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.

Today I decided to take a bag & a glove on our stroll in case I saw anymore...we only walked about 2kms & after 1km this bag was full!! 😔👎 I'd love for this to catch on across NZ, how about we all try it while we're strolling our streets? #tidyourneighbourhoods #covid_19 #dailywalks #stayinyourneighbourhood All you need is a bag/bucket/bowl & a glove, you could even put those empty bread bags to use! 🤞 @ Birchville

What can I do to shop safely?

Dear concerned citizen,

It’s important that we all try and shop safely as we unite against COVID-19.

Here’s a few things we should all now do, that will help slow the spread of the virus:
• send one person from your household to do the whole shop
• be aware that stores will limit numbers to help you keep 2 metres away from others
• be kind to essential workers, and others you’re sharing the shop with
• come with a list so you can get in and out as quickly as possible
• only touch what you want to buy
• if you like, take a soapy towel in a small container to wipe down trolley or basket handles etc
• keep 2 metres away from others, including staff. They need to keep safe too!
• use payWave if you can, not cash
• bag groceries away from others if you can
• take out produce when you get home, and wash first in soapy water to protect against the virus, then rinse to remove any soap residue wipe down packaged goods with a soapy clean towel, then dry
• wash your hands before and after you shop.

Can I bring people in my household with me to buy essential supplies?
You should dedicate one person per household to be the shopper. This is the safest way to get essential supplies, as it reduces the number of people who are out, and helps stop the virus from spreading.

Leaving online shopping to those who need it most
• If you are healthy, or aged under 70, you should go to the supermarket to do your shopping. This leaves online delivery slots free for those that need them most.
• If you’re a parent on your own with children or over 70, move to online shopping if available. This is important for the safety of your children and others – especially essential service providers.
• If that’s not possible, reach out to nearby friends, family or neighbours who can assist you with the shopping and get it to your doorstep. Your local community may also be able to assist, or you can contact your local store – some are putting special systems in place to help.

Thank you
If we all do our bit we’ll get through this. Thank you for working together and staying home. We can, and must stick with it.

During the heightened response to Covid-19, we are still progressing with critical projects. Some of the work involved in these projects may include a short interruption to your water supply.

Usually we let our customers know about this with a letter a couple of days beforehand. But, to ensure the safety of our community and frontline essential staff, letter drops have stopped.

We’ll continue to do our absolute best to inform you about planned service interruptions using other methods such as:
• Loud speakers
• Signs up in the street
• Social media
• Website updates

Of course, during service failures like bursts the water can be interrupted without warning. In times like these we will respond by having water available on site and letting you know about it via social media.

Council contact centres are will have this information too – so please give them a call in the first instance.
