Hi,

I have a lemon tree in my garden but it didn’t have any lemon this year.

We did have good amount of lemon last year though.

I can see the leaves have gone a bit yellow on their tips.

What should I do to have a good amount lemon again next year?

Thank you.

Regards
Victoria Shin

I have a Tahitian lime and a Meyer lemon which are suffering badly from a heavy infestation of scale. These trees are large and apart from the scale are very healthy. I feed them regularly with citrus food,sheep pellets and general garden fertilizer in rotation. I have difficulty spraying them amd find it impossible to get the underside of all the leaves adequately covered due to their size. I have also given them neem tree granules which I was told would ‘do the trick.’ Is there a systemic spray which would help or anything else you could suggest – I’m desperate! Many thanks.

I have a 25ft magnolia, 15ft looks like ornamental plum? And a punus of similar size with bora. No idea on specifics as been here 6 months but all need a hair cut. I dont know how to prune to shape a tree. Help please. Can you suggest a sight for info or some tips. I can send pics if that will help. I like these 3 trees and want to keep them healthy.

Hi
My 2 year old Pukka tree has developed a vertical split on the trunk. It’s about 8-10 inches long with a bit of clear sap running.

Should I do something?
Thanks

We are planning to move our Buxus hedging.I want to know if I can replant it a little deeper in the soil so that the foliage is at ground level. It will mean about about 100mm of trunk would be buried.
Many thanks.

Hi!
We have recently moved to a new house that has some tall Cyprus / conifer trees. They are showing some brown foliage as shown in the photos. I cannot see any bugs or scale in the plants themselves. Is this perhaps normal for this time of year?
Thank you,
Shelley

Hi,
We have a hedge (Mexican orange blossom) that has bora. The hedge has grown quite large for the space and the combination of this and the bora it is now quite woody.
What are the chances of getting it back to good health?

Secondly we have a buxus hedge that looks like it has some type of fungi or mould? Is there any common conditions this is likely to be?

Thanks,
Amanda.

Hi there

Purchased two whisteria vines to put either side of our front door pergola.

One simply has not grown at all and has been in for 2-3 months now.

The other started great and grew like crazy (which is what we wanted) as wanted the two plants to grow up n over the pergola.

But all of a sudden it seems to have stopped growing and the leaves are turning yellow. Have sprayed it over the 3 months with insect remover as tiny holes appeared on the leaves. I should stress I’m a total newbe to gardening so wondered if there is something obvious that I’m doing wrong.

Many thanks
Helen

We bought a Wedding Cake Tree about November last year at Palmers, and it has struggled. Some of the branches have died, and it has been loosing it’s leaves for some time now, although I do know it is deciduous, but have seen other Wedding Cake Trees around the area which have not started to even loose their leaves. There are practically no leaves left on ours. It is not looking healthy at all. Do you have any suggestions on what we could do please?

Hi, a friend and I both bought one of these roses and neither have thrived and look as they will possibly die.
They are in a sunny position and have been watered and fed.

I have an old very large leggy red robin tree about 4-5 mtrs tall. I need to cut it right back to bare trunk and branches as it is out of control and I cannot reach the top to trim.
Can you tell me what month is the best to do this (don’t know if bugs or frosts could affect it if I cut at the wrong time). thanks

Hi there, we planted a Corokia Gentys Green hedge (10 in total) about 2 months ago which was to replace a 2 year old Pheblium Billarderi hedge that had started dying off. It seems that one of the Corokia bushes has died, initially we thought it was due to lack of water but none of the other bushes looked parched or are showing signs of dying or wilted/dried leaves. Our concern is that there is something in the soil which was the reason for the Pheblium dying.

We need to replace the Corokia otherwise there will be a gap in the hedge but don’t want the same fate to happen to this plant. Is there anything we can do to the soil beforehand, should we wait for a few weeks/ months before planting- any advice/suggestions would be appreciated.

Regards
Norma

I have leucoermum about6 years old in sandy sunny headland. It has recently yellowed most of foliage. I know you have to be very careful to avoid standard fertilisers but do you think it might be short of trace nutrients or can you suggest what to do?
