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 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!

We moved into our new house at the end of last year and have planted feijoas as a hedge along one side of our property. Unfortunately we didn’t realise it would get zero sun over the winter months, but very sunny over summer. Will our plants survive? Or is there something we can do to help them during the winter months?
Thanks,
Anna

I have an orange tree almost completely covered in sooty mould. I intend to spray the tree with Mavrik citrus spray. How often would you recommend I use this product on the tree?

I have a two year old dwarf feijoa which has just produced its first fruit. Recently the leaves of one quadrant of the tree which faces east have turned yellow and are starting to fall. The rest of the tree looks very healthy. There is no visible insect infestation as far as I can tell and it does get sprayed when I treat several citrus in the same area. I have given liquid fertiliser to the root area and canopy over the past couple of weeks but cannot see any marked improvement.

Hi, can you please advise if I should trim long shooting branches to the size if the rest of the tree. My lemon tree has a couple of long reaching young branches and the rest of the branches are all about the same smaller size, it’s like I have 2 rogue branches!

When we first got our lime we grew it in a large pot and got a few lines off it. As time went by it got quite large so we planted it in the garden. No limes since. What would you recommend. Cut the tree out and start again and keep in a pot. Or cut this one back and repot and hope for the best.
Thanks

Hi team
I purchased one of your plum trees 3/4 months ago for around $22. After planting it seemed to shut down then started sprouting from the base. I removed the sprouts but now there is nothing to determine if it is alive or dead as absolutely no foliage is present?
Please could you advise me on what I could do to possibly revive my omega plum dream?
Thank you

Hello. I have been given a young passionfruit plant in a pot, probably measuring 60cm in height. I’ve read the comprehensive info above on growing and maintaining the plant but am unsure what I should do with it until the recommended planting time in spring. At present, it’s in a conservatory and doing very well indeed. Please can you guide me as to the best conditions and location for my plant until summer? I live in the Hutt Valley and we don’t get many frosts… Thanks so much! Chris.
