We help you get the most from your garden

Terri Shaw from Wild About Weeds garden services

Now is the time to plant trees and shrubs, sow veges and flowers, propagate and divide perennials, and sow green mulch in bare spaces.
Feed your plants and trees, prune certain shrubs and give hedges the last trim before spring. Also minimise overwintering fungi, vine hoppers, aphids and scale.

And weeding - there’s always weeding - to reduce competition among plants for precious resources.

We're back to work this week.

Favourite discoveries on NZ travels

Lorna Thornber Reporter from Stuff Travel

Hi everyone,
We'd be keen to hear about your discoveries on your recent travels around New Zealand. Were there any small towns, activities or attractions that surprised you, for better or for worse? Did you come across any lesser-know spots you think more Kiwis should check out? Which small towns do you think deserve more visitors than they get? Please remember your comment may be included in an article unless you state that you don't want it to be. Cheers.

Cemeteries Management Plan Review

Simone Borgstede from Wellington City Council

As part of our Cemeteries Management Plan Review for Mākara, Karori and Tawa cemeteries, we’re looking at how grave sites should be maintained. Many people like to place tributes on the graves of their loved ones, but the decorations can blow away, creating rubbish and causing pollution.

We'd like to do a quick poll: should plastic decorations be banned from the city’s cemeteries? Let us know what you think here: www.letstalk.wellington.govt.nz...

To share your suggestions about how best to manage graveside tributes and for more information, visit: www.letstalk.wellington.govt.nz...

Feedback closes at 5pm Friday 31 July 2020. Your feedback will help us to prepare a draft plan, which will go out for formal consultation later this year.

What do you think about Victoria University's redevelopment proposal?

Mandy Te Reporter from Dominion Post

Victoria University of Wellington hopes to demolish the earthquake-prone Gordon Wilson Flats and turn that area into its "front door". There are plans for a plaza, research facilities and an elevator as part of a pedestrian link between The Terrace and Kelburn campus. How do you feel about this? Do you think the Gordon Wilson Flats should go?
