Gardening help

I have a large garden and struggling to keep on top of the weeds etc. Unfortunately we live in Westerfield, 20kms out of Tinwald, which may put helpers off, but I can help with petrol costs and you will be rewarded with beautiful scenery and my fridge is always full with refreshments. I'm so desperate I will award double time credits.

I have not been able to do any gardening since September last year! I want a gardener who will leave my stinging nettle which I am growing for the Red and Yellow Admiral butterflies caterpillars.

mulch for garden - in bags (Kaitaia)

Has anyone got good (untreated) mulching material like sawdust, wood shavings, leaf litter etc.? Should be clean as in no chemicals on them as I'd like to use it for the veggie garden. Can provide feed bags. Am too lazy to fill them myself so happy to give more timebank hours :P Happy to pick up. Many thanks.

I have space on my driveway to take excess mulch e.g. wood chips, mulched greenwaste, prunings. You can drop these things to me if you need to dump them (spray free only)

Oakura: Tree trimmings for goats

If you are pruning feijoa, karo, lemonwood, bay, ficus I'd like small amounts of those cuttings to feed to my two goats as treats. I'm located in Oakura so near to me is best. Elayne
