I recently posted about the above Bill referendum which will be one of two referendums in the upcoming general elections. There were some excellent responses - both for and against which clearly demonstrated there are 2 sides of strong opinions which is democracy in action.
After this exercise, I was feeling uncomfortable as so much of the proposed referendum somehow didn't seem right plus it was contradictory. I couldn't actually put my finger on why I was thinking like that, but yesterday in the Press I read an excellent article by Deborah Stevens & Lynne Bover which provided me with the lightbulb moment and clearly answered what I was feeling. In today's Press letters there is a reinforcing letter written by Dr. David Mitchell of St. Alban's agreeing and commending the 2 ladies and giving his opinions based on evidence and his personal experiences. I recommend that you read the article and letter to the Editor for a different slant on the proposed referendum. In my opinion, they have hit the nail on the head but I would like other viewpoints.

Lynda Hallinan reflects on 60 lessons for gardeners from the lockdown (with plenty of idea on what you can sow and grow in May); there's a bumper gardening quiz; we suggest five herbs to reduce anxiety and promote calmness; and visit a Taupo sanctuary full of art and alive with native birds and a wild and wonderful garden in Glenorchy. And since we've been gardening in isolation, Jack Hobbs talks to gardeners on the Chatham Islands about how they keep things growing, 650km from the nearest garden centre. Normally our subscribers get their copy before it goes on sale, of course, but things aren't quite normal right now so if your copy hasn't arrived yet, it should be with you very soon! We are so pleased to have a new issue of your favourite magazine for you, and I cannot wait to hear what you think. NZ Gardener has been informing and inspiring New Zealand gardeners for more than 75 years and we're incredibly grateful to our readers, especially our subscribers, because we couldn't do it without you. And by the way subscribing is easy and a much cheaper way to get your magazine each month! And would an NZ Gardener sub make a great Mother's Day gift this Sunday, you ask? I think we all know the answer to that! Jo
