I have a Camellia called Black Night in my garden but it just doesn’t grow. The same shrub in another garden that was planted at the same time has grown and is about 4 times the size of mine. Is mine lacking something?

I have one completely dead Pseudopanax which is about 3 m high. When I looked closely there were numerous holes in the stems which looked larger than I have seen on my lemon tree with borer. However, when I broke the stems open lengthwise, there was a tunnel all the way.

I have these great hydrangea bushes, but unfortunately they haven’t blossomed these recent years. So, this spring I’ve watered it heaps, and have added some fertiliser, and a couple of their leaves have started turning yellow, should I be worried? And do you have any advice to make hydrangeas blossom again? Thanks heaps!

What fertiliser should I put on Sweet Peas to encourage them to flower.
They are growing really well but no flowers.

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

As above.

I grew some parsley, chives, coriander, basil and parsley indoors and it got whitefly.

A friend told me this is inevitable if grown indoors

Any help appreciated 🙂

A few of my pittosporim waimea ranging from 1.2 to 1.8metres are getting brown leaves & in some cases the leaves on whole branches have gone brown thus having to remove the whole branch. On a lower bush, all the leaves went brown I didnt remove any branches & the plant died. The larger plants are in total shade & the soil is moist. The lower bushes are in full sun. Can you offer advise so I dont loose any other bushes please.

Hello
I received a strawberries and cream hydrangea for Christmas. I have potted it with in an appropriate sized pot and it doesn’t seem to be taking off. It is planted in ‘tui’ mix and is watered every second day. The leaves are dark red on the tips and spots on the stems. The flowers are drooping and discolours. on them and the flowers are wilting. Am I doing something wrong? I don’t want to have killed my first plant 🙁

Thank you!

My white Daphne which is in a huge container has put on a lot of growth since flowering but has gone a bit floppy and producing yellow leaves. I do give it a lot of water (most days) and I have just given a good feed with liquid fish fertiliser as I wonder if this may be the problem?

Hi
Over the last 2 weeks we have had patches of black fungus or mould looking growth on our lawn. Only our lawn, not other peoples. It seems to be killing or burning the tops of the grass

I could try mowing it off, but I could be just spreading it. Attached couple of photos. Appreciate any help to identify and treat it.

Our small kowhai trees have been very troubled by the presence in HUGE numbers of the kowhai caterpillar. I understand they will not kill the tree but they certainly make it look unsightly. Is there a way to deter/ exterminate these voracious critters? This year I stopped counting at 1000 squashed caterpillars, but this method did take a concerted effort!!!

Is it possible to have too much potash in a fertilizer meant for flowering plants etc. e.g. K15?

We have had a scale insect (Large white daubs of Sticky Wax on stems) on our Gardinia now for some months but have not been able to combat it.
Can you tell me what we can use to remove this pest please.

How can I remove the black soot off my camellia hedge and prevent it from happening. I’ve moved into a home with mature garden and even the concrete path under the hedge is black …

Hi there

We have a large healthy looking camellia tree but for the past few years all the buds have fallen off. We might get one or two flowers but all the buds just drop off.

Thanks
