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 have dug up my dahlias over winter. I noticed some of them had been damaged with being removed, and I am wondering if I should remove any bulbs which are not intact before replanting them.

I have lifted dahlia bulbs and noticed that some have been cut by the spade or pricked by the gardening fork. Should I remove those before storing the bulbs for winter?

Hi there.
I recently returned home to find all of my lawns mowed and edges line trimmed. I’m guessing it was a lawn mowing service for the rental property down the back that got the wrong house. Anyway after initially thinking this was a fantastic gift I soon discovered that 5 of my 6 young (14 months since planted at 30cm high) star jasmine bushes had been badly attacked by the line trimmer. 1 bush was completely ring barked about 3 inches in length right at the base. 2 other bushes had full ring barking on 1 or more limbs but not the complete bush and 1 bush was about 3 quarters ring barked. I’ve wrapped and taped some kitchen cloth around the exposed areas and have been keeping the cloth damp in an effort to keep them alive,
My question is how resilient are Star Jasmine? Will they die where completely stripped of bark or is there a chance my first aid measures may help? Or should I cut my losses and remove the damaged limbs to save the healthy ones remaining? The diameter of the plants at the base would only be around 10mm.
Many thanks
Dan

My neighbor and I, who live East Auckland, have both got a disease/bug in our feijoas this year. Little black bits on outside and the inside too. Are other people having this issue? How can it be prevented? Thanks.

Is it ok to put leaves in the compost with eggs from passionfruit vine hopper on them? Does the heat kill them or do they just keep hatching?

I have a Dracaena Draco tree which we have had for about 5 yrs. It has 1 head and has been been looking good until now, it has just flowered this summer, the flower is dying and now all the leaves seem to be dropping off. Im not sure if I need to cut off the flower, the top of the tree or do nothing.

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

I have 2 Ligustrum Rotundifolias in pots beside the front door. One is growing very well and has lots of new growth and shiny leaves – the other has dull leaves and they turn in towards the trunk and keep dying and falling off. It has got some new growth but compared to the other plant looks very unwell. What sort of disease has this got and is there anything to spray this with??
Thank you
