Brian from New Lynn

Air New Zealand has launched one of its best-ever Grabaseat deals, offering Kiwis flights around the country for just $19. The flights go on sale on Friday morning. The airline giant is releasing 1000 domestic flights for just $19 to all Air New Zealand's 20 destinations, and thousands more across the country from $39. If you fancy a cheap overseas holiday, Grabaseat is launching some of the cheapest flights to Australia ever seen. One-way tickets from Auckland to Sydney and Christchurch to Brisbane are on sale for $99, while flights to the Gold Coast and Melbourne are available from $119. If an Adelaide getaway appeals to you, it'll cost you just $199 and Perth one way is $299. Air New Zealand is also offering a cut-price tropical getaway for Kiwis, with flights from Auckland to Hawaii's Honolulu available from $299 one way.

"Whether you're looking for an Aussie break, a relaxing Waikiki getaway, or are planning a catch up with friends and family across New Zealand, this is your chance to fly at a fantastic price," Air New Zealand CRO Cam Wallace said. "These deals will fly off the site, so make sure you're logged into grabaseat.co.nz and ready to book a bargain at 9am." Deals are also available on the Grabaseat mobile app.

Our sweet pea seeds send out, April issue and Get Growing

Mei Leng Wong Reporter from NZ Gardener & Get Growing

Dear neighbours and NZ Gardener family,

Our April issue should be with our subscribers now and available in supermarkets and service stations (having been distributed prior to the lockdown restrictions). Whether or not it's on the stands yet is a bit patchy ... but then the incredibly brave and hard-working supermarket staff have quite a bit on their plate right now so I understand if there is a delay! Please, please, please everyone ... don't go out to buy it! Normally of course we love you buying NZ Gardener but right now it's far more important that you stay home and stay safe. (You can buy a copy with your online shopping though! That's safe and I think we are all in the market for something uplifting to read right now).

In this issue we offered to send out sweet pea seeds to any reader who sent us a SSAE. Just to reassure you, we will still send out sweet pea seeds to any reader who is keen to participate. We are just not quite sure when! Ignore the dates in the magazine of when you needed to send the envelope in by - that has been indefinitely extended. But we cannot wait to send you the seed and for those flowers to bloom as by then we will be well through this or even have it behind us. And keep letting us know what you are sowing and growing, send in pictures of your harvest, your flowers or what you are sharing.

We always love hearing from NZ Gardener readers but now when we are all staying apart that connection means more than you can imagine. Stay home, stay safe and stay in touch everyone. For the most updated gardening advice, subscribe to our digital e-zine Get Growing, which will be delivered to your inbox completely free.
