Welcome! New Zealand is a beautiful place. I had a chance to hike there for 3 monthsafter college in the 90's.  Gorgeous. I had a great time doing the track aroundStewart Island in particular.  The only thing I missed out on was climbing Taranaki.  It began snowing heavily while I made the ascent so I turned back (wisely, I believe). I would agree that it's very moderate where you are, very much like the Pacific Northwest of North America, surely zone 8 & 9, especiallysince you have things like Nikau Palm (Rhopalostylis sapida), Pohutakawa (Metrosideros excelsa), Kiekie (Freycinetia banksii) &Kawakawa (Macropiper excelsum) growing about. A great country, with great plants. I live in the US in Zone 6 so I can't grow any of it. Haha.What I wouldn't give to grow a big fat Kauri here. -Erick  > Date: Mon, 4 Jul 2011 01:28:06 +1200
