It is with great sadness that I send out this final Garden-NZ newsletter to farewell our gardening friends.

Unfortunately after many years, the Garden-NZ website has now ceased to operate. Reorganisation of our parent company will now see the team focus on other publications within our group.

In particular, we will be working on our monthly sister publications, Rural Living and EastLife magazines While these lifestyle magazines relate principally to the regions in which most of the team live and work – eastern Auckland (EastLife) and Franklin district (Rural Living) – they will continue to regularly feature gardening-related content.

Oh, and there are plenty of prizes to be won on the magazines’ WIN pages and those Garden-NZ competitions which are still active can be entered at

Copies of both magazines are available free of charge throughout parts of Auckland or subscribe to receive our e-editions online which are accompanied by a short newsletter (not my usual long ramble) to highlight the month ahead.

E-editions can also be viewed at or And, of course, readers are invited to chat with me and other members of the team on their Facebook pages - and

I will miss the relationship Garden-NZ has enjoyed with so many followers who have regularly chatted with us on the website and Facebook page and we can still chat for a few more days yet – the Garden-NZ Facebook page will remain operational until after Easter so feel free to share your thoughts with us.

To you all, happy and prosperous gardening!
Cheers from the transplanted Garden-NZ team.
