I’ve a steep bank in partial sun that’s been covered in thickets of Budleia and Clematis up until yesterday when we tore them all out. The soil is dry as it’s so steep any rain rolls right off. I’ve plenty of compost to lay down,but again it’s so steep I can’t really mulch it. I’d like to plant a vigorous and dense, low-growing ground cover that can hold it together and prevent any weeds sprouting back with as little maintenance as possible – do you have any recommendations?

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.

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.

Hi,

  • How far away should I keep a lilly pilly (EUGENIA VENTENATII) away from a pipeline/ water metre? (planning to have 8 of them growing up to 2m tall as a hedge)

  • If lilly pilly is not suitable, what are some safer options (large shrub or small trees, preferably fast growing) for privacy planting close to a pipeline/ water metre? My fence is 1.5m tall so would like the plants to grow taller than that.

Cheers,
C

Hi There

Can you tell me please if the triangle palm will grow on the coast in the Bay of Plenty? I was told it was an ‘indoors only’ plant??

I would appreciate your advice.

With Thanks and Best Wishes

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 🙂

In the near future I’m thinking of planting a Living Wall and see that you have an exclusive product available.
How much per unit is it and what are it’s dimensions? It would be something I’d do in sections as each fence panel is approx 1.5m high by 2.5 wide and there are 10 panels or so in all.

Regards,

Nic.
