What veges do you grow in pots and containers?

Mei Leng Wong Reporter from NZ Gardener & Get Growing

Our gardens are getting smaller, so NZ Gardener wants to come up with some suggestions for edible crops that do well in pots and small spaces! 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!

Discover a new wine at New World

New World Timaru

"Kia ora – Angela Boulton from New World Timaru here. Keen to discover a new top drop in time for summer?

My favourite wine from this year’s New World Wine Awards is the Starborough Sauvignon Blanc. I have worked at New World for 18 years, and I’ve been Liquor Manager for 12 years. I’ve seen and tasted some incredible award-winning wines, and this year is by far my favourite. This Sauvignon Blanc is so fruity on the palate, with flavours of lime and feijoa. It’s a perfect match with cheese and fruit platters for the upcoming summer months.”

Come into your local New World and explore the Top 50 Gold-medal winning wines – we have winners for every budget. Plus join us for complimentary wine sampling and try before you buy.
