The answer lies in the Italy experience

Paul from Pukete

Why are Jacinda and everybody so hard about the lockdown
The answer lies in the Italy experience and the massive death rate it is experiencing
You have to ask yourself why is Italy getting hit so bloody hard
Well the people in northern Italy have a lot to do with china when Italy opened its borders and trade opened up, there was a lot of investment from China particularly in many of the premier brands in Italy
This resulted in an influx of about 100 000 Chinese gaining residence in northern Italy now when Trump shut out all flights from China everybody called him jingoistic or racist but he actually did the right thing
Italy didn't close down flights from China for fear of being called racist as so the flights remained open for some weeks more, much too current their detriment
Now northern Italy has approximately 20% of their residents infected with Covid 19
so it is literally out of control
Researchers out of Cambridge University have done a study and confirmed this
China,s delay in coming clean about the virus, allowed it to get a big head start as well hence the need for the lockdown,expect it to go on for some time
Once we get released from the lockdown enjoy Godzone New Zealand as international travel will take a huge hit that may well last about 3 to 4 years as countries will be reluctant to open their borders

Our sweet pea seeds send out, April issue and Get Growing

Mei Leng Wong Reporter from NZ Gardener & Get Growing

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.

Have you been able to find flour?

Libby Wilson Reporter from Hamilton Press

You'll probably have seen some empty flour shelves at local supermarkets recently.

But the problem isn't flour production, reporter Kirsty Lawrence found out, when she spoke to producers. Read more here.

What are you making during the lockdown?
