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.

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 would be grateful for some advice on pruning fig trees please. My trees are about 4 years old and this is the second year that I have been lucky enough to pick fruit, however I am unable to reach the fruit on the higher branches.

Your advice would be gratefully received.

Thank you

Kind regards

I need to know how to correctly prune my grape that has had it’s first year. Once leaves drop off, is there any photos or videos to show what to do. So many conflicting ways.

Thanks

What is the best way to get nets over quite large fruit trees,i.e.plums or pears, to prevent the fruit being eaten by birds? What other successful ways are there to deter birds?
