Learning to grow in New Zealand
"I want to thank you Daltons Management Team for organising such as wonderful gardening classes and event for us. Especially Xanthe and the team sacrifice their family weekend time.
I come from Malaysia where concrete or tiles is our backyard preference. When I migrate to New Zealand 5 years old ago, try planting at backyard was a failure. Then I gave up totally until one day I was googling, found Daltons Landscape supplies. Still not very sure to attend the class until last few months, I went to purchase few bags of potting mix and decided to spend 2 hours at your place.
Wow, the tips were very helpful, I try grow some garlic, lettuce and carrot in winter and its work. After the fruits class, I bought the bambina foejoa, digging at backyard again.
As English is not my first language, finding difficult to know what is the plant name. Wow, Yesterday, lucky draw won me the Kings Seeds catalogue which is very useful for me. With the seed mix and fruit trees fertilisers, you are making me working harder with my garden.
I will share the goodness with my colleagues and encourage them to attend the class too.
Look forward for future classes. Thank again :-) Kattry"

A good fun prize. Thank you. Steph"
Ellerslie International Flower Show draw winner receives a prize from DaltonsOne of ten Ellerslie Flower Show prize winners recently wrote to Daltons:
“Just a note to say “thank you” on behalf of my grandmother (and me!) for the most amazing prize which was delivered today. We were on the lookout for the courier expecting a small trinket in a courier bag! Not so, however. Kerryn from Daltons has turned up and unloaded not 1 but 4 huge bags of compost/soil type products and additional packets of specialised soil mixes.
Nanna is just overwhelmed, Kerryn unloaded everything right where it was most convenient for her, it is like Christmas for her. When I left Nanna was still looking at the different packets and planning what she was going to do with each. She is an avid gardener and this was clearly an ideal prize for her.
... I happened to be visiting Nanna when this prize was delivered and what was also lovely to see was the time Kerryn took to chat with Nanna about her garden and his. Nanna really appreciated this conversation.
Thank you again from both of us for this incredible prize.”
