Busy Lizzy Gardens would love to help you renew your garden with a planting plan identifying fabulous new plants, trees or flowers to create the space you want. You can then use the plan to buy and plant them yourself - or sit back and we'll do it for you!
Just wondering if anyone had any indoor cuttings they would be happy to share, I've decided to restart my indoor plants again but because I can't get to plant shops I thought I would ask. Even if they were left in a wall or on the ground near a letterbox for pick up. I would happily bank transfer for plants as well. Thank you
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.
Just a warning to people walking and running in Tohuna Torea. Today I spotted two separate cyclists tearing along at pace forcing people off the paths to get out of their way. This is highly dangerous given the twists and turns (not to mention bumps) along this route and bearing in mind we are supposed to be doing our best to keep ourselves and each other out of hospitals during this period I wanted to let folk know to please keep an eye out for them. Totally illegal for them to be in there of course for obvious reasons but some people simply have no regard for others or the natural life in TT. Keep safe
