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.

english only sign taken down from auckland cafe

tina from Levin

apparently it was racist asking their staff to all speak English in the kitchen area, so that means all countries are racist as all pilots and control tower operators must speak English while doing their job, for a simple safety reason everyone understands the first report, imagine a mayday in the pilots native tongue, lets Korea going to a control tower person in Russia that can only speak Russian I'm sure you can all figure that scenario out

tina from Levin

I am looking forward to my pension only 3 years away, however were we are as a country today re covid I really don't know if the government will be able to afford it, and I am not out there taking work from the younger people that if they are employed good for them will pay the tax towards my pension, however I have over the past employed many people and probably that tax would cover me until I lived to 110 so were I fit, well I am a young 62 year old woman very self reliant and worry about the next generation what is out there for them, it's not climate change anymore that is the problem, its work
