What is the best way to Trellis a bouganvillia? I have bought an obelisk but what happens when they outgrow that?

Hi
I have proposed a Spray Free Zone at our local playground, and I’m looking into options of how to manage the gardens there without using herbicide.

If you have any suggestions that would be great. In particular, any comments on the different brands of weed matting – in terms of their long term prevention of weeds (i know some brands are better than others).

Also if you have any comments about sprays that are organic, or have had any experience with non toxic Salt/Dishwash/Vinegar combos, or any hot steam systems.

Thanks

Hi there

Gemma from Awapuni Nurseries suggested you may be able to assist.

Two years ago we planted a small hedge of Callistemon Beka Beauty bottle brush. The first year saw plenty of growth and flowers and left them to get well established without trimming.

This summer growth has continued, they have become leggy but so far very few flowers. I suspect that I should have pruned off the seed capsules.

My question is am I correct, and just how much do I prune off – and when? Should they get a trimming regularly

Your advice will be much appreciated

Kind regards

Hi,
I have planted a Buxus hedge. I’ve done my spacing right between plants but I wanted to know what should the space be between the curb and the plant. Currently I have them planted very close to the concreate and I’m wondering if it’s a bit too close. I’ve tried to find out on google but can’t find any answers….
Thank you!

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

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

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
