We have a Monstera and it is spreading out sideways. I heard that you can teach them to grow up a pole, what sort of stake would we use and how do we train it to go up rather than out?

I have 3 standard roses which from day 1 have not produced a great deal of foliage or flowers
This year is the 2nd year and very few flowers with lots of black spot. I have sprayed several times for the black stock. I fertilise with rose fertiliser, alpaca poo, coffee grounds, banana skins, sheep pellets and blood and bone. Depending what I am using around the garden at the time.
I have a thick growth of thyme under covering the ground under the roses. Maybe this sucking all the nutrients from the roses. I dont really want to pull this out.
The roses are sparse with foliage and branches are dying off. Not much of the main crown left.
Do you have any suggestions.
Thank you

Hi there, two years ago I planted alot of daffodils along my retained wall driveway. The first year they all came up and looked great – I left them in the ground but when they came up again a lot didn’t flower, lots of foliage but no flower. What would have been the issue? I have left them in again and got my fingers crossed for this season…

My anthurium has been flourishing For several years, flowering well and with healthy foliage. It has now become very leggy and tends to flop over the pot. Can I cut the stems a couple of inches below the lowest leaf and replant these?And the existing root and crown? This has not become too big for the pot so doesn’t.t need to be divided, I don’tthink. Shall I repot or just leave the crown to hopefully regrow. Thank you.

I bought lemon verbena from Palmers Pakuranga and the leaves are turning black around the edges. The plant is in a pot indoors next to a slider.
What is the cause?
Thanks

We had our trees harsh pruned by arborists at the end of 2016 season and haven’t gotten any fruit since.
I did water them over summer and gave a general garden fertiliser but doesn’t seem to have made a difference. What else should I be doing?
Prior to the pruning we used to get a 10 litre bucket a day of feijoas.

I grew G.Gypsy White from seed this summer. As a $4 packet of just 15 seeds produced only five plants I was keen to save seed for next year. Now the plants have turned brown I investigated if there were any seeds and found hundreds of tiny thread-like seedlings underneath the plant. I am wondering what my chances are of overwintering them and how to go about it – I don’t have a greenhouse.
