Suggest the crops that have done well for you (ideally specify a variety) and tell other keen gardeners how you grew them, how they performed for you, and any practical advice you would pass on to ensure a great result with that crop, and any secret tips you are prepared to pass on! If your tip is used in the magazine, you'll receive a free copy... And of course the glory of being in New Zealand's favourite gardening magazine! Click on this link to send us your best tip!

Clips for bins

Carolyn from Highlands Park

I collected a clip from the council last week to lock the lid on the recycling bin after it got blown over in the wind. I had to pay $4 for one. I was told that if I returned my left over pink bags it would be free. We see rubbish around the streets on windy days which is never picked up. If council were to make these clips free more people would get them and we do indirectly pay for the bags and bins. Surely it would be in the best interests of council to provide them (supply them with the bins on delivery) to keep our city tidy.seems like a no brainer to me
