Jo and Rachel talked about what's going on in their own backyards and suggested some edible crops you can sow and grow yourself. Jo gave a masterclass in planting tomatoes, the pair discussed peeing on lemon trees and keeping cats out of your vege beds, and Rachel talked to a Central Otago gardener who has to deal with extreme temperatures, extreme drought... and temperamental donkeys.

More than a dozen Wairarapa gardeners are excited to be opening their private gardens for Pūkaha’s ninth annual fundraiser this weekend.
“The gardeners have been working so hard preparing their private gardens to welcome the public this weekend,” says organiser Rachael Dell. She’s been visiting the gardens this week and can sense the excitement building – for gardeners and ticket holders.

“These are such generous Wairarapa people – passionate gardeners who balance jobs, studies, families, and busy lives to open their gorgeous gardens to support Pūkaha. In the spirit of community, this is an event that relies on strong relationships. Everyone involved – from the gardeners to the volunteers - are all working in partnership to celebrate Pūkaha Mt Bruce, a Wairarapa Taonga,” says Rachael.

Spring weather in the Wairarapa is turning it on and the gardens are looking stunning.

Gardens open on Saturday and Sunday – 9.30am-4.30pm. This year’s tour features eight new gardens, and five that have never opened to the public before. The route centres mainly in and around Masterton and extends to Eketāhuna, taking tourgoers past Pūkaha national wildlife centre.
Tickets and information about the gardens can be found at www.wairarapagardentour.co.nz... or purchase tickets through i-sites in Masterton, Martinborough and Carterton Events Centre.

Omāroro reservoir works - water shut off

We’re progressing into the next stage of pipeline works that will connect the future Omāroro reservoir to bulk drinking water supply pipes.

Several weeks ago Wellington Water ran a trial to prepare for installing a new valve, which involved shutting off normal water supply to Wellington City for a few hours. This was to confirm that under normal demand, we’d have enough water available to allow us to drain the pipes, cut them open, install the new valves, seal everything up, and recharge the network (estimated at 15 hours).

The trial was successful – and we are planning another shutoff to complete this work tomorrow, Wednesday 6 November starting at 6am.

While we’re not expecting any outages as a result of this work, we do ask that residents are mindful of their water use.

Throughout the work, we’ll be monitoring supply and demand closely, and will inform residents on any potential supply interruptions.

Learn more about the Omāroro reservoir on our website.
