In this week's issue we propagate lemongrass; look after seedlings; pot up rooted cuttings; plant poppies and clean our tools. Lynda Hallinan talks to a Chatham Island gardener who knows a thing or two about gardening in isolation - all the time! Upcycle old pallets into stylish outdoor furniture. Indulge in some shopping too. We have a guide to garden retailers trading online and a gift guide for Mother's Day or anyone who needs a treat to lift their spirits.

I'm working on a travel story for Stuff about the things that have surprised returning Kiwis about New Zealand. If you have recently returned from overseas or know someone who has, it would be great to hear about the things that have stood out for you, for better or for worse. Whether it's to do with the weather, the cost of things, the public transport, the food, the housing, the people or something else entirely, we'd be keen to hear about it. Please remember that your comment may be included in the article, unless you say you don't want it to be. Thank you.
