I want to acquire a Cestrum Nocturnum (Lady of The Night) plant or cutting. Do you stock these or know where they can be found?

Is October the correct time to plant a Lily Of The Valley shrub and do they like shade e.g. under trees or in the sun. I want one that smells nice and is hardy. I really appreciate being able to ask advice

Hi There
I recently lost my precious Cousin Lucy to Breast Cancer. I want to gift her Husband and children a nice outdoor plant to remember her by. I know that she loved Daphne and I thought a nice ornamental pot with a reasonably well established Daphne that could sit near the front door and provide a beautiful scent to remind them of her every time they walk past would be something they can take with them wherever they move to in future.
I am struggling to work out how to achieve this. It would need to be put together by somebody and delivered to their rural property on the north side of Taumarunui. I can’t find a garden centre near them that might be able to deliver it or that sells Daphne. Would Daphne survive in Taumarunui?
I would just come and do this myself but I am living in London.
Any helpful suggestions would be great.

Over a small lawn, we have a well established flowering cherry in an attractive umbrella shape. This year it did not flower prolifically as we have come to expect, and the new leaves are not as dense as usual. We live in Pakuranga, Auckland, and take a pride in our garden. The lawns are fertilised regularly and watered from November to March.

I wonder if the cherry has had enough of lawn fertiliser – or was the Spring too wet and miserable this year? If I were to try to help the cherry by adding potash, would that then upset the lawn? Maybe I should do nothing and wait to see what happens next Spring? Your guidance would be appreciated.
Thank you
Regards

I live in Auckland and have inherited an established Little Gem Magnolia which appears to have been trimmed regularly. I assume the Little Gem should be pruned “after flowering”, but it often has flowers! I have a man who comes to trim hedges, trees etc in November and March. When is the best time to regularly trim my Little Gem – and still have its flowers to enjoy?
Thank you
Regards

Looking for a recommendation for a flowering shrub that I can plant next to a gravesite. It needs to be very hardy with little to no maintenance.

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
