Does anyone know where to buy raw honey in the Wairarapa? I have a husband who suffers from hayfever and apparently local raw honey can help.

Amy- I googled "dewberry" and "wineberry" in Images and found some pics, maybe you can compare them with your alien plant?

Ha, you don't look like a wineberry! Yes I wondered if it was a wineberry as a friend had some and they were delicious - but from what I can remember very thorny and the leaves aren't distinctly variegated like this one. Unless it's a different variety? Once it stops raining I'll try to get a photo. I've googled and can't find a pic anywhere.

Um, that should read IT and not I... :)

Amy...I may be a "dewberry" or "wineberry" Are the leaves very soft and almost furry looking?I have them here, they grow wild in the bush, but not  in large quantities. The berries come away easily  the same as raspberries do. They are pleasant eating and make a nice jam-if you can get enough of them, that is!

I have a plant in the garden of the house I've just moved into and I'm not sure what it is. It has variegated leaves, and white flowers that are starting to form berries that look like raspberries - but the leaves are different. It's not thorny. I'm sure it's an edible but I can't remember what it is...I'm sure I've seen one before somewhere.

Does anyone have some broken concrete pavers or old bricks they want rid of? I want to make a fairy garden for my daughter for Christmas to get her involved in the garden & looking for something to make a wall of on the cheap - but there's nothing local on Trade Me :(

I live and work in Wellington but have a property in Masterton which we will retire to in the future so my reason for joining your group is to keep in the know with what communities in the wairarapa are up to.  Looks great to me.  Thanks for sharing

Thanks Jacob.  Since the link to the food article (below) doesn't work go to and click the 'media' tab.

Thanks, Helen.  Will do.  FYI: your link below doesn't work.
