When should a plum tree be pruned? And when is it too late in the year? I think it is too late for this year as can see new growth on it. My husband feels it is not too late to prune the tree. thanks for your help, Adrianna

I have a mandarin tree about 1m x 1m which I wish to move to a sunnier spot. When is the best time to do this and how should I prepare the new planting site? My soil is heavy yellow clay under very little topsoil.

Hi. I am having trouble deciding what to plant. I would like to plant an ornamental weeping tree in our lawn. I would like it to provide a bit of privacy out from our lounge which looks out on to a wetland area with a walkway. But I don’t want to block the view completely with a huge tree. I would like something with a bit of a wow factor. One I have been consider is the weeping pear.
Any help appreciated. Thanks

I have some black powdery stuff on the leaves of my cistrus trees and a white, almost cankerous stuff, on the rose stems. What do I use to fix these problems?

Hi there!

I just bought a Golder Special grapefruit tree and a Meyer lemon dwarf from your shop.
Then when I got home I read on your website that it’s better to do the planting in the spring.

My question is: should I plant them now or should I wait for the spring (I live in Tokoroa)?

Also if it is better to wait, I guess I should keep them indoors, right?
Should I put them in a room without heating or is it better to put them in a heated space?

Thank you in advance!

Hi there,
Could you please suggest an effective way of ridding my garden of oxalis? I am tired of pulling up these persistent weeds but do not wish to use anything that might kill my plants.

Thanks for your advice.
