Hi, I have two Portuguese laurels and lately their leaves have been turning a sandy brown as if they have some kind of disease. This doesn’t usually happen. Is there something I could give then to stop it spreading?

Hello

We have Choysa Tenarta Toparies out the front of our house. They seem to have been attacked by Borer. We have pruned them well back so they are pretty much bare now.

What would you recommend to spray them with to get rid of it?? When spraying, do you spray down into the hollow branches as well and in the bark around trunk??

Look forward to your reply – thank you

Hi there, I’m about to have 2 pohutukawa tree stumps ground out and I would like to plant olive trees in the same spot as one of the stumps. The olive trees are a decent size (approx. 2m tall) and I will mix in some soil/garden mix with the saw dust/chips that are left behind but I’m just wondering if this will be enough for the trees to survive/cope with? Would appreciate your advice.

Thanking you in advance,
Jody Davies

I bought a Crown Jewel Gardenia last November, full of beautiful white blooms with very healthy foliage. The white blooms slowly yellowed & fell off … but many of the leaves also yellowed & dropped. It’s now half the size it was & the foliage looks very sparse & sick.

I’ve tried feeding it Nitrosol, watered it with Epsom Salts, moved it around into different spots … full sun, partial sun & also total shade. The plant tag reads ‘an easy & reliable evergreen Gardenia’. What am I doing wrong? I would appreciate your help.

Thanks,
Jane

My weeping cherry tree is 2.5 yrs old. It is only growing leaves on half of it. The other half has branches completely bare. It gets pretty much all day sun. I would very much appreciate your advice on what to do

Hi

I purchased a number of trees for our new house/section about two years ago. Everything has grown well, however, on returning from a month’s holiday we have noticed a white sticky substance on some of our trees. In particular, a small lemon tree and some pittosporum golf ball trees. A photo of the substance is attached.

I’ve tried googling it but can’t seem to find a lot. Are you able to tell me what it might be and how I should treat it?

Kind regards,
Julie

I have 2 large healthy Puka trees in totally different gardens on our section. They are 20 years old. They are both dying. The seed pods and shoots are soft and brown and rotten. The leaves are yellowing and dropping off. What is happening? Id there some kind of fungus causing this? Or is it old age?

Hi my mature five finger probably 10yo and 4m high died a sad death, leaves all browned up and dried up so we cut it out then my large puka, about 5_6m away from the five finger did the same. We cut it down too, now another puka that was doing ok and was beside the five finger is starting to look sick too. What can I do to save it. We have a dog so I don’t want to put anything on it that might be toxic to him. We have a small garden. Any advice would be appreciated. I’ll have no trees left soon.
Thanks

Hi there

My pineapple lily ( in a pot) has been flowering but now the flowers have turned into little seed pods.

Would you please tell me is it time for me to deadhead?
Do I simply cut the stems off near the bottom?

By the way, how often do I fertilise my pineapple lily now when it finishes flowering?

Thanks in advance for your advice. Much appreciated.

cheers

A while ago I took a diseased pumpkin leaf into plamers and I got advised to use super neem oil. It seemed to be working well but I noticed on the bottle that it said to not use of food crops. I was wondering if it’s okay to keep using this or if I should discontinue using this product.
Thank you!!
