We have had several months of very wet weather in the Manawatu, and as a consequence I now have a a large infestation of moss in my lawns. I have three questions; 1. When is the best time to eradicate the moss? 2. What should I use? 3. What can I do to prevent a recurrence of the moss?

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?

We planted 4 ornamental grapes in late spring by the corner posts of our veranda pergola. They are flourishing but sending out laterals and shoots into nearby bush roses. How do we train these young vines up the posts..do we prune back the laterals/shoots now to enable the stronger cane to run up the post? How short do we prune back the shoots/laterals?
I would appreciate any advice you could offer.
Many thanks

Hello,

I have a hydrangea which I planted last spring. I pruned it back in winter after it had lost all its leaves and flowers. I’d noticed a number of leaf buds starting to appear and have been keeping a close eye in them and then today I noticed it looked as though all of them had been snapped off. What would be doing this and how can I prevent it from happening?

Thanks,

Amanda

I have cleared an old garden and planted some veges instead but nothing grows very well. The soil is clearly too sour or something. Where can I get my soil tested?

Could you please give me some advice on pruning my Podylaria sweet pea shrub? I planted it out last winter but it hasn’t flowered yet. Otherwise looks healthy but a bit spindly.
