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.
one is a female - white colour with black markings, the other is a male, black. They are both young dogs and both are micro-chipped. They were loose in a fenced and gated back yard with an older dog. The older dog has a leg injury from a bite, or being booted. Will post photos when available.
We are looking for feedback from Neighbourly members throughout New Zealand on their health and wellbeing - and whether they saw our recent programme with TVNZ, Healthy For Life.
We'd love you to take our survey. It'll only take a couple of minutes.
We're proud to be working with our friends at Stanley Street to help support all New Zealand businesses in these troubled times.
We think you'll love these free Support Local toolkits. If you spot one of these in a window of a business near you (or on your takeaway coffee cup!) you'll know you're helping a proudly local company.
