Hi There,

I keep forgetting to come down to the shop and see you so this is easier. We have a peach tree which is now three years old. It has born some fruit [although the flowers were really prolific] but we have noticed that one branch has completely died. There are lots of groups of soft gum around the base of the tree and on the bottom branches. What do we need to do please?

Thank you
Linda

I planted a Mandarin Satsuma in my garden this time last year. In Spring, it was starting to grow. Strangely a branch came off from the lower stem with different leaves. The mandarin fruits are starting to fall off and this mandarin tree hasn’t grown much compared to the lemon tree planted the same time. My questions are: 1) what are those different leaves 2) do I need to do anything to that branches? http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=6470949&l=cdb15cd117&id=706145597

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.

We have a Luisa Plum Tree that we bought with us when we shifted to Greerton. We have lost a lot of fruit with the high winds we have had recently. The fruit still seems to be dropping even as it is getting bigger. Is the tree lacking in something? We keep it well watered and has good drainage

I have a blueberry growing in a pot. Good fruiting this first year. The plant has produced several quite long, new growth stems. Do I allow these to continue growing or should I prune them, and if so when and by how much? Also when and with what should I feed it? I have heard that blueberries like pine needles around their base – is there any substance to this story?

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

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!
