How to imprison a tree.
 

I don't think I'm depressed. I dunno where these rather grim images have come from.

In other events, I have finally after two years run into the limitations of my mode of transport. I want to buy two large terracotta pots (and potting mix) for growing tomatoes in, and bussing them home would be a serious hassle, so I'm considering signing up for Cityhop - a car share service. There's a one-off $75 set up charge, which is putting me off a bit. It may turn out to be cheaper to use a taxi as a delivery service.

I know we haven't met IRL, but I'm going to be going to a garden centre shortly to buy potting mix for my container garden. I'd be happy to be your delivery service if you'd like.

That would be great, thanks! When and where do you anticipate going?

I'm totally flexible! Except I'm booked tomorrow. Do you have somewhere in mind?

One option is you can pay for your stuff at your place of choice and just have them hold it and I'll can pick it up during the afternoon (when I get off work) and deliver it to you. Either when you're off work or even during the day if there's a safe place for it.

Or we could just meet up and go together. Or what have you. Easy is as easy does!

Cool! I went to the Lyall Bay Warehouse today, and they have some possibilities. I'm going to have a squiz at that pot-shop in Thorndon tomorrow, weather permitting - it was a bit hairy on the bike today. I think I have your e-mail - I'll be in touch. It would be good to actually meet in person after so long living in the same city and all.

hi
i have only just read your thread -Did you get your plants and did it all work out? Do you only need a car once in a blue moon. I worked out $75 divided by 12 = $6 a month to have access to a car whenever I want. It saves me sooo much money in taxis and is often way more convenient than a bus. Have you checked it out? They have 2 convenient parks and are growing in Auckland. Maybe Wellington is a bit slower to catch on to carless life? I live out of Auckland and use buses and cityhop when I need a car - it works well and saves me a fortune.

This post is 2 years old!
And no, I haven't signed up for Cityhop - the carparks are not that convenient for me, and taxis work out cheaper in the long run when other public transport is unavailable.
