Hello

I have a 2mx3m garden bed next to my garage that is all clay. In summer it is in full sun and winter only part sun. I would like to fill it with plants as you walk past it to get to there front door.

What plants would you recommend planting in that area?

Regards

Jess

Hello
We have moved into a property with beautiful Michaela trees that have been under planted with dietes and hebe. Despite regular watering, the dietes are not flowering in the shade of the trees. Would you be able to suggest a colourful alternative?
Many thanks
Anne

Hi. Any ideas on a successful way to grow a plant fence boarder in planters that are removable? Have moved into a place with a potentially lovely road frontage but the fence is falling apart. Would be great to be able to hide it from view with some clever simple small bush natives in containers to encourage more bird life and enjoy the view. Thanks Zena

Hi there
I have just purchase a property which has a garden I wish to turn into a tropical garden, so wish to know what would be the best plants to grow in a north/east facing garden without shade. There are a few fruit trees there which I wish to keep as I enjoy picking my own product. Also I wish to have some of the back plants to grow taller to give me more of a private back garden too.

Hi, I want to plant some trees for privacy that wont grow more than approximately 4-6metres. Preferably green, not going to turn into big hedge and easy to prune. What would you have in mind? Thankyou

Hi I have just moved into a property where the garden was loved once upon a time.
Some of the flower beds (even though they are extremely over grown) still have some surprises in like Strawberries and mint kale and silver beet.
Would it be best to take out what I want to rescue and start again or to try and weed by hand around them.

We rent a property with a lovely flat lawn of approx 400sqm. We don’t have too many issues with prickles like onehunga weed but the lawn is very weedy with lots of clover. I know it won’t be perfect but i’d like to try and get it a bit healthier without spending a fortune. Can you advise what the best few things to do would be? I have just done an all over spray on Weed & Feed. What should I do next?

Hi, I have a very shaded back fence that doesn’t get any sun on it. I have planted 6 Montevilla plants, hoping they would creep along the fence. However they haven’t grown. Can you give me a suggestion for another creeping plant that doesn’t require sun to grow. I would like the plant to have white flowers as it’s a black fence.

Hi there
Are you able to advise on what plants would go well in pots outside on a deck which gets very hot with miday sun till evening. I was wanting them quite tall/large but not sure what would survive in high amounts of sun.

Thank you

Hi – I’m surrounded by concrete and I wanted to plant some trees in large pots – they need to be tall to block out some fencing … any ideas which trees (say 2 metres high) grow well in pots – in Wellington – in relatively sunny spot …. I cold dig up concrete but I suspect some drains etc under there … Thanks!

Hello, we have just uplifted lawn to the rear of the property which gets little sun. I would like to plant about four shrubs along the fenceline (can’t be too tall as we are in a retirement village) – but better upwards than spreading too far out. The area gets a small amount of sun late afternoon. I did think of fuscias but not sure if they would be the best option. Thank you for your help. Maxine
