Pruning apple trees.

Anne from Linwood

Hi all! I have 2 espaliered apple trees that badly need pruning. They aren't that tall, but I don't know how to do it. Is there anyone available that knows how to do it who could help please? I am able to pay a certain amount. Thanks.

Are Akaroa's Giant House consent costs reasonable?

Jake Kenny Reporter from Community News

The owner of a Banks Peninsula tourist attraction is “flabbergasted” at her endless battle to expand her garden and build a cafe – with bureaucratic consenting costs spiralling to $165,000.

Josie Martin, owner of The Giant’s House mosaic garden in Akaroa, has already spent $97,000 and three years trying to get a consent from Christchurch City Council.

She is now facing additional costs of $67,000 after commissioner David Mountfort​ decided her consent application needed to be publicly notified.

Do you think this amount of $$$ in consent costs is reasonable?
