We are just landscaping a narrow path (concrete) along side the north side of our house. We have a garden approx 60cm wide between the path and the fence (stained a red brown colour). I would like to plant grasses or something at regular intervals then put down white lime chip to add interest and colour and break up the fence line. Can you please advise what type of plant would be suitable and not grow too big (i.e. over the path). It would be in semi shade.

I am currently putting in a new garden. I live in Wellington in the northern suburbs and we do get some strong winds. We are currently working on improving the soil as we go as it is mostly clay. We would like to put it a larger tree (deciduous) that would provide some green to the garden in summer and some shade and shelter. It would be in a position that would get a good amount of sun. Do you have any suggestions?

Hi There, I am looking for a fragrant bush / floral / thing for the front of my house next to my front door. The front of my house is split into two, with the door in the middle. To one side (at ground level) I’ve planted a row of golf ball pittosporums to the end of the house and I want to add some white hydrangeas in behind those to add some depth and texture.

On the other side is effectively a white plaster planter box which runs almost to the end of the house and is raised approx. 40cm from the ground. In front of that I plan on planting more golf balls and currently planted in the box are three standard camellias. It is for this space that I’d like something fragrant and I’m happy to do away with the standards if I have to.

My house is a dark charcoal with white windows and trims, so the greens and whites look fantastic as contrast and whatever I plant next I’d also like to be white.

If I’m able to send a photo it would probably make more sense!

Thank you for your patience – novice planter over here!

Rose 🙂

Hi there

I have a site that is clay, wet and falls on the south side of the corogated fence. It is 1200cm x 70cm and I have espalied limes on the fence which are doing well. The Convolulous that I had underneath and need to replace didn’t like the wet. I would like something in bulk, that is green, grey or white hues and that will grow to max 40cm high or can be pruned. It also lies beside my pool so needs to be able to work with that. Ie not make a mess 🙂
Someone suggested acorus mini green but interested in your thoughts.
Thank you

Can you give me some advise on what to plant that will grow successfully under a mature Pohutukawa and Toatara Tree? not much sun gets through, but well drained location, looking for something to fill up the plant bed. Plants that are in there now are not suitable, mismatch of everything currenlty, from Yukka’s to Rhodo’s, lilies and hydrangeas. I want to go native please.

Hi there,
I am looking for advice around hedging options for privacy please.
I would like a tall hedge that is evergreen, however it needs to have a relatively small trunk as it is going on a retaining wall.
Any ideas?
Thanks,
Leanne

What are some good plants for under planting under established hedges? The hedges are currently hiding a poor quality fence that can’t be replaced at the moment but the gaps under the hedge are fairly large so need something that will fill the space to hide the fence.

I’m thinking of planting Yucca filamentosa ‘Bright Edge” among plants like black/green mondo grass, coprosmas, hebes, libertias and dwarf phormiums. Is this variety of yucca frost tolerant (i.e. tolerant of Rotorua frost)??
