We recently ripped out an old garden of scrappy plants and replaced them with native plants and river stones but we have a rogue Peace Lily that keeps sprouting in one area. Is there anyway we can kill it without having to dig it out? Is there anything we can spray on it that wont kill the surrounding plants – the shoots are sprouting about 50-60cm away from the nearest native plant.

Help please -we have had to harvest our swedes and need to know how best to store them. I have read to use moist peat but know that the use of peat is frowned upon- I cannot seem to track it down anyway. would bark chippings be a suitable substitute or just compost or wood shavings? got plenty of bark chippings and wood shavings if they would be suitable.
Also have had to harvest our leeks. I know they can be left in the ground so would it be worth trying to re-plant them or storing them in whatever ?
Thank you

Regards

Linda

Can you advise where in NZ I might purchase a Nelson Rain train(travelling irrigator)They are made in USA but surely there must be a NZ outlet. I used to own two when had a big garden in Otaki. Moved to Aussie but have moved back to Keri keri and have a lot of lawn to water.They are excellent as they travel back up a hose and can be left on overnight.Thanks Ray

Hi there,

I have a strip of garden that is 7.5m long and am not sure what I can plant in it. It gets full sun till midday in winter and 1:30 in summer then shaded by the house for the rest of the day. Id like flowering plants with any colours preferably for cutting.

Any ideas would help…

Is this a good time to plant a Mandevilla – Ruby Fantacy. Our Northland weather is still very warm and it would be in a sheltered position.

Enquiry / request: I would like to purchase a Ligularia Japonicum (leopard plant). My mother had one in the 50’s and she called hers a moon plant because of the large green leaves with yellow spots on them. I have a Ligularia Japonicum (tractor seat) which has lovely large plain green leaves. would you be able to help?

Hi. I have a long narrow garden across the front of my house. It is against the house so in shade all day until late afternoon. It is not sheltered so can be exposed to winds. What will thrive there? Ideally I would love to have plants with flowers to soften the house (currently not looking very attractive) Many thanks. Jo

I was recently in Honolulu Hawaii and there were an abundance of a beautiful tree surrounding the Waikiki side of Honolulu. It grows like an umbrella shaped tree with bunches of flowers a lot like wisteria hanging down from under the branches. Flowers were deep orange or creamy yellow. I would love one on my lawn. Any ideas as to what it is. Thank you
