Hello, I live in New Plymouth and have a ‘wet’ but not boggy flat section, I want to plant 4 trees along the front fence, that will look great all year, let sunlight in, in winter and dappled shade in summer & not grow over 3mtrs … I may want to underplant these trees with lavender or ericas (or similar) for easy care.. do you have any suggestions of tree & matched underplanting .. thanks Lee

Hi Lee, you should be able to circumvent the wetness by planting higher so that water will drain away from the tree. To get sunlight in winter and semi shade in summer you are looking at a deciduous tree. However if you want something that grows not taller than 3 metres that does restrict your options a little.

There is a range of maples that would work or some of Mark Jury Magnolias would be really nice (Magnolia are pushing the 3m limit a little!).

One concern with lavenders is they really need full sun to get the best out of them! Most of these plants most likely will come into the stores during Late June and July. I am sure Martin and his team at our New Plymouth store will be able to help you and might have further ideas as well.

Thanks, the Palmers team
