Lynda Hallinan reflects on 60 lessons for gardeners from the lockdown (with plenty of idea on what you can sow and grow in May); there's a bumper gardening quiz; we suggest five herbs to reduce anxiety and promote calmness; and visit a Taupo sanctuary full of art and alive with native birds and a wild and wonderful garden in Glenorchy. And since we've been gardening in isolation, Jack Hobbs talks to gardeners on the Chatham Islands about how they keep things growing, 650km from the nearest garden centre. Normally our subscribers get their copy before it goes on sale, of course, but things aren't quite normal right now so if your copy hasn't arrived yet, it should be with you very soon! We are so pleased to have a new issue of your favourite magazine for you, and I cannot wait to hear what you think. NZ Gardener has been informing and inspiring New Zealand gardeners for more than 75 years and we're incredibly grateful to our readers, especially our subscribers, because we couldn't do it without you. And by the way subscribing is easy and a much cheaper way to get your magazine each month! And would an NZ Gardener sub make a great Mother's Day gift this Sunday, you ask? I think we all know the answer to that! Jo

The Team from Wellington Water

To repair a leak, it must first be found—and this can be more complicated than you might think.

In this case, infrastructure had been built over the manhole cover that would normally be used to inspect a pipe, so our team had to find another way into it.

To repair a leak, it must first be found—and this can be more complicated than you might think.

In this case, infrastructure had been built over the manhole cover that would normally be used to inspect a pipe, so our team had to find another way into it.

Here’s Foreman Mika and Drainlayer Richie feeding a CCTV camera down the pipe after the team had carefully uncovered it with a digger.

Armed with detailed images of the 30 metre long pipe, they had the information they needed to finish the job.
