World famous cream horns here in NZ

In 2013, Duncan Garner was travelling around NZ with RadioLIVE and came across Viv’s Kitchen, in Sanson. He stopped in to try one their famous ‘Cream Horns’; that’s when things started to pick up for their business and an enduring friendship was born.

Tony and Helen talk with Viv from Viv's Kitchen Sanson.

Ants and huhu grubs for breakfast

Anteater was formed in May of 2016 when Peter and Bex met at Start-Up Weekend Christchurch.  It's been full steam ahead since then as Anteater has worked tirelessly to bring delicious insects to your favourite restaurant menus and special events.

Dutch elm disease and Waitakere closure

First found in Myers Park over the 1989/90 summer, the disease is currently restricted to the Auckland region. Recently, trees have become infected in larger numbers in central Auckland.

Tony gets the latest from Resident Arborist Fredrik Hjelm from The Living Tree Company.

Caring for salvias

As a group of plants they generally flower from late spring and over the summer months. In the garden they prefer a sunny disposition and well drained soils that have been well fed. Tony talks with Kate Jury, Sea Flower Nursery Thames for expert advice on salvias.
