn borders. They come in such wonderful colours and grow well in pots if you do not have a garden. They may even survive winter and continue to give you pleasure later on. Other winter hardy plants include heathers, which are available in various colours and are quite robust. Petunias are year round plants brightening up a veranda or pots and if they are regularly dead headed, will last for ages. Plant of the Month Albuca nelsoniiThese perennial bulbs have the common name of Slime Lily and yet they are such a wonderful attraction in our spring gardens. Why such an awful common name? – I can only think it is because the leaves are sappy and become slimy when they are dying off. Albuca belong to the Aparagaceae family, in a sub-family division called Scilloideae ,whose plants are found in countries with Mediterranean climates including South Africa, Central Asia and South America. There are quite a few species of Albuca available, but Albuca nelsonii, named after a British nurseryman who first collected the species, is the only one available in Cyprus as far as I am aware. The attractive white-striped green blooms, grown on long stems which can grow to 60-120 cm above the leaves, make good cut flowers and are sometimes night scented. Later, their shiny black seeds are encased in a round or oval capsule. Propagation is by off shoots from the mother plant or seeds.Albuca nelsonii grow well in dry shade rockeries as well as in pots, although they may become pot bound after a time. The bulbs are usually planted with their shoulders exposed, rather like Hippeastrum bulbs, and may be frosted in very high elevations, so best grown not above 300 metres elevation. An easy bulb to grow, with wonderful flowers to admire.You May LikeUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementAdd This One Thing To Your Dog’s Food To Help Them Be HealthierUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementUndoDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoTurkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
