My lemon tree has little piles of sawdust under some of the branches. The leaves on these branches are also quite yellow. Is this lemon tree borer?

The fruit on my lemon tree are covered in wart like lumps and bumps. They are so ugly, we don’t know if they’re safe to eat.

Hi there,

I have a number of mature Cabbage Trees on the property which I like, but would like to “shape” a couple of them to stop limbs growing toward the balcony. I know from past experience simply cutting the limbs off will result in much thicker sprouting from the cut area.

Is there a way to treat the cut limb that will stop re-sprouting but not kill the tree? A friend suggested painting the limb with glyphosate but I’m not sure as I don’t want to kill the tree

I have recently planted a small Daphne plant, however since planting it the leaves are turning yellow and falling off. It is in the garden and doesn’t receive much sun in winter. How can I help it?

We planted two 2.5m Magnolia Grandiflora trees in our garden around a year ago. One of them has lost all of its leaves months ago but the branches still seem to have some green in them under the bark. We have very clay soil and noticed it not looking to well not long after being planted so dug out a lot of the clay and put in some compost and plenty of gypsum. This was months ago but it is still not producing any leaves. Any suggestions for rescuing this tree?

Hi, my Hebe Emerald Green in the front yard were doing really well for about 9 months, but now they are slowly turning brown and dying. Additional watering and fertilising didn’t seem to help at all. Is there anything I can do to save them or bring them back to life?

Thanks
Oliver

We have two large michelia figo growing close to each other. One started having a band/section of yellow leaves 4 weeks ago – about half way up. Now those leaves are dead and most of the leaves below this seem to be yellowing. The other tree has some random leaves turning yellow as well. Don’t want to lose these trees. What might be causing it, is there anything we can do?

I have three pittosporum plants growing along my fenceline. They have new growth and seem to be doing well, however I have just noticed that some of the leaves around the sides are yellowing and falling off. Could this be caused by some deficiency in the soil? Is there any products that would fix this?

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!!!

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.

Can you tell me how to look after my Australian Tree Grass tree (black boy) what sort of mix should I use, when do I repot, is it alright to tease out the roots as I think it is root bound in the pot it is in. What sort of fertiliser do I use and when.

I have a Clivia miniata planted into the soil in a shaded ( no sun) corner of the garden which has orange/ brown spots here and there on it’s leaves and edges of leaves. What is the cause of this and how can I put it right. This is it’s first year, when can I expect it to bloom ? I always make sure there is plenty of snail bait around it as I know that they love them.
