Want to hear some great gardening advice?

Mei Leng Wong Reporter from NZ Gardener & Get Growing

Our ed Jo McCarroll and our ezine Get Growing editor Rachel Clare recently recorded the very first NZ Gardener podcast. Jo and Rachel talked about what's going on in their own backyards and suggested some edible crops you can sow and grow yourself. Jo gave a masterclass in planting tomatoes, the pair discussed peeing on lemon trees and keeping cats out of your vege beds, and Rachel talked to a Central Otago gardener who has to deal with extreme temperatures, extreme drought... and temperamental donkeys. You can also follow the conversation on Spotify and Stitcher. Let your friends know too!

borrow a christmas tree

Jimmy from Wilton

Kia ora all.
our son is keen to get a bigger christmas tree but we are not going to buy one in the foreseeable future.

i’m thinking some one might go out of wellington for xmas and might lend us their one until the festivities end where we’ll pack it up and bring it back.

we’d be greatfull for some thing not too big, 1metre is ideal.

kind regards
jimmy ,ataiir & malik.
