Hi Neighbours,

Thanks to all those who have bought plants from me last spring, it is much appreciated and I hope all the plants are happy and healthy in their new homes.

Tis the season to be planting and I still have several hundred plants for sale. They are mainly hedging plants, shrubs and some native Hebe’s. They range in price, however mostly from $6 to $10 each.10% discount if you buy 20 or more plants.

Invoice available. Cash or bank deposit only.

The plants available are as follows:

Griselinia littoralis 'Canterbury' (Interesting Griselinia with orange tinged leaves and red/brown stems. Generally slower growing than the other varieties. Very attractive.)

Coprosma 'Bronze' (native plant, grows to a couple of metres tall. Deep bronze colour in cooler months. Very hardy.) Only 5 left.

Escallonia ‘Gold Brian’ (bright yellow foliage, great for hedges)

Corokia ‘Geenty’s Green’ (native, great hedging plant, about 30 to 40cm’s tall)

Abelia grandiflora (very tough hedging plant, beautiful reddish foliage in winter and small pinkish fading to white flowers.

Abelia grandiflora 'Gold'. Similar to the red form of Abelia, however it has beautiful wispy, golden yellow foliage and small pinkish fading to white flowers. Great for a hedge or a feature plant.

Melicope ternata. Native plant with shiny, bright green leaves. Looks quite tropical. Sea spray resistant and pretty hardy. Can get to about 3 metres tall.

Hebe’s (about 4 different ones, all blue and lilac coloured flowers)

Michelia 'Figo' Otherwise known as Port Wine Magnolia. Amazing scented flowers, great feature or hedging plant.

Rosemary 'Tuscan Blue' Tall, upright Rosemary great for hedging and of course cooking. Put it in with your lamb roast!

How Curtain Linings Work

Robert Anderson from Curtain Clean Napier

During winter it is easy to lose heat, and in summer it is easy to overheat a home if windows are not appropriately covered. Lining is a cost-effective addition to help protect your curtain fabric, while providing some added insulation for the home, reducing window heat loss by 40-60% when closed. Working all year round, lined drapery is an important tool in creating a thermal insulation barrier. Lined curtains have an added lining layer on the back of the curtain which can be attached to the curtain or can be hung on a separate track behind the curtain.


Linings help your window furnishings last longer: With a good quality lining, your chosen curtain fabric is shielded from the harsh UV rays of the sun, preventing your fabric from fading.


Linings provide added privacy: A lot of fabrics are only somewhat private, especially at night. Adding a lining to your window furnishings will increase the opacity of the treatment, ensuring complete privacy.


Linings provide increased insulation: Insulated linings trap air in and between the layers of fabric, preventing the heat in your homes escaping out the windows, and offering significant savings on your energy bill.


Linings can provide light control: Ideal for bedrooms and media rooms, block-out linings allows you to block light coming through a window and keep your rooms dark in the middle of the day.

Linings improve the appearance of window furnishings: The colours of your chosen fabric can appear richer when a lining is placed behind them. Without a lining, sunlight coming through a fabric can make the colours appear washed out during the day.



Call us or your local Curtain makers to discuss adding a lining to your current curtains.

Office space in Hastings urgently required to accommodate Big Brother Big Sisters who are currently housed at the Hastings Sports Centre. Our team of three need to move from our office space by the 10th July to accommodate council staff from Heretaunga House which requires building work.
We are extremely grateful to HDC who have been generous in supporting us over the past year. HDC have kindly left the door open should we want to return to the office space once a decision has been made on the future of Heretaunga House.
BBBS need office space that could accommodate three people two days a week. We also need space to store a filing cabinet and other items. If necessary we could provide our own desks, chairs etc.
We will be moving from the Sports Centre by Friday 10th July, however the team can work from home until alternative accommodation is found. If you can help please call Patricia Small on 022 581 2965 or email: Patricia@bbbs.nz
