Houseplants looking sick? The plant doctor answers your questions

Mikaela Wilkes Reporter from Homed

Hi neighbours,
Thank you to everyone who submitted questions about their sickly plant babies. Houseplants might be fashionable, but they can be tricky to get right. Whether it’s the wrong light, too much or too little water, or a pesky draft, it doesn’t take much for your prize peace lily to … View more
Hi neighbours,
Thank you to everyone who submitted questions about their sickly plant babies. Houseplants might be fashionable, but they can be tricky to get right. Whether it’s the wrong light, too much or too little water, or a pesky draft, it doesn’t take much for your prize peace lily to turn yellow or an infestation of bugs to set in.

We put some of your houseplant questions to the plant doctors from Kings Plant Barn to diagnose. Find their answers here.

Hi Neighbours,

Which roads in your area are in need of an upgrade?

Six roads around the Waikato region are getting upgraded by Waka Kotahi (NZTA) with multiple safety features set to be installed.

As part of the upgrade, sections of multiple State Highways will be fitted with rumble strips, improved roadside signs and long-life line markings.

Waka Kotahi's Director of Regional Relationships David Speirs says while traffic volumes may be lower on these roads, the risk still exists for motorists using back-country roads.

“...rumble strips can reduce the total number of crashes by around 25 percent and fatal run-off-road crashes by up to 42 percent.”

The government plans to slash the number of deaths on New Zealand roads by 40 per cent over the next 10 years, with these upgrades part of its commitments to the Road Safety Strategy.

Share your roading wish list below and please remember to type NFP if you don't want your comments featured in the South Waikato News.
