Fuel is taxed to the limit by this government - over 1/2 of the cost is TAX so that they can employ more back-office bureaucrats for more waste, waffle, wokeness and whatever - like giving $2.75m to the mongrel mob! I mean we need MORE regulation, rules, control, etc so why not whack the cost onto fuel? So that cost runs through the entire economy, like our input costs, and NZ Post rates.   ..read more

Ok we have had a few angry customers! But it's all to do with possums, deer or hares/rabbits dining out on their nice newly planted seedlings without any form of repellent or fencing or prowling dogs on the job.The solution is to apply protection BEFORE planting and walking away...NOT AFTER they have paid you a visit.

Consumers now demand natural alternatives made locally for our conditions, not imports from the other side ..read more

Rabbit or hare damage can be devastating to the tree seedling.

One bite and it will distort growth, plus set the plant back a season or two until it can recover. Either that or the tree will die. FAT-BASEDFor a 4-6 month protection shield then our fat-based repellents are ideal. However it depends on whether you have the time an ..read more
