Hello

Can I have some advice on what I could plant in a shelled garden that is low maintenance, at the moment we have some miniature flaxes which have take over the garden, I have found one plant I would like in there, but I want to put something that is low maintenance, thin leafed, I don’t want grasses as we have some and they now need to be pulled out. We live in Northland and have been in draught for last few years so it needs to be some hardy as well.

Many thanks

Aneta

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?

Dear Palmers

Im relativly new to gardening and finding annual plant replacement a difficult experience. I am currently growing tomatoes, lettuce, eggplant, bok choi, marigolds, spring onions, shoo fly, nastursiums, and christmas lillies. As summer progresses i would like some advice for what i should be planing in preperation for winter and some companion plants for said plants (ideally some asain greens? or other hairloom verities prefered).

Regards
Stephen

I am having a new house built in Greerton Tauranga and visited your Bethlehem store last month to ask about Urban Turf.
Do you have anyone in the area that can lay it for me please?
Peter estimated I may need 7m.

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

Hello I have just put in a new white picket fence out from of my house.

I have created a garden on my property against the fence. Total length is about 4m and THE width varies as I’ve curved it – but widest point 2M and narrowest point is about .5M.

The garden as it stands is empty. I am wanting to build up the garden height a little and then plant out with smallish shrubs (1-1.5m high) at the back and then smaller flowering evergreen foliage at the front.

Soooo – couple a questions.
What’s the best thing I should use to prep this garden – mulch,more top soil, compost etc?
Any suggestions for flowering evergreen shrubs and anything else to plant?

Area can be hot and dry, frost resistant. Nearby in the driveway have buxus hedging surrounding roses, and daphne as hedging.

Hi

Hoping you can please help me. With a few questions:
– What is the best ground cover in Wellington climate? (I have a large hill of grass that I want to plant some ground cover over so I don’t have to weed eat in the future
– I also want to plant two small flower gardens – what are the best plants to use? Lavender? Roses?
– I need to plant hedges that I hope will grow quickly and to 2m tall. What would the best type of hedge be?

Thanks so much

My Lawn has lots of weeds growing in it. What should I use to kill them off, which won’t damage the grass itself?

Hi, we need some advice on which type of plant to use to block the view into the neighbours yards. We want to get a hedge (or multiple small trees?) put along one side of our house, and there is 2.3m between the house and the existing fence line. We are living near Warkworth (north of Auckland) and have clay soil that has a lot of worms in it. We’re also near the bottom of a hill so the clay soil is pretty damp as we get all of the rain runoff from multiple directions. Can we get some advice as to which plants would work best in this situation and for the small space that we have? Thanks.

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???
