Hi there, I’m going to plant a magnolia tree. the soil in my yard is made of normal soil and clay, so I’m not sure how big the hole I should dig and should I add some specific soil in the hole first¿
Thanks

Once aster daisies have died off do I pull the plants out and throw away or do you cut them down
If so do they re grow next year. I thought they were perennials

I bought lemon verbena from Palmers Pakuranga and the leaves are turning black around the edges. The plant is in a pot indoors next to a slider.
What is the cause?
Thanks

I grew G.Gypsy White from seed this summer. As a $4 packet of just 15 seeds produced only five plants I was keen to save seed for next year. Now the plants have turned brown I investigated if there were any seeds and found hundreds of tiny thread-like seedlings underneath the plant. I am wondering what my chances are of overwintering them and how to go about it – I don’t have a greenhouse.

Hi

My question is two fold

I would like to grow a number of camellias clipped into standards. Then under plant with black mondo grass

What varieties of camellias would suit this best? I want to keep them to about 1.5m
Also, as camellias need an acid soil would that be OK for the mondo grass?

I have grown sunflowers for the first time this year and am amazed at the wonderful results. Now that they are almost over when do I cut them down and what to do with the dinner plate size heads?
I would be grateful for any tips or suggestions regarding sunflowers. I think the seeds were annuals.
Many thanks.

When I spray with Conqueror Oil in conjunction with other sprays, do I need the usual Sprayfix as well, or does the Oil repel the weather? I am spraying roses and other flowers in the home garden.
