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.

water pipes leaking yet again

Christine from Hospital Hill

Again we have no water at all, not one drop. Again our water has been turned off by the council to repair dodgy water pipes.
Again we had no warning of this going to happen so we could ensure we at least had a supply of water so we could drink, wash & cook food.
This has been going on for years - can you tell we are over it!
Instead of patching up the old pipes, as the old council did, this new Council needs to take some responsibility in replacing the pipes.
We voted this council in so these issues would be resolved.
There is always a solution to every problem. In this case its replacing the pipes not patching them up again and again and again.
Come on Council - use our rates money to sort this issue out on Hospital Hill - we are in Ormond Road and we are over the inconvenience and downright lack of respect in not being given any warning we will, once again, find we have no water supply.
