Houseplants looking sick? The plant doctor answers your questions

Mikaela Wilkes Reporter from Homed

Hi neighbours,
Thank you to everyone who submitted questions about their sickly plant babies. Houseplants might be fashionable, but they can be tricky to get right. Whether it’s the wrong light, too much or too little water, or a pesky draft, it doesn’t take much for your prize peace lily to turn yellow or an infestation of bugs to set in.

We put some of your houseplant questions to the plant doctors from Kings Plant Barn to diagnose. Find their answers here.

A tale of two book lovers: Second-hand bookshops open next door to each other

Jake Kenny Reporter from Community News

Happy Monday neighbours,

Second-hand bookstores are like buses: You wait years for one, and then two come along at once.

A pair of second-hand bookstores have opened next door to each other in Woolston in a bid to transform Ferry Rd into a “book destination”.

At first sight it may appear like a sitcom about two rival booksellers, but the owners of Steadfast Books and Book Barn decided opening next door to each other would help bring in more customers.

What do you think about this as a business decision? Savvy?
