Horses.

Danny from Mapua

Would those people that use the footpath to exercise their horses please stop. These are footpaths for people not horses. The horse shit that is left behind ( pardon the pun)is really not a good look. If you are to lazy to pick it up then leave your horse in the paddock.

Our sweet pea seeds send out, April issue and 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.

Connings food market

Hi guys,

I have just signed a petition to get Connings reopened. Connings, a local produce food market was closed by the government.

Hi guys,

I have just signed a petition to get Connings reopened. Connings, a local produce food market was closed by the government. So, instead of driving 12 kilometres to Connings we now have to drive 18 kilometres to the supermarkets in Motueka. There we can buy veges at high prices which were transported from who knows to Motueka, handled by dozens of people.
In the 15 years I am in NZ this is only the second petition I signed because I support this.
Go ahead and sign it here: chng.it...

If you need firewood Good Wood suppliers are still open

The Team from Nelson City Council

If you’ve got a wood burner at home and you haven’t got your firewood in yet, don’t be tempted by cheap or free offcuts being advertised at the moment.
Often this wood is either treated or painted, which is illegal to burn.

If you’ve got a wood burner at home and you haven’t got your firewood in yet, don’t be tempted by cheap or free offcuts being advertised at the moment.
Often this wood is either treated or painted, which is illegal to burn.
If you burn it you will be causing air pollution and are likely to get a visit from our compliance officers. If you need firewood, Good Wood suppliers are still open as essential services.

Give them a call, and they will deliver – you can find their details here nelson.govt.nz/good-wood.

Remember to follow their lockdown protocols to keep everyone safe.
