Hi, can you please suggest perennials, which will survive shade and sun (if there any) and which are about 50-70cm. high at maximum.

Thank you,
Anna.

What are the ideal conditions for growing yuccas? Are they suitable for a narrow strip to the SW of my property?

I am planting a new garden at the beach. What would you recommend as some of your top costal plants? Would Griselinia as hedging tolarate costal conditions? and also flaxes, in particular Phormium Dark Delight tolarate the salt? and would Yuka’s survive beach conditions? I like cordylines but have a height restriction so perhaps Yuka’s may be better?

We want to fill our sloping section with a variety of low maintenance plants that can a tolerant of half and full sun and will withstand a moderate Wellington northerly! Hopefully something to keep the weeds down once established. What are your top picks?

I am planning a wedding for April 2014. What can I plant which will flower? hot pink/blue/purple/mauve? Shrubs and flowers. Currently I have camelias only flowering. I want a climber, a hedge which I can keep clipped short and something either wide of a pathway, also two flowering specimen trees (could be fruit). also something to esplandier. All of these need to be flowering mid April 2014?

Hi there, one of the plants I have recently bought from my local Palmers Garden Centre has died 🙁 my neighbour said Palmers will replace plants that die within 12 months of purchase. Is that true? Thanks 🙂

I am developing a fence line garden that gets more shade than sun each day. The rest of the landscaping theme is subtropical. I live about 30 kms from your Bethlehem store I was hoping you could give me some advice/ideas so that I do my planning/research before I travel back to the store on the weekend.

I live in a unit which has a small fenced back yard which I am presently trying to landscape with low maintenance shrubs. I would love to add a couple of small trees. The width is 20M, but there is a garden shed and fold-down clothesline on the north-facing fence which only leaves 4M length in that corner. The other corner has a stormwater manhole. A deck surrounded by a raised bed leaves 6M length on that side. I am thinking Choisya Ternata in the corners with Star Jasmine along the fenceline, but am stumped when it comes to the trees! Neighbours’ windows are close to the back fence on the clothesline corner. The other corner has small trees behind against neighbours’ fencelines.. I was thinking perhaps a Port Wine Magnolia in that corner, but would like your thoughts on this too. The clothesline side is the problem, as I don’t want to block the sun or anger the neighbours. The obvious choice is a very small deciduous, perhaps 4-5M height X 3M width, but I can’t think what would be best. I can send a photo if that would help?

Thank you,

Anne

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
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
Charlotte

I have a dying pohutukawa tree which is underneath a large tree with large leave with occasional white big flowers. What should I do with my poor tree. We have only just bought this property and we are trying to change our outdoor environment to be more sustainable.

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

I have a phebalium hedge running the full length on one side of my property in Upper Hutt. The height is about 2.4 meters.
It has been planted alongside a wooden fence which is about 1.6 meters high.
I would like to top this hedge and bring it down to about the top of the fence.
The hedge is at least 40 years old.
When is the best time to trim it.
Thank you

The school has been gifted 2 Pohutukawa trees and I have a number of locations I can plant but they vary in light drainage etc. What is the ideal location to plant these trees?
