I have a bottle brush in my front garden among some other lower growing plants like Mock Orange and a few hardy natives. The bottle brush is a bit sparse and open in the lower branches and I want to thicken it out as this planted area provides a screening effect from the street. What I am considering is whether an older variety climbing rose might be compatible in that garden environment? I want to make sure that if I did this that it won’t put Tui’s off from coming to the bottle brush flowers in the late spring?

I have a lot of box hedging. Recently I have found that a few plants are looking quite sick and I was told it could be a blight. What can I do to save these plants?

Hi
I joined up in Bethlehem, but live in Akld.
I have just received my first email, but it relates to the Bethlehem store.
Is there any way I can receive Akld-specific news and offers instead?

It is not the leaves that are going brown, they look very healthy, it is the flowers that are getting brown on my Hydrangea’s – almost like they are burnt. I am now presuming this might be due to heat – like a sunburn, but wonder if you have a suggestion please.

When is the correct time to plant bulbs into pots – can all vareity of bulbs be planted at the same time or for example are daffodils planted at a different time to tulips. What is the best food to feed them and should this be done at planting time?

Hi, I bought bulb fertiliser only to find when I got home that the packet says not suitable for bulbs in pots. Why would this be the case, and what should I use for bulbs in pots. Thanks.

I would like to plant some bushes with thorns under a bedroom window to deter burglars who have previously broken in through this window. The area to cover is aproc 1m high 4m wide and up to 1m deep, I would prefer a native plant, but that is secondary to the deterrent effect. The area gets afternoon sun and is reasonably well drained.

Hi there, have some buxus hedging at our place and have noticed over the last few months it it turning yellow in parts and some parts looking withered and dying. Is this simply just a matter of not enough water? Am watering about once or twice a week. Or is it something else? I have noticed driving around the neighbourhood that others have the same issue.

I have a cabbage tree in a large pot.
It provides good screening, which is what I want.
There are so many “heads” on it that it seems crowded, there being very short stalks to each head.
I’d like advice on how to remove some of these and how to treat the cuts.

The root ball fills the pot and there is no option of re-potting.

I look forward to your advice.

Can I use fallen cabbage trees leaves as mulch or do these sour the soil? I am thinking for under my orange tree.

A number of cabbage trees that were damaged with a severe storm. 3 heads (and up to 1m of stem) have been snapped off (were about 3-4m tall with a trunk about 8-10cm wide) and another small one has just become loose and leans right over (it is only about 1.5m tall and has a trunk around 5cm thick). Are these salvageable? What is my best plan of attack?

My calla lilies have failed to flower every year. I used to grow beautiful calla lilies when I lived in Whakatane, so when I shifted to Rotorua 10 years ago, I decided to plant them here too. However, they have never flowered. Is it bad bulbs, or the environment? They are in a shadier position here than in my Whakatane garden.

My camellia bushes have become rather large trees – can I reduce their height at this time of the year?
