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

Please continue to contact your family doctor for any healthcare needs, including if you have COVID-19 symptoms.

Over 40,000 people in our region have been tested for COVID-19.

This is thanks to a massive effort by people in the region, including community and primary healthcare staff, laboratory workers and DHB staff who put in the hard yards to identify and stop the spread of COVID-19.

People can get tested if they have at least one of the following symptoms: cough, sore throat, runny nose, shortness of breath, loss of smell or fever.

There are two Pasifika Health providers tailored for Pasifika and Maaori people – Langimalie Health Centre in Panmure and South Seas Healthcare in Otara, and people are welcome to go there if they fit the testing criteria.

Large families are now included as a priority group for COVID-19 testing.

More Community-Based Assessment Centres for COVID-19, means more people in our community can be tested.
