Hi,

I am looking for an evergreen climber to plant in a shaded area of my courtyard. I would prefer something that bears flowers. The courtyard does not get much sun. Im also wanting something that is fast growing.

I planted a griselinia hedge around 2 years ago, it is now about 90cm in height. I have now decided to extend the hedge. As the new griselinia will be a bit smaller I was wondering if I could relocate some of my existing plants so I have an alternating pattern of one larger, one smaller plant. This would give better instant screening and will provide a more consistent look overall. However I have read online you need to start root pruning a couple of months before the move. Is this only for larger plants? Could I move the size I’ve got successfully?

I have a terrace bed supported by an ugly concrete wall. I am looking for a plant to crawl across the concrete edge and trail down the wall a bit. The plant needs to have attractive evergreen foliage, able to withstand very strong southerly winds sometimes. The terrace bed gets a lot of sun, so the plant base will get full sun, but any leaves that trail down the wall will be in a south-facing shady area. The bed is irrigated. The main problem is very strong wind sometimes.

I have a bank (5m wide by 2m high) that has recently been cleared of vegetation. Would Virginian Creeper be suitable for providing cover on this bank, and if suitable, how far apart should I space the plants along the base, and how long do you think it would take to climb to the top of the bank?

I am planning a wedding for April 2014. What can I plant which will flower? hot pink/blue/purple/mauve? Shrubs and flowers. Currently I have camelias only flowering. I want a climber, a hedge which I can keep clipped short and something either wide of a pathway, also two flowering specimen trees (could be fruit). also something to esplandier. All of these need to be flowering mid April 2014?

I have a 45degree Bank caused from trying to lower a retaining wall on my new section. I want to fill this with something I do not have to maintain as access is very difficult. I’m keen on grevllias, maybe drummer boy or rambler. This bank faces north so has sun most of the day. There is no top soil at all on the bank. Your thoughts would be appreciated.
Ma y thanks

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.

We have a beachfront, east facing property. We have had a number of Nadina in the front of our section. Over this past winter the storms coming in off the sea have thrashed them to shreds. What should we replace them with that will grow to no more then a meter, survive the storms, survive the salt spray, look good?
