What creative ways are you saving water?

Kendall Hutt Reporter from East & Bays Courier

Hi neighbours. Our water use is "skyrocketing" according to Watercare, breaking previous water records three times last week. The water company says if we continue to use more and more water on hot days, restrictions may be introduced. What creative ways are you trying to save water? Do you have a timer in your shower? Have you replaced your herbs with cacti so you don't have to water them? Let us know, we'd love to hear your stories.

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.

A very important Covid-19 safety message from NZ police

Caroline Williams Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Hi neighbours. Remember police Sergeant Guy Baldwin, who rose to fame in 2009 for his expression "always blow on the pie"?
Well he's back, this time with a message for Kiwis: Stay home and help break the chain of coronavirus.
"This thing (coronavirus) is an invisible dragon. Please, stay home. Let's break the chain and save lives. If we follow the rules, we'll end this lockdown sooner. Let's slay this dragon, and get back to doing the things we love, like eating pies."
