Just received this from my courier company
NEW Monthly Variable Fuel Charge (AUCKLAND ONLY)
Since the cost of oil has increased from the 2016 rate of $30.29 USD to 2018 $74.00 USD and the introduction of the Auckland Regional Fuel Charge, we are now forced to pay a monthly Variable Fuel Rate (VFR). We will notify you in advance of the upcoming months VFR charges (calculated on the current price of fuel), and will also be posted here on our website.
The month of August variable fuel rate (VFR) is 1.7%, this is on all domestic parcels.
INCREASE Market Place Price
Unfortunately our suppliers have increased their prices by 3.5% due to increased staffing and infrastructure costs. However, we have negotiated a lower increase, and as of September 1 we are passing on a 2.5% price increase across the board.
I gurantee this oncrease will be passed on by all suppliers and prices will be on the way up. and we were told by the politicians taht the increases would be that great. WATCH this Space Phil Goff
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.
New York City urges all residents to wear face coverings in public, Auckland should follow as well.
