Double bench seat

Geoff from Silverdale

Here's a nice way to sit back and relax with a coffee or a glass of wine. Ideal in garden settings, under a shady tree, or on the deck.

It’s solid, comfortable, and won’t blow away in the wind. The timber is New Zealand treated pine, suitable for outdoor use.

Dimensions:
Width 1380mm
Height at back 800mm
From front to back 580mm

Can be made without the centre table if preferred. Or if you have a different design in mind, let me know.

Price: $230

Work during lockdown

Murray from Stanmore Bay

Does anybody have any ideas or contacts for work during this lockdown period? This could be voluntary or paid - doesn't matter.
My wife and I are mature, have experience with computers, hospitality industry, accounting, etc. We are just bored and feeling helpless stuck at home while others (e.g. health workers) are out there doing it all for us.
Any suggestions would be most appreciated.

Our sweet pea seeds send out, April issue and Get Growing

Mei Leng Wong Reporter from NZ Gardener & 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.
