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.
The Marlborough District Library (Blenheim) and Picton Library and Service Centre are now open but they’re operating in a different way under Alert Level 2.
You can return library items via the after-hours facility, borrow, request and collect held items. To enter the library you have to show your library card. This is to help with contact tracing; only one family member is allowed in at one time.
Some services including wifi, computer access, printing, newspapers and programmes such as Baby Rhyme Time are unavailable. The libraries are open from 10.00 am - 4.00 pm Monday to Friday.
This is a 4 year old Griselinia Hedge. New owner must remove. There will be a digger on-site in the next month that can also assist.
Grown in good Springlands soil.
Feel free to request any number of plants.
Book in your fruit trees for a prune this winter.
