Hi,

I am wondering what the best type of Camelia would survive in a coastal climate in the Bay of Plenty. It will be planted in a property that may not get regular watering as it is to be rented out and the purpose is for hedging against a fence in some areas and at the front of the house just the hedge no fence next to it. I want a small white camelia flower but unsure which type would be best, I am looking at the Sasanqua at the moment.

Your advice would be appreciated.

Thanks

Lee

Hi there,

I’ve got a couple of trees at my house, and I love them, but I have no idea what they are.

I’d love to know, so I can learn how to look after and prune them.

I have a range of photos. How should I send them?

Hi team, we’re on a crosslease; our nieghbour has recently put up a pergola which, while it meets the consent requirements, is 300 mm from the shared fence and a bit under 3 metres tall. From our side its not a good look and I’m seeking advice on how to screen it off or at least soften it. Our common fence runs roughly east-west and we are on the south side of it, so its fairly shady. I’m looking at maybe a 2.4 or 2.7 metre trellis topped off with a climber that will screen for as much of the year as possible. Any ideas would be very welcome. Advice on whether I can atach the trellis directly to the existing (post and paling, good condition) fence or if I need to put new posts on our side would be very useful, too. Thanks in advance.

Hi there. I live in sunny Gisborne, with the occasional frost, and have some potted seedlings saved from my own ‘forest’ of ake ake, cabbage tree, five finger, lemonwood etc and wonder if I can plant them out at this time of year or if it would be better in Sept? Your advice would be welcome. Thanks, Jan

We have just bought a house with a small back lawn that had ready lawn laid. The grass hasn’t taken to the soil and is extremely fine, even just light raking of garden leaves pulls up masses of grass. It’s like a mat sitting on top that doesn’t penetrate into the soil at all. Any ideas how we can fix it. We have had suggestions of killing it and starting again, can we just put new grass seed in and hope it thickens up?

I have a slightly bare section. around the edge of the section we have some big casserena trees planted about 2-3m apart. it is very dry in the summer, and very wet in the winter cause we are in a valley and dont have the best drainage. my question is- what would be some colourful hardy plants of any sort that might take a hold of these harsh conditions and grow well???

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?

Hi there

We have fruit trees (lemon, lime, peach, nectarine, fig) planted in raised gardens around the border of our backyard. Around the edge of these gardens we have strawberries, and then tulips and crocus planted underneath the trees throughout. I’m looking for something else to plant (probably annuals?) that will attract bees and butterflies into the garden over the spring & summer months and was looking for some suggestions please? Bonus points for edible flowers!
Thanks 🙂
