Hey neighbours,
Have you been to the country's first "drive-thru" garden centre in Plimmerton yet? Owner Richard Persson said he sold six weeks worth of vege seedlings in three days because "we're all alcohlic gardeners this side of lockdown".

Vege seedlings have been selling out because gardeners are buying them up like crazy now and the growers weren't able to plant at level 4. But they're warning other shortages of fruit and native trees are still to come and could be long-lasting.
