Poll: Should dogs be allowed in cafes?

The team from Neighbourly.co.nz

Dogs lolling beneath cafe tables while their owners sip lattes or glasses of pinot would have been unthinkable 30 years ago.

Now it is just the way Kiwis roll, with a raft of dog-friendly dining options available throughout the country. What do you think? Should dogs be allowed in cafes?

Poll: Was the $19k Hamilton City Council team talk a good use of ratepayers' money?

Morning neighbours,

Hamilton City Council staff have been treated to a $19k mass team talk at Claudelands Event Centre. It featured motivational speakers and a 25-minute acrobatic performance from circus company The Dust Palace.

Chief executive Richard Briggs defended the spend.

"Old school thinking is you don't spend any money on your staff and you expect them to just show up to work and go hard," he said after the event.

"New school thinking is you've got to give them some purpose for being here, and today was all about understanding that purpose and improving the wellbeing of the community."

What's your take on it? Read more here

Probably the Russian variety with pale violet flowers.
Comfrey is a must have in any garden. Easy to grow and a great source of natural fertiliser. Their very long tap roots draw up nutrients from deep down.
Just 'chop and drop' around the garden. Or steep the leaves in water in a covered container - as it will smell- for a few weeks. Then use the resulting liquid as liquid fertiliser - diluted till the mixture looks like weak tea.
They are great planted around fruit trees, about a metre from the trunk. They will slowly spread over the years so best planted away from the vege garden.
I have lots of other plants, herbs, ground covers and FRESH EGGS for sale.
Pick up on Newell road, Tamahere.

These are reliable bloomers and the foliage grows to about 30 cm. The tall flower spikes stand at about 60 cm long. They will look lovely planted at the back of a mixed flower bed to create height.

Plant it on a mound with the rhizome exposed on the soil, so that it bakes in the sun.
