National's Paula Bennett has responded to reports Winston Peters has called for her head to roll - by sending him flowers.

The New Zealand First leader is off duty this week having minor knee surgery for an old rugby injury.

Yesterday, Newstalk ZB revealed Peters' legal team has discussed Bennett resigning from Parliament as a condition for settling his legal action against her

It's over the alleged leak of his superannuation details pre-election.

Rather than deliver a resignation, Bennett has sent Peters a bouquet, the NZ Herald reports. 

The card reads "Hope you are resting and taking some time out. Get well soon. Paula."
