Clear leaves away from stormwater drains before heavy rain

The Team from Wellington Water

Heavy rain and blocked stormwater drains = surface flooding 🌧🍂

So moving into autumn which typically brings heavy rain, alongside leaves falling and blocking drains, means our crews will be busy responding to flooding events - much like they were at the end of March.

Heavy rain and blocked stormwater drains = surface flooding 🌧🍂

So moving into autumn which typically brings heavy rain, alongside leaves falling and blocking drains, means our crews will be busy responding to flooding events - much like they were at the end of March.

You can help to reduce the amount of flooding by giving the drains in your street or on your property a sweep every now and then.

Easter weekend is looking a bit wet, so while you’re at home during this lockdown, why not get out and clear leaves and rubbish from on and around stormwater sumps?

Coco follows her owner round the house all day, Buster has started barking at strangers, and Rover has already been walked by every member of the family today. Twice.

We are so happy to be welcoming an incredible new partner to Neighbourly - joining our long-term friends AMI, Resene and Ryman Healthcare.

Pet Direct are the new kids on the pet block and know the industry inside-out; they have over 350 dog years of animal experience within their team. Most importantly right now, they're still delivering all your essential items during the Covid-19 lockdown.

The Pet Direct team do things differently; firstly they ALL have pets of their own. They also personally hand-pick every product they stock; they have over 5,000 items that have been tried and tested (but mostly eaten). They ship daily, from their Auckland-based warehouse, straight to your doorstep (with free delivery over $29), and offer a best price guarantee.

Neighbours - our pets remain a constant source of love and comfort during unsettling times. So show them (and the team at Pet Direct) how special they are. To say thanks for the support (and for being a good neighbour during this tough time), they're offering you 10% off their already awesome prices. Just use the code NEIGHBOURLY10 at checkout.

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.
