Any suggestions on what is wrong with our avocado please? We’re in north Auckland. It’s a Cleopatra purchased and planted about 4 months ago and I dont think it’s very happy. Any advice appreciated!

Hi there,
Could you please suggest an effective way of ridding my garden of oxalis? I am tired of pulling up these persistent weeds but do not wish to use anything that might kill my plants.

Thanks for your advice.

Hi there

I have this Vine Weevil grub killing my Blueberries. As it is living in the ground how can I get rid of it? Any speedy advice would be great thanks as the garden centres I have asked at have been unable to give me an answer.

Thanks.

Do you stock a liquid frost cover? I want to spray my tamarillo trees this year. If you do is it one you mix up?

I’ve discovered my string of pearls has mealy bugs! After some research online, I first treated it with a spray of water, dish soap and crushed garlic. It seemed to get rid of some bugs but not all. I have also read that repotting a plant with mealy bugs is a good idea, but because string of pearls is so delicate, I am worried I will damage it even more.

What should I do! Would an insecticide be best, and which one should I use?

Thanks in advance,
Charlotte

Hi I need some advice please. I purchased a Tamarinda from your Plimmerton outlet on the 6 April and followed the instructions regarding planting in semi shade etc and removed some of the flowers to avoid stressing the plant. For the first 2 1/2 weeks it was looking great and then we had a cold snap. During the last 10 days it has completely collapsed and looks to be dyeing off. When I originally planted it I watered it well and then followed up with watering about 4-5 days later then again about 6 days later.
I am not sure if it is dyeing or if it it will regenerate again come spring. Can you please advise
Thanks

If you could email me back and I can send through the photos.

Thanks

The leaves on my rhododendron have all turned brown after lack of water over dry summer and there is no sign of green growth. Can I assume it’s dead and pull it out or is there any possibility it could still be alive? What about cutting it right back to see what happens — and if so how far? Many thanks for your advice here
Regards
Christine

Hi there, two years ago I planted alot of daffodils along my retained wall driveway. The first year they all came up and looked great – I left them in the ground but when they came up again a lot didn’t flower, lots of foliage but no flower. What would have been the issue? I have left them in again and got my fingers crossed for this season…

I spray my roses monthly – and spray anything else in need, at the same time. First Question: Is it okay to mix Spraying Oil with a mixture of an insecticide, a fungicide and a liquid fertiliser? Second Question: When my spray mixture includes Oil (mealy bug at present), do I still need to add a wetting agent, eg. Sprayfix?
Thanks for your help.

Hi,
I have white soft sticky spots on the branches of my pittasporim. There are a lot of ants on these trees and the branches are dying. Can you tell me what I need to kill this disease.
Thank you.
