We planted a pomegrante some years ago.it is espalliered on a wooden fence facing north to Matua. We get fruit but they are hard and dont seem to ripen. Do we need another one for fertilisation? Any tips welcome. Thank you

Hello. I have been given a young passionfruit plant in a pot, probably measuring 60cm in height. I’ve read the comprehensive info above on growing and maintaining the plant but am unsure what I should do with it until the recommended planting time in spring. At present, it’s in a conservatory and doing very well indeed. Please can you guide me as to the best conditions and location for my plant until summer? I live in the Hutt Valley and we don’t get many frosts… Thanks so much! Chris.

Can I still purchase a pittisporum that has the tiny black seed heads from time to time, and in the early summer evenings smell delicious. I have had them in two gardens, and wish to purchase one for my new location in Upper Hutt.

is this a good time to transplant trees from a pot to into the ground? Ex. Avocado or Pohutukawa trees.

Magnolia tree has got very spindly and leaves look brown and diseased. There are very few leaves on the tree. I bought two from your store in Rotorua a few years ago and the other is beautiful full of lovely green leaves new branches and looks very healthy. I have fertilized them with a fruit and shrub fertilizer after each flowering season. It does have some few flower pods at present.
My other tree has what looks like rogue branches with very large leaves growing from the root stock. Do I cut these off. Many thanks.

Once aster daisies have died off do I pull the plants out and throw away or do you cut them down
If so do they re grow next year. I thought they were perennials

We have a Monstera and it is spreading out sideways. I heard that you can teach them to grow up a pole, what sort of stake would we use and how do we train it to go up rather than out?

I have 3 standard roses which from day 1 have not produced a great deal of foliage or flowers
This year is the 2nd year and very few flowers with lots of black spot. I have sprayed several times for the black stock. I fertilise with rose fertiliser, alpaca poo, coffee grounds, banana skins, sheep pellets and blood and bone. Depending what I am using around the garden at the time.
I have a thick growth of thyme under covering the ground under the roses. Maybe this sucking all the nutrients from the roses. I dont really want to pull this out.
The roses are sparse with foliage and branches are dying off. Not much of the main crown left.
Do you have any suggestions.
Thank you

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…

My anthurium has been flourishing For several years, flowering well and with healthy foliage. It has now become very leggy and tends to flop over the pot. Can I cut the stems a couple of inches below the lowest leaf and replant these?And the existing root and crown? This has not become too big for the pot so doesn’t.t need to be divided, I don’tthink. Shall I repot or just leave the crown to hopefully regrow. Thank you.

I bought lemon verbena from Palmers Pakuranga and the leaves are turning black around the edges. The plant is in a pot indoors next to a slider.
What is the cause?
Thanks
