Have you tried an amazing Esterhazy Cake? It is an Exceptional Hungarian cake made of Almond Meringue layers and rich Custard Buttercream. The layers can be customized with a different type of flour like almond, or walnut. It is purportedly named after 19th-century Prince Esterhazy of Hungary, of a family close to Austrian royalty.
Join us for a cup of coffee with that delicious torte.
Saw these lovely boards well walking along east coasts bays this evening!
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.

However if any residents, elderly or in need - residing on Wharf Rd or The Landing Albany require help during this lockdown period - please contact me.
Things like supermarket shopping, walking your dog, I don’t really know what I am offering here, other than a helping hand during a World first, a time we’ve not only not known before but won’t know for sure about for quite some time yet it seems.
I am virus free and will be suited up and masked when offering services.
Please contact me judgement and discrimination free, completely confidential.
It’s a time to stand as one and I would just like to help those that need it.
