Jo and Rachel talked about what's going on in their own backyards and suggested some edible crops you can sow and grow yourself. Jo gave a masterclass in planting tomatoes, the pair discussed peeing on lemon trees and keeping cats out of your vege beds, and Rachel talked to a Central Otago gardener who has to deal with extreme temperatures, extreme drought... and temperamental donkeys. You can also follow the conversation on Spotify and Stitcher. Let your friends know too!

Free car parking, rates holidays for owners of new properties and financial incentives for developers should all be considered to ensure central Christchurch flourishes rather than flounders, councillor James Gough believes.

Gough has been tasked by mayor Lianne Dalziel to ensure plans designed to revitalise the heart of Christchurch do not fall flat. He believes ignoring the central city's regeneration and revitalisation means you "might as well write off the next three years".

Wednesday Open Home now time 3pm
If you enjoy renovating then look no further...this two-bedroom character cottage is definitely in need of TLC.
Situated in a historic street in Sydenham this home is selling in it's uninsured 'as is where is' condition.
Our vendor had previously started renovations but those were not completed and code compliance was not issued. It's time now to hand this project over to you, so come on, roll up those sleeves and get stuck in.
This home offers an open plan kitchen, dining and living area with a wood burner which opens up to a north-facing private courtyard and garden area and has one bathroom.
There is a concrete pad where the single garage use to be plus off-street parking space. Close to Bradford Park and many more amenities.
